Here is a question I am asked a lot . . .

“How do you have so much white in your home with four kids?” Followed by, “And how are you able to keep it clean?”

My answer always sounds something like this . . .

I’m not able to keep it pristine and perfect, there are filters for that (thank you Instagram), and for everything else there is Mr. Clean – Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, that is.  Perfection is over-rated and, honestly, I’m past that.  I love a home that is lived in, a crooked picture here, a smudgy window there, but I certainly don’t want my light colored walls turning a darker shade.  I chose a white that is a little more forgiving than bright white in a semi-gloss finish to make it easy for wiping down.   Most of my walls were painted about eight years ago and they are just now starting to look like they could benefit from a fresh coat.  A wash cloth, water, and my Mr. Clean Magic Eraser really do go a long way.

I La La Love to use the Magic Eraser on :

1 / The Walls and molding – It’s great for scuff marks and dirty little hand prints that trail this long hallway.  I also find myself using it a lot on door frames, from wanna be Spider-Man climbing the walls.

2 / Outdoor Furniture – After the long winter a little spring cleaning is needed and a wipe down with the Magic Eraser always gets the tough spots, hanging out from last year, out.

3 / My floors – My floors are painted white in our bedroom and I have a hard time keeping them clean.  Mostly because my bedroom is sandwiched between the kitchen and my husbands office.  Basically, there is a lot of traffic which means scuff marks and tracking in dirt, all the time.  One day, I decided to pull out the Magic Eraser and try it on my painted floor and it did the job.  I later discovered that there is a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser Mop and I’ve been using it ever since.

Cleaning White Floors

The Magic Eraser is the best product I’ve found for cleaning all the white.

If you came over you’d see that, yes, there is a lot of white in my house, that it is not pristine, but is kept clean.  With four kids, I still love my white walls and floor.  The white couch, well that is another story.

Do you love the Magic Eraser as much as me?  

How do you like to use it in your home?

I learned a few new interesting ways to use the Magic Eraser, that I can’t wait to try, from watching this video, where Jillian Harris shares her some of her dirty little secrets.

I’m hitting up my shower door next, to get rid of the hard water build-up and soap scum.

    I don’t have good luck with majic eraser. They fall apart and leave smudges. I work in a store and sometimes clean the formica counters, but they just don’t work.

    I’m sorry to hear that. I just tried the eraser on my children’s gym shoes, which was a new-to-me suggestion, and it worked great.
