The Mr. Clean Magic Eraser works by using water to remove dirt, grease and other forms of residue. It is effective on many surfaces, including tabletops, doors, floors and household appliances; however, it is too abrasive to use on certain glossy surfaces, such as the exterior of a car.
Different versions of the Magic Eraser are available on the market, as of 2015. The bath scrubber incorporates a cleanser that dissolves three times more soap scum than the leading all-purpose bleach spray. The kitchen scrubber incorporates Dawn dishwashing liquid, and it also eliminates three times the amount of grease than the leading all-purpose bleach spray. Both the bath scrubber and the kitchen scrubber are purchasable through Amazon.com.
