There is magic in the world!



It is that glorious time of year again, Spring Cleaning! I have my various stages of cleaning: the "surface clean"; the general wipe down of the house , no deep scrubbing or toothbrushes involved. I then have my "two year old clean". This is when I get on my knees at a two year old level and see a whole new dimension of fingerprints and marks never seen before. I also see a bit more dust on the baseboards and carpet spots this way. Then, I have my "new house clean". That is the bi-annual deep clean, get all the marks off the walls, retouch any paint , scrub all the nooks with toothbrushes, restore the house to a new house clean. Like I said, this only happens twice a year. So, for any of you also in the spring cleaning mode, make sure you arm yourself for the truly mystifying MAGIC ERASER! Be prepared to be wowed. It gets everything off. You know when your child throws a toy against the wall and the blue paint from the toy spiderman car rubs off on the wall? Well, this will get it off. All the black scuffs on the baseboards...Gone! Murals from your two year old ;crayon, marker or even white board marker...Gone! I bought one last year and was so excited that I couldn't put it down. My house looked repainted in an hour. You all must have a box of these in your home. Watch out and test on paint first. I am sure it wears down a layer but I haven't had a problem yet. This is a must in any home. They are cheap and truly magic!

I do love these things...I haven't been able to take the dry erase markers off of the flat paint on my stairs, though. Any other surface works great, that I've tried. I love how they clean up my porcelain sinks.

Luke took a black sharpie marker to our hardwood floors when we lived in draper...thought I would kill him. I called my sister who told me to go buy this. I had to scrub extra hard but it eventually came off. I do love this! The scuff marks on the baseboards is amazingly easy. Every mom should have this in their cleaning closet!!!

Great product...love it myself! Only thing is you might have to be careful letting kids handle it. I've seen pictures of kids that have used it on their skin trying to get markers off and gotten serious chemical burns! Kind of scary....

I just wanted to comment on your blog. A friend from South Weber Utah showed me your blog a week ago and it's so nice to see someone like minded but "enlightened" more than myself. I am on a quest to feed my family in the most healthy way and I am sad I don't live near you to attend your cooking classes and such. However, I am so greatful for your blog and insight and that I am able to read it. I live in St. George Utah... I'm sure you have fans all over. Just wanted to say thanks and dito about Mr. Clean's magic. I went private with my blog but wouldn't mind sharing with you since without you knowing have been sharing with me.
Thanks again!!!!!!
