    A while back someone mentioned using a Mr Clean (?) Magic Eraser to wash/wax the TV. This post was read between 4:30 AM and 5:30 AM so the coffee had not kicked in. Would the person who used that system please elaborate.

    Thanks

    I would be interested just for the knowledge. On the surface it seems like a bad idea. I'm not sure what is in the Magic Eraser but it does work well.
    A good clay bar, some quick detail spray and then a good wax shouldn't take more than an hour.

    Here is a good video. Seems like if used appropriately it could be a good tool in the vehicle cleaning kit.

    Just FYI: Magic Eraser is just a type of sand paper.

    [:O]:shocked:[:O]:shocked: Oh no! I use it on everything! I was even excited to see new Magic Eraser sheets advertised. Not sure I want deteriorating everything I use it on. It works really good ... even the generic Dollar Tree ones.

    Magic Eraser is melamine foam, so yes, an abrasive, but not as abrasive as what we commonly think of as sandpaper. I have that down in size to rouge cloth, which seems more abrasive than the eraser; I use the rouge cloth on glass chips and for things such as burrs on my sewing awls.
    I use care with the Magic eraser, it's the only things I've found that works on the textured handle on the home fridge.
