If you love a Magic Eraser, but do not love the cost. You can try to make your own. Clean just about everything off your walls, floors and other surfaces.
How to Make Your Own Magic Erasers!
For those of you who have purchased and used Magic Erasers, you know that they really are magic. If you have kids, pets and husbands you know that it is pretty easy to go from a clean house to a messy own in less than 5 minutes. You can get unwanted dirty finger prints on your walls, cabinets and doors. Often times these little non adorable fingers prints JUST won’t budge with soap and water.
Magic erasers are little miracle works, but at close to $5 for a two pack when not on sale seems extremely pricing. But, did you know you can make your own version at home? A homemade magic eraser! A much cheaper version and works just as well.
Make Your Own Magic Erasers – Save Money
Did you know that magic erasers are made from a product called melamine foam? Did you also know that you can just BUY melamine foam? YES, you can. Skip the brand name product and just purchase your our melamine foam. I actually use this version all the time and for the value and price you can’t beat it.
If there’s ever a shortage of Magic Erasers, though, you’ll at least know how to come up with a replacement!
You can buy your own Melamine foam right here on Amazon. I always find that Amazon is the best pricing. If you don’t have the money to spend on these foam substitutes you can always choose to make a Homemade Magic Eraser Recipe Mix.
Homemade Magic Eraser Recipe Mix
This is a soft wash mixtures that will help with your home cleaning. If I do not have any melamine foam sponges I use this as a replacement. I use a regular kitchen scrub to do the heavy work.
Mix together 1/2 teaspoon of Borax with 1 teaspoon of baking soda in a small bowl. Add about 1/2 cup of hot water. Dip your sponge and use this to get this tougher marks and stains off your walls and floors. If your walls are painted, you may want to test this application in an inconspicuous spot before using all over.
