Soo0 what do you know about magic erasers? - Page 2
However, I do not trick myself into thinking they're safe or healthy for us or for the environment. I wear gloves while using them, and after I've used them, I carefully wipe up all the little shreds that break loose off the things, and then wash the surface carefully with lots of water (except for the walls-- I can't see my kids or pets licking the walls, and we don't eat off them, so I just wipe up the bits). I wash the gloves carefully before using them for anything else. I put the Magic Erasers away safely when I'm not using them. And I feel terribly guilty every time I have to dispose of one in the trash.
So far, though, the guilt hasn't been enough to dissuade me from getting one when my walls or cupboards get really dirty. They're the only non-"natural" product in our house most of the time.
even though it is made from a formaldehyde material, the amount that is found occasionally(normally none is found) in the final product is less than the amount in the air in your house. So other than choking risks you would have almost no problems even if you ate one(not suggesting that in any way)
there is absolutely no reason not to get one http://home.howstuffworks.com/magic-eraser1.htm it is completely safe... call poison control or your local elementary science teacher to find out why(or the link above). They work amazingly if you remember to test it on a surface first.
I would never bring one into my house for many of the reasons already listed here. I have been cleaning everything with ENJO for the last three years and my house is cleaner than ever with less effort and no chemicals. I have been able to remove permanent marker stains, crayon from walls, face paint from upholstery with the green kitchen glove. I know several people who have stopped buying Magic Erasers after trying ENJO.
