I learned about the Magic Eraser a couple of years ago. I had a non breathable top on the boat and found a severe case of mildew on the seats and everything when I took the top off. I had tried all kinds of things and nothing was working. Read about the ME on another forum and the wife had some in her cleaning supplies so I tried one. I was blown away with how little effort it took to remove the mildrew. Just a light wipe with the ME and wipe down with a damp rag. Put on a good coat of conditioner and no problem since.Thumbs Up
For sure Charles it should be in Tips and Tricks (or whatever it is called. LOL)

Wouldn't be without them. I always have a bottle of Awesome cleaner and a couple boxes of Magic erasers in the boat. They clean most anything the Awesome won't. On a side note, if you have a stainless steel sink at home, give it a try. You will be pleasantly surprised..

Lol, me to when I was using them the other day I didn't even notice until my wife made the comment "I think it's time to change that thing" I had worn it down to just a lil nub, it was less than a 1" square left!

I just thought I'd share my experience the other day, I did a deep cleaning on my boat the other day, I removed everything from it and went to town. First thing I tackled was the new vinyl floor, in the short time I've had it I've noticed that it holds stains and dirt very bad and soap and water with a brush won't cut it the only thing I've got to clean it is a pressure washer. Ok on to the seats I bought some 303 and I got the cleaner and the protectant the cleaner worked pretty good for me if I used a brush and rubbed it in really well but the game changer was a magic eraser, this thing is incredible any spots left over that the cleaner wouldent get the magic eraser took care of it with very lil effort! I also had a couple spots on my white PS console where I got grease on it after installing the gearbox , I've tried alot of stuff to clean it and even got desperate and used spray bleach and a hard bristle brush with no luck, but to my surprise the magic eraser took care of that also....if you remember my rebuild you'll remember I painted my fence frames white, they look great but the tops of the tubeing collects dirt and looked to be mildewing, again I was trying everything to clean it with no luck but I accidentally touched it with the magic eraser while cleaning a spot on a couch and it took it right off so I tried a different spot that was alot worse and with almost no effort it was gone and back to bright white I'm going to buy a stockpile of these things and use them because they work. After I cleaned all the seats I protected them with 303 protectant and I really like the look it gave them, very shiney and new looking...o ya I also cleaned the seat bases with the magic eraser and it took off the scuffs from shoes and other things!
Just thought I'd share, maybe it will help someone who needs to clean a stubborn spot!
