It's magic

We were blessed with a rent free house. We didn’t have to furnish the house, but we chose to put our own couch and a chair along with other minor decorations. With Pier 1 gift cards we purchased our own kitchen table, but decided to keep it in the box and use the table that the house already had.

One year my husband gave me flowers for my birthday and I displayed them on the kitchen table. Next to the vase I had several papers with my signed name. So you can imagine my surprised face, when I came home and saw a big mess on the table. Apparently the vase couldn’t hold the flowers and it fell over spilling the water all over the signed papers. When I picked up the papers, I noticed that my name was now imprinted on the table.

My heart was beating fast and I was wondering how in the world I am going to get rid of the mess. I remembered that not too long ago I used Magic Eraser to clean up some marks on the door, so I decided to try the Magic Eraser to get rid of the ink on the table. Believe it on now, but in a matter of a minute my name was no longer on the table. I felt relieved!!!

Since that incident I have used Magic Eraser for cleaning white cabinet, doors, sink, you name it. Have you used Magic Eraser?


  1. Yep, and I love it! I've used it to get all kinds of marks off of my walls, which saves me from touch-up painting! Yay!

  2. Oh, I could give you a hug! I've used magic eraser for fingerprints and smudges on the wall, but I've never thought about tackling my tabletop with it. Thanks for the idea!

  3. I love the magic eraser too but it will take the finish off of some woods. Just check a small, hidden spot first before rubbing down your whole table.

  4. I love it! I used it to get writing off the bathroom wall in my classroom... took off markers, crayons, and pencil marks. lol

  5. I'm not sure if you know but Magic Eraser can be purchased online from Japanese stores or Amazon. They're generally cheaper and better quality.
