Cheap magic for sellers.......

No, I don't own stock in Procter and Gamble. I just love their product: Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. Maybe it is because I am not a very good housekeeper that I had never heard of it. I read about it in stager Starr Osborne's go-to book Home Staging that Works ($11.95 at Amazon). I give that to all my sellers too. Magic is no over-statement for the "Magic" Eraser. It takes scuff marks and finger marks off walls...cleans up switch plates and bathroom tile grout. It makes Stainless shine. I have a white plastic Jasper Morrison-designed coffee maker by Rowenta that I splurged on because so many coffee makers are ugly and that one has a very pleasing design. But I was just about to throw it out because it was looking dingy and had a big, eyesore rust mark on the top. Like magic, the Magic Eraser zapped that rust mark that had resisted many previous scrubbings. Magic Eraser does have drawbacks: it is flimsy and disintigrates quicky. The manufacturer recommends testing it in an inconspicuous spot to make sure it does not harm your finishes. It is expensive.... But so is repainting! One comment on Amazon.com said the user was happy to pay $1 a week for a constant supply because her shower looked so clean.

I forgot to applaud Procter and Gamble for using 100% recycled cardboard in the packaging!

Hey Zeta - I think I just found something else to put in the trunk of my car ... and I'm sure that I'll find a use for it more than once.
