  • I don't use them because they are extremely toxic for kids.

  • They're amazing. They will clean counters, bathtubs, walls, toys, anything! I use them whenever there is a spot that I can't get off of a hard surface. Just yesterday, I had a letter that got wet on the counter and an ink stamp leaked onto the counter top. I tried a regular cleaner, no luck. Pulled out a magic eraser and it was gone in seconds.

  • I think they are definitely worth it, although I buy the store brand instead of Mr. Clean, about $2 less per pack and work just as good. I use them for all sorts of things...a pack of 4 lasts me a good long time. Unless you are doing some heavy giant job, one will last quite a while.

  • They are wonderful at getting crayon, marker and dried on food off walls! anything you want to brighten up use one of them. If you buy used shoes at a garage sale just clean them up with the magic eraser and they look like new.

  • I agree they are great. However, I have had a problem w/them leaving white marks on dark colored items so stick to white or light... otherwise they are great!

  • I've used them on walls, baseboards, sinks, counters, tubs, and they work WONDERS on stove tops - they get the burnt on ickiness off without much elbow grease! Also, our fridge has that "textured" look to it and it's hard to get the dirt off - but it's super easy to clean with the eraser!
    Also, if you have smudge marks on any lineoleum, laminate, etc. floors - it gets that right off!

  • Anon:11 - How are these toxic? I've never noticed that they contained chemicals, they are similar to a sponge. I swear by them they work on everything!

  • love em, love em, love em. My 1yr old thought he was picasso one day and took a crayon and drew all over my walls. I was at work, dh thought it was cute, ugh. I took the mr. clean eraser and now its all gone.

    They clean anything...marks off walls, furniture, and floors. My favorite use for them though is to get soap scum off of the shower glass door. I used to have to scrub and scrub to get the glass door clean. It takes less than 5 minutes to get it clean with the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser.
