Tips From My Cleaning Professional: Get a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser
Some of my listings need a good cleaning before they go on the market so they can be presented in the best possible condition for potential buyers.
When that happens, I have a wonderful cleaning professional in the Edwardsville, Glen Carbon region. (If you'd like an introduction, let me know.)
The most recent house she sparkled up for me is a terrific three-bedroom, all-brick ranch in the Leclaire neighborhood in Edwardsville, Illinois. It had been a rental and when the renters moved out, the cleaning service moved in at my direction.
I took a look at the house after she was done and WOW, what a difference. It was so clean it squeeked.
"What's your secret?" I asked my cleaner.
She wouldn't tell me all of her proprietary cleaning knowledge -- but one suggestion she happily shared was this: "Go out and get a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. Right now."
So I did.
Friends, I don't know what the heck this thing is made of, but every surface I have touched with it -- from bathroom shower doors and the microwave to a grungy igloo cooler and scuffed tennis shoes -- comes out cleaner.
No one has ever accused me of cleaning too much, but this product almost makes it fun to do housework. Almost.
