(Hello, secret luva)
My Magic Erasers have been there, when no other cleaner, cleaning rag, combined with my sheer muscle power, weren't.
They have easily wiped away powerful stains, such as black SHARPIE permanent marker, soap scum, scuff marks, greasy dirt, crayon, pencil.... I could go on and on!
Our relationship runs deep, within my soul.
But one day, while shopping at the crusty-slipper, pajama wearing shopper's, habitat (other wise known as WalMart), something caught my eye. I was reaching for my dear Magic Erasers, when I saw a less attractive "eraser". His box wasn't as nearly muscle-ly or as colorful, but the price was right.(Mr. Clean Original Magic Eraser 4 pack cost $2.99 and Mr. WalMart Eraser 4 pack cost $2.60) And that's when I remembered that you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover and decided to perform a little experiment.
Do the Mr. WalMart brand erasers work just as well, worse or better than my good 'ol reliable Mr. Clean brand.
I compared the two erasers when I first took them out of the boxes. They basically look the same and feel the same. The Mr. Clean brand seemed to be a teeny, tiny, tiny bit thicker. Just a tiny bit. (fingers pinched together)
(I would have taken pictures of my experiment, but I didn't. I have no excuse)
Then I scrubbed one soap scummy shower wall with the Mr. Clean Eraser and another wall with the Mr. WalMart Eraser.(gotta love the hard, Utah water! Not!)
Both performed very well. I would even say they performed equally, well.
But...(dun! dun! dun!)
The Mr. Clean Eraser disintegrated faster. Mr. Walmart Eraser held up better and longer!
Say it ain't so, my luva!
Alas, my relationship with Mr. Clean Magic Erasers is no longer. I have decided to lower my standards and continue a new, exciting love affair with the cheaper Mr. WalMart Eraser.
*Another amazing tip - these erasers can even clean your gold jewelery!
