I was well into adulthood before I learned about this cleaning game changer.

You might read this and think, "How had she never heard of this product?" I know. I'm with you. I seriously wondered, where have I been?

My recent miracle-of-a-cleaning product discovery? The Magic Eraser. (Note, this is not a sponsored post and I don't have a free lifetime supply of Magic Erasers. I just seriously love this thing and think everyone should know about it.)

Perhaps you're off at college or renting your first apartment. Or perhaps, like me, you've been adulting for a (long) while. You live your life, things get messy — and you've had some serious cleanup to do. (Yes, I'm talking literally and metaphorically.) I thought I knew all the ways to clean everything. Until I was at my boss' house with my young daughter, who was doodling on some paper, and her doodling drifted onto my boss' very white walls. (Ugh.) I freaked. My boss didn't because she's amazing like that.

Instead, she pulled out a Magic Eraser (which looks like a little white brick), she wet it slightly, and then rubbed it over the pencil marks … and I'm telling you, like MAGIC, the marks disappeared. I have never been the same. It was just so simple. When a kid was at my house last weekend and got dirty fingerprints on my white walls, out came the Magic Cleaning Eraser. When my cute white sneakers weren't so cute nor white anymore, out came M.E. to clean up the scuffs. When my newly renovated kitchen gets smudges on the cabinets, I'm sure you can imagine by now how I clean those up.

I felt it was my duty to pass this knowledge on to those of you who, like me, somehow missed the memo that this product is the answer to your cleaning woes. Get it for your kitchen, get it for your bathroom, get it for your own peace of mind. So, you can be that super cool person who doesn't sweat it when guests spill, mark, or mess up your stuff.
