How To Get The Most Out Of Magic Erasers:
The only downside to these eraser blocks is that they don’t last long. But that’s a testament to their cleaning power — their tiny pores get filled with all the gunk that’s hiding in small spaces.
To get more life out of your Magic Erasers, try this:
1. Cut each Magic Eraser into 4 equal-sized pieces (across the shortest width of the eraser, rather than lengthwise). This way, you get 4 times the amount of cleaning out of one Eraser!
2. Lightly mist it with water (by misting or using the kitchen sink sprayer), rather than saturating it with water — which causes it to shrivel up more.
3. Scrub lightly with the Magic Eraser, then wipe the area with a wet towel to prevent smearing the dirt/grime and remove any residue.
4. When it starts to get yucky (after cleaning a few different items), simply spray rinse it again to revive it a bit. Then squeeze the excess water out, and continue using it until it starts to shred.

  1. Hey there are using WordPress for your blog platform?
    I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and create my
    own. Do you require any html coding knowledge to make your own blog?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    • No, I have 0 computer knowledge. My web host (Lime communications) set everything up and showed me how to update but If I can do it anyone can. It’s very easy.

  2. Hey there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working
    with? I’m loking to start my owwn bloog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time
    making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    The reason I ask is bedcause your layout seems different then most blogs
    and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    • No platform at all. I follow a whole bunch of private bloggers and some magazines for ideas, then researd items and usually write my own.

  3. Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely
    long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly
    enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new
    to everything. Do you have any helpful hints for first-time blog writers?

    I’d certainly appreciate it.

    • I subscribe to anything on-line in the industry we are in. For example: House and Home, Better Homes and Gardens, Houzz, Casual Living, and friends in the industry as well that would give you some insight to your blog. Use only free photos from the web or ones you have taken yourself, you could be hit with a bill for a copyrighted photo otherwise.I get ideas and make up my own stories or if you want to copy another blog, email them, ask permission and save the permission in a file. Most bloggers are happy and flattered to share. Some may want a link to their website or whatever included in your blog but it’s all good. After that, I read home magazines, flip through flyers etc. and sometimes an idea just pops into my head. Our website is set up to store blogs ahead of time and schedule them so that is a huge help. Hope this helps. Of, and use spell check…nothing ruins a good article more than bad spelling (and grammar).
