    mr clean magic eraser

    I've tried searching but I can't find the post about using a mr clean magic eraser. Anybody remember what it was about? I just remember that I was impressed and when I found mine I couldn't remember what it was about. Boo!!!

    It's been mentioned for cleaning build-up on irons, and I'm sure it would be good for that, but I spray starch all the time and nothing has built up on my iron. I use the magic erasers on my ceramic cooktop and they're great for that. Dampen it first to prevent crumbling.

    I love them too, I have white kitchen cupboards and those magic erasers are simply the easiest thing to wipe them down with.

    Somewhere I read that a quilter used one dry to scrub her cutting matte. I use a kitchen sponge with the green side (dry) to scrub off threads,etc from my cutting mattes.
    I use Mr Clean Magic Erasers to clean tons of things in my home, plus to clean hard shelled gourds.

    I use a dampened magic eraser to clean my iron and it works GREAT. Be sure the iron is cold when you clean it. (Unlike Rose_P, I get all kinds of buildup on my iron.)

    p.s. This is probably the absolute best hint I've learned here so far!!!

    I remember my mom cleaning build-up off the bottom her iron by putting salt on a sheet of waxed paper and moving the iron over the salt. I guess it acted like an abrasive like sand paper. Anyway, it sure got off the build-up.

    Are you sure it was waxed paper and not parchment?? I would think that the wax would melt and stick to the iron, which would defeat the purpose of cleaning it...

    I've done it with salt but on aluminum foil.
