What Is a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser?

Mr. Clean Magic Erasers are a household staple for removing stains, grime, and build-up. So how does a Magic Eraser work? They make these magic sponges from melamine foam—a versatile and safe cleaning material that can get rid of everything from permanent marker stains to scuff marks. Melamine resin cures into a foam with a microstructure that becomes almost as hard as glass, while still maintaining the look and feel of regular foam. Because a Mr. Clean sponge is made with an open-cell foam, they clean with a very mild abrasive and absorb dirt and grime.

How to Use Mr. Clean Magic Erasers

Magic Erasers can be used dry, but adding water to the sponge will help it absorb dirt. You should perform a spot test before you use the Magic Eraser, as the very fine, sandpaper-like surface can alter the finish on some surfaces.

For most stains, dirt, and grime, you’ll see a noticeable difference by wiping the sponge across the surface. Stubborn stains like rust and layers of buildup may require a little more scrubbing. The amazing clean you get when you use Mr. Clean’s Magic Erasers isn’t smoke and mirrors. The directions are simple: Wet. Squeeze. Erase.

Can You Use a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser on Everything?

A magic sponge may seem like the ultimate cleaning tool, but they may clean some surfaces too well! Don’t use Magic Erasers on these surfaces, or surfaces like them:

Car Paint

According to, Magic Erasers have the abrasiveness of 3000 to 5000 grit sandpaper. That may not sound like much, but even the mildest abrasive can damage a car’s finish.

Natural Stone Surfaces

Mr. Clean Magic Erasers can scratch glossy, delicate surfaces such as granite and marble. Even though you may not see the tiny scratches, using any abrasive cleaner will make the surface dull.

Non-Stick Cookware

Cleaning non-stick cookware with a Magic Eraser will damage the non-stick coating, making the cookware useless. You can safely clean even grimy buildup from non-stick cookware with baking soda and water.

Stainless Steel

Melamine foam can dull and scratch stainless steel. While it may be tempting to use a Magic Eraser to buff out light scratches, there are safer ways to bring back your stainless steel’s shine.

Wood Surfaces

While Magic Erasers can get crayon marks, scuffs, and stains off most painted walls, don’t use them to clean wood paneling or other finished wood surfaces. The abrasiveness can scratch and even strip away the finish.

Mr. Clean’s Magic Erasers are a handy cleaning tool, whether you need to quickly shine up your home or want to do a deeper clean. They outperform the leading all-purpose bleach spray so you can clean messes, without worrying about staining your fabrics or using harsh chemicals around your family. It may be magic, but it’s no trick. Seeing is believing!
