100 Things You Should Never Clean with a Magic Eraser

1. Don’t use them dry

The allure of Magic Erasers lies in their simplicity: just add water and watch them work wonders. However, using them dry can actually intensify their abrasiveness, potentially causing more harm than good. Adding water helps to soften the eraser, making it gentler on surfaces while maintaining its cleaning power.

2. Don’t use them to polish your car (or any delicately painted surface)

Despite their seemingly gentle foam texture, Magic Erasers become as abrasive as 3000-grit sandpaper when wet. This makes them unsuitable for use on delicate painted surfaces like cars, where they can easily strip away paint or cause scratches. Avoid the temptation to use them for car detailing unless you want to compound your cleaning woes.

3. Don’t use them without gloves

While Magic Erasers excel at tackling stubborn stains and grime, they can also pose a risk to your skin. The abrasive nature of melamine foam pads means they can cause irritation or even burns if used directly on bare skin. Always wear protective gloves when using Magic Erasers to shield your hands from potential harm.

4. Don’t use them to clean delicate countertops

Despite their soft feel, Magic Erasers pack a powerful punch when it comes to cleaning. This means they’re not suitable for use on delicate countertops like granite or marble, as they can scratch the surface and damage the sealant. Avoid the temptation to use them on fine stone surfaces to prevent dulling and maintain their pristine appearance.

5. Don’t use them to wipe down nonstick pots and pans

While Magic Erasers may seem like a convenient all-purpose cleaning solution, they’re not suitable for use on nonstick cookware. Using them to scrub nonstick surfaces can cause scratches, compromising the integrity of the nonstick coating and potentially releasing harmful chemicals into your food. Stick to gentler cleaning methods to preserve the quality of your cookware.

6. Don’t try to brighten stainless steel

Despite their effectiveness at removing stubborn stains, Magic Erasers should be used with caution on stainless steel surfaces. Excessive scrubbing can damage the high-gloss finish commonly found on stainless steel appliances, leaving them dull and scratched. Avoid using Magic Erasers on stainless steel unless you’re prepared to risk compromising their appearance.

 7. Avoid using them on electronic screens

While Magic Erasers can work wonders on many surfaces, they should never be used on electronic screens such as TVs, computer monitors, or smartphones. The abrasive nature of the eraser can damage the delicate screen coatings, leaving behind scratches or streaks that are difficult to remove. Opt for specialized screen cleaners and microfiber cloths instead to safely clean electronic displays without risking damage.

8. Don’t use them on wood surfaces

Despite their versatility, Magic Erasers are not suitable for cleaning wood surfaces. The abrasive action of the eraser can strip away finishes and leave behind scratches, marring the natural beauty of the wood. Avoid using Magic Erasers on furniture, floors, or any other wooden surfaces to prevent damage and maintain their appearance.

9. Avoid using them on painted walls without testing first

While Magic Erasers are often hailed as miracle workers for removing scuffs and marks from painted walls, it’s essential to proceed with caution. Before using a Magic Eraser on a painted surface, test it in an inconspicuous area to ensure it doesn’t remove paint or damage the finish. Some paints may be more susceptible to abrasion than others, so it’s better to be safe than sorry.

10. Don’t use them on clothing or fabrics

While it may be tempting to use a Magic Eraser to tackle stubborn stains on clothing or upholstery, it’s best to resist the urge.

14. Don’t use them on mirrors or glass

While Magic Erasers are great for tackling tough stains and grime, they are not suitable for use on mirrors or glass surfaces.
