How To Clean Your Iconic Chair and Your Jewelry

After working for a high-end furniture company for about a year, I was able to come away with a couple of small pieces that I had been coveting for quite some time (thank you, sample sale!) Bringing home my Eames Molded Plastic chair with an Eiffel base was a big day for me! And I was sent home with some fantastic cleaning advice. I'm not expecting this to be much of a surprise to our savvy readers, but I was told to keep my pristine white chair spotless using the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser! I know, I know, there have been gobs of posts about this product, but it really does work like a dream to instantly remove all manner of scuffs and marks.

Here's the part that truly surprised me. I recently learned from my favorite local Austin jewelry shop, Schatzelein, that I can also use the Magic Eraser to clean silver jewelry! A polishing cloth works just fine for polished silver, but I have a few pieces with more of a brushed finish like the ring below.

Just a few swipes with a small bit of the Magic Eraser shined my ring up amazingly! This works for other items around the house, as well, but I would recommend washing anything that you serve food from after using the Magic Eraser. Every so often I remember to give my brushed silver a quick cleaning, and my jewelry stays looking like new. Then I go sit in my spotless Eames chair!
