If you have tile in your home, chances are that at one point or another it will get dirty. Grout is notoriously hard to clean and can be extremely difficult to keep looking its best, especially if you have stubborn stains. Thankfully, there is a product out there that can help you with this issue — the Magic Eraser. This unique sponge is designed to scrub away major residue, and it can be used on all sorts of different surfaces, including grout. In this article, we will show you how to use the magic eraser on your grout to remove stains and leave it looking like new.
How Does the Magic Eraser Work on Grout?
The Magic Eraser is made out of a special type of foam called melamine resin. It has a soft texture, but it also contains scrubbing microbeads that make it very effective at cleaning. This makes it perfect for scrubbing away the toughest dirt and grime from your grout. It can even help restore old grout to a lighter color if you have had it for a while and it has started to darken.
In addition to being able to clean grout, the Magic Eraser can be used to remove stains from a variety of other surfaces, including white clothing, sneakers, and jewelry. It is a great way to remove hairspray residue, dust, and dirt that has built up on these items. It can also be used to clean burnt-on food from an oven or scuff marks from shoes. Just be sure to test the Magic Eraser on a small area of your surface to make sure it won’t damage it before you start using it on a large area.
It is important to note that the Magic Eraser is abrasive and can cause permanent damage to some surfaces if it is used incorrectly. For example, it can scratch shiny plastics and some paints (such as automotive finishes). It is best to avoid using it on anything that has a high sheen or gloss.
Luckily, there are other ways to clean your grout without having to use the Magic Eraser. One method that works well is to use oxygenated bleach such as OxiClean. This is a safer alternative to traditional bleach, and it can be used on most surfaces. To use it, simply mix three tablespoons of the powdered oxygen bleach with a couple of gallons of warm water and apply it to your grout lines with a scrub brush or a new toothbrush. Let it sit for 15-30 minutes, and then rinse well. Another option is to use a grout brush and a bit of baking soda to scrub your grout. This is an excellent way to get your grout clean and free of stains, and it will not take as long as using the Magic Eraser. Just be sure to test it on a small area of your tile first.
