Not my kind of cleaning supply, but to each his/her own. :)

I learned that you can polish silver really well with a magic eraser. It isn't harsh on your hands, either!

It's also great for that padded, textured surface on the fridge handle.

Magic eraser cleans black stains on shower floor.

It's also great for cleaning solid surface cook tops. They look pretty, but I find them tough to keep looking good!

Magic Erasers will work well on vinyl purses and little girls' white dress-up shoes.

I agree with Jan about using it for solid surface cooktops. No matter how much I scrub and scrape, there's always a brown ring around the "burner". The Magic Eraser is the only thing I've found to get that clean.

Wow! Had no idea it did so much! I was just using it on my tub for soap scum. And my fridge handle. I'm taking it out and trying it on more stuff! Thanks for the great ideas. =D

We lived in an apartment with one of those crappy plastic showers and the only thing that ever got ours clean was that niffty magic eraser!
It also gets chocolate sauce off of a flat paint wall! Ask my two year old about that ;)

it works great on floor grout.

Gets rid of tea stains from mugs and cups, takes lead pencil & coloured pencil off the walls, brilliant for cleaning mouse pads, rough plastics

Will remove those lovely scuff marks on white or light coloured floors; the ones known in our house as "kiwi tracks"

It works WONDERS on my teen and tween's sneakers. Finally something that is not messy and will not leave their shoes wet so they can clean them and wear them.
