I hate our shower. I LOVE my house, but I despise the shower in our bathroom. In fact, if I could change only 2 things in our house, the shower would be the second (the first being to install energy efficient windows). We thought the shower might be one of our very favorite things when we moved into the house almost 2 years ago. It's spacious with a nice shower head and plenty of space for all of the various shower products we all need to maintain our beautiful selves. :-) However, this shower drives me crazy. It leaks on one side, has a ridiculous basket installed (that we've tried unsuccessfully to remove) that gets mildew behind it, has glass doors, and itty-bitty, ugly tile. All of these things add up to one ridiculously difficult to clean shower.
Enter Mr. Clean's Magic Eraser. This thing is magnificent. You wet it, squeeze it a couple of times, and wipe grim, soap scum, and mildew away. I'm in love. And while I'm usually pretty concerned about what's in a product and what its environmental impact is, I'm not even going to research this one. At least, not right now. And, if you do, please don't tell me. At least, not right now. Give me a month...or two. Or, heck, just wait until I can afford to replace this shower (which is, most definitely, on our google doc home improvement list) with something more easily cleaned.
Because, for now, this little thing has made our lives so much easier. It wipes the soap scum away with minimal effort and laughs in the face of mildew. I've known its power to remove crayon from walls/tables/easels already, but I'm learning its uses are infinite. I'm trying to limit my use of this unknown substance to the bathrooms and removing crayon, but I make no promises.
