Mr. Clean Saves Your Back

You’ve got at least fifty large black scuff marks on the walls left by your last tenant. Add fingerprints and regular dirt and you’re looking at a least a half-day of painting . The outside temperatures are breaking 100 degrees Fahrenheit and you don’t have the time or money to tackle a major painting job. Is there another solution?

Mr. Clean Eraser Sticks.

They just could be the most important cleaning breakthrough in the last ten, perhaps twenty years. 

Why the rave?

They work.

When one of our tenants attempted to dump two super-sized, less than beautiful couches on us, we got technical.

We held her deposit until she came back for them.  Consequently, the scuff marks.  She wasn’t too careful taking them down the narrow stairwell.

The stairwell walls and landing might as well have been spray painted with graffiti by the time she got those ugly garage sale rejects down and out.

Then I remembered Mr. Clean’s Eraser Sticks.

It was time to put them to the test.

That’s when the bald man came through.

I took out the first eraser stick and started gently rubbing. Notice I did not rub hard. Miraculously, one of the larger, more colossal scuff marks disappeared pronto. I rubbed the next black mark and kept rubbing them out, one by one.

Like a real eraser. Hence, the name, I reckon. Magic Eraser Sticks. Somehow it clicks. At least for me.

All in all, we removed every single one of the marks.

 Most of them disappeared with gentle rubbing. The really tough marks came out with medium to heavy duty rubbing. Take, note because this is important. None of them were left. Nada. I even did some of them left handed.

Wow, to put it mildly.

How much money did we really save?

When you count the increasing prices of paint, at least $50. And that’s only the beginning.

You can go figure what it would have cost us to hire it all out by those expensive experts who charge by the hour, and ceiling height, etc.

It can add up fast. When you compare the minuscule cost of a box of four magic erasers, well, there just isn’t a comparison because eraser sticks are only a few bucks a box.

So exactly what’s in the bald man’s erasers? Who knows? As long as those little sponge-like things work. If I can be saved from having to paint a large area on a blazing July afternoon, the bald man’s got at least one more very loyal admirer.
