If you paint with water colors, and want to lift some color off the rag paper, Magic Erasers do it best, and restores the white to the paper.


Here's four tips to help you get more life out of your Magic Erasers:

Cut Magic Erasers into 4 or even 8 equal-sized pieces (across the width, not the length) to get much more cleaning out of a single block!

Lightly mist Magic Erasers with water using a spray bottle, rather than saturating it with water (which causes it to shrivel up more).

Scrub lightly with the Magic Eraser, then wipe the area with a wet towel to avoid smearing the dirt and grime, and to remove any residue.

When your Magic Eraser starts to get dirty, spray it with water to rinse it and revive it. Squeeze the excess water out, and continue using it until the block starts to shred apart.


Magic Erasers clean by micro-abrasion. Wipe lightly (don't scrub hard) and try a small concealed area first.
