    Steps

    1Gather your tools and materials

    Below are all of the tools and materials you'll need to complete this project.

    2How to activate your magic eraser

    The Mr Clean Eraser Pads remove heavy duty messes with water activated micro-scrubbers that reach into surface grooves, lifting away even the toughest soils.

    Before using the magic eraser, activate it by rinsing under a tap and squeezing out the excess water.

    3Remove adhesive labels

    After removing as much of the label as possible, rub the eraser over the area until the adhesive disappears. You may need to rinse and squeeze out the eraser during this process.

    4Remove permanent marker

    Every now and then, we accidentally use a permanent marker where we shouldn't have – like on a whiteboard! The magic eraser makes it easy to remove – simply wet, squeeze and rub over the marker. With a little elbow grease, it should lift.

    5Clean a keyboard or laptop

    Computers are notoriously hard to clean, as water and electrics do not mix. The water-free nature of the magic eraser solves this issue, so you can wipe over your keyboard and surrounding areas to remove grease and grime.

    6Remove scratch marks

    Put the wall cleaner away! A magic eraser can easily lift any scratch marks from your walls without any chemicals.

    7Remove food stains

    Stubborn food stains from the likes of beetroot or coffee can play havoc on your benchtops. Instead of using intense chemicals, simply activate the eraser and get scrubbing – the marks should come off in no time.

    8Clean shoes

    Canvas or fabric shoes can't be polished, so how do you keep them clean? Forget the washing machine: a magic eraser can remove all grime from your sneakers and sole.

    9Clean rangehood

    A build up of oils, fingerprints and residue on your rangehood often requires a little more effort than a regular all-purpose spray. Do away with the chemicals altogether with the magic eraser – use the rougher side to dislodge the marks, before wiping everything away.

    10Remove crayon

    Crayon on your walls is every parent's nightmare. However, a magic eraser makes removing it a dream – the textured side catches the crayon, making it easy to remove. Finish with a wipe using the sponge side for a streak-free look.

    11Remove coffee stains

    Transform your stained coffee mugs with a quick scrub with the magic eraser. As a food-safe product, it's a great way to have your crockery looking as good as new.
