Soap Scum Miracle !

,havin scrubbingYou probably will not relate to this post.

You probably have a spotless house.

Spotless bathrooms.

Spotless kids.

And change your sheets every two weeks.

Which is why I am using the beach house tubs for an example here.

So you won’t “hate” on me.

I mean, my house is spotless.

And my kids are perfect.


Anyways…..this is not an ad. The Magic Eraser people do NOT have a clue who I am but I had to share this.

We battle soap scum at the beach house.

The tubs have the little grooves that pick up everything!

Suntan oil and dirty feet equals gross tubs, every.single.week. 5 bathtubs and tons of chemicals….and I was not happy with our bathtubs.

I have used the best soap scum removers but they just weren’t looking good.

I thought maybe the tubs were just getting worn out……….

And then I found this.

The BATH SCRUBBER Magic Eraser.

I thought what the heck….and gave it a shot.

I adjusted the lighting on this shot……they weren’t this grody.

They were close.


They were disgusting.

No lie…….20 minutes later and five tubs easily wiped down. Top to bottom.

Literally like


No heavy chemicals.

No scrubbing each tub after soaking in Mr Clean Soap Scum remover and waiting…..

I just wiped each tub with a dampened, BATH SCRUBBER, Magic Eraser and WAH LAH!……

One more reason that I want to marry the Magic Eraser.

I love this thing.

Little tidbit for ya’.

What makes the magic eraser work? 
Magic Eraser is a cleaning stick made of melamine foam. Melamine is a resin used in construction and the automotive industry as a sound barrier and flame retardant. It also imparts strength and is used in such products as dinnerware and laminate countertops.
The eraser is moistened with water so it adheres slightly to the surface to be cleaned. (Mr.Clean likens this to licking your finger when you turn a page.) Then it is rubbed over the spot or stain. The water breaks down the product into a microscopic polymer abrasive that grabs dirts in the spaces that a regular sponge or brush can’t get to.

So…are you running scared?
Do you even know what soap scum is or did you just think people on the “other side of the tracks” battled it?
Do you use soap?
Then…you probably have soap scum.
But your kids may still be perfect and your house spotless.
I won’t judge.
So, what do you think?
Are there any scummy readers?
Can anyone relate??
I would love to know…….

    Totally going to try this the next time I pick up cleaning supplies. You rock!

    And, you know, since my house is so perfectly clean and all, I am in no hurry to purchase said cleaning supplies… 😉

    you know you can buy melamine foam on Amazon, Ebay and other sites a whole lot cheaper than Mr. Clean Magic. And just as good. Never tried the bathroom scrubbers type, but love the others. Used to use them when I worked with pre-k to scrub everything in the classroom at the end of the year.

    Does it work on acrylic tubs or will it scratch them?? If it wipes rust stains away I’m so in!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Norwex (environmentally friendly products)makes a ‘hand sponge’ that they say is less toxic and I know it works as well as this.

    I’ve been using Mr. Clean sponges for a long time to get rid of soap scum (and lot’s of other stuff too!). Works great for removing scum from glass shower doors too.

    I tried Mr. Clean sponges when they first came out. I don’t know what the big deal is….they sure never worked for me. Maybe I am missing something. Ajax is my favorite. It is non scratching and has chlorine bleach to get out stains.

    I haven’t tried these but on your recommendation will give it a shot with our shower tub 🙂
