How a magic eraser can clean up these 4 stubborn messes


If you’re a household god or goddess, then we bet no mess is beyond your reach. Nevertheless, we all know that the shorter the scrubbing time, the better. That’s why we love trusted tools that help us save valuable time during cleaning.

Although this cult cleaning product – the Mr. Clean Magic Sponge – is usually touted as doing one thing well, we thought you’d like to know that it’s capable of so much more!

Before we get started, the star of our video, YouTuber Brittany from VasseurBeauty, suggests cutting the sponges into thirds and moistening them with a spray bottle of water. This will give you more control over the scrub and make the product last much longer!

Although our hostess gives us 20 useful tips in her video, we think these 4 tips are the most surprising. Here’s how you can get the most out of your Magic Eraser.

1-Remove scratches from walls
