Does anyone know if there is a non cunsumable alternative to Mr Clean magic Erasers. They are about the only cleaning product I buy still. I would love to find something that lasted.

What about a vapor steamer? We picked up an inexpensive one (which means $50 rather than $1500). It doesn't hold a lot of water, but it does work well. I didn't want to spend the money on it, so dh is the one who usually takes over jobs that require it. It gets stuff clean and I don't have to do it? $50 well spent!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>

How about microfiber towels? They can be pricey, but you can use them to clean EVERYTHING and you just throw them in with the wash (no fabric softner though!) They hold like 400x their weight in dirt and moisture and are lint-free, so you can wash windows with just a little vinegar water - streak free. They make great dusters (no dust excapes!) They will also clean crayon and the like right off walls and most surfaces, just like the erasers. I typically use mine dry for that sort of stuff, damp for dirty or oily messes.<br><br>
I get mine at the Don Aslett cleaning center (a local cleaning guru), but I've seen them at places like Target and definitely online or on shopping channels. They cost a few bucks apiece, but are supposed to be reusable for 300 to 400 washes, so they might as well last forever. I bought 4 in a pack a year ago, use one at least every day, and they still look just as new as when I bought them. Go for the highest quality you can afford - mine have a really short pile on one side (great for glass and getting crayon off), and a longer pile on the other (great for dusting.)<br><br>
Hope that helps!<br><br>
