My son got this Melissa and Doug easel for Christmas when he was just two years old. It has taken a beating by both him and his sister over the years. At one point they colored on it with regular markers, not dry erase, and no matter how much I scrubbed it, I couldn’t get the marker off. It was stressing me out, so I put it in the garage. Then recently my good friend suggested I clean it with a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. . . she’s the kind of friend that always has good advice. . . .
Look what a little elbow grease and a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser did for our poor easel! Except for a few marks on the wood it looks as good as it did 3.5 years ago when it was found under the Christmas tree! I flipped the wood bar on the bottom and gave the tray a bath.
Amazon has a great deal on Mr. Clean Magic Eraser Cleaning Pads, 8-Count Box – just $6.15 shipped with subscribe and save. It is an 8-count box, so that’s only $0.77 cents each.
Hope this advice helps you, too! What sorts of things have you cleaned with a Mr. Clean Magic Erase?
Disclaimer – Make sure and read the directions on your Mr. Clean Magic Eraser box. There are some surfaces that can become discolored or worn after being cleaned with a Magic Eraser. I was willing to risk it, since my easel was already in such bad shape. Don’t blame me if Mr. Eraser rubs the paint off of something or you chip a nail scrubbing. 😉
