The Best Dirty Little Secret for Effortless Spring Cleaning

published Mar 24, 2016

We thought our home was doing pretty well in the cleanliness department – until the season changed and a perfect shaft of light came through the window, bringing new illumination to what can only be termed as ‘grime’ (A line of salty boot scuffs in the entryway! Previously invisible soap scum from all our wintertime bubble baths!). Nothing highlights a winter’s worth of mess like a little spring sunshine.

So we were excited to see lifestyle personality Jillian Harris showing off the many uses of one of our favorite secret weapons, Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. Seriously, this little guy can do anything, all over the house — watch Jillian show off its skills in the video above, then read on for tips on spring cleaning smart, not hard.

With water-activated micro-scrubbers that remove more grime per swipe than the leading all-purpose bleach spray cleaner, Mr. Clean Magic Eraser can help you get your home sparkling and get you outside. Here’s how:

Banish winter walls.

Snow, salt, dirt: Snow boots are mess magnets. Use Mr. Clean Magic Eraser to say goodbye to a season’s worth of grime and scuff marks on your walls and trim. (As with any cleaning product, it’s a good idea to test a small area first.) Then forget that winter ever happened.

Love your oven.

Winter’s hearty meals can do a number on your oven. (Um, are those grease stains from our New Year’s roast?) The Magic Eraser can tackle every inch of the oven, from the racks to the glass door. Ditto the microwave.

Get outside!

Al fresco-eating season has begun: Even if your first BBQ of the year is minutes away, Mr. Clean Magic Eraser will wipe away any trace of winter on your outdoor furniture and grill.

Use shower power.

Maybe the sun is shining but your bathroom surfaces aren’t. No problem: Mr. Clean Magic Eraser will power right through hard water build-up and soap scum on sinks, tubs, toilets and glass shower doors. May we suggest rewarding yourself with a bubble bath?
