JML Doktor Power Magic Eraser
Advantages: None for me
Disadvantages: It broke up easily and didnt clean very well
After listening to my friend telling me how good the Doktor Power Magic Eraser is I decided I was definitely missing out on something good and made my mind up to buy one. I popped to a local Asda that had recently opened in my area and they were selling them for £5.00. I thought it was a bit expensive for a piece of foam but bought one all the same.
The Magic Eraser is packaged in a cardboard box which is mainly green pink and silver. The front of the box shows a picture of the magic eraser which basically is just a piece of white foam, the front of the box informs the customer that this is the New Doktor Power Magic Eraser and it will remove " stubborn marks and stains just like magic" all you have to do is simply add water, there is no need for detergents.
The back of the box gives the instructions for use and states the sort of things that the magic eraser will clean. All of this information is repeated on the sides of the box in pictures. The box states the foam will clean taps, tiles, baths, sinks, pots, pans, floors, walls, trainers, shoes, oven and much more.
The box also gives some warnings which are in keeping with a cleaning product. These are all clearly written for those who wish to read them.
The back of the box describes the magic eraser as "unique abrasive foam" however when I opened the box and got the foam out I was surprised to find its actually very soft. It looks just like a block of ordinary white foam, there's no coarseness to it at all. The magic eraser measures approximately 30.5 x 11.5 cm's and is 4cm's deep.
To use the foam is simple, first you need to cut it to whatever size you prefer, this may depend on what you are cleaning but really its just whatever size you prefer. To cut the sponge is really easy, a knife or scissors will slice through it with ease. Once you have your piece of foam all you need to do is rinse it under the tap.
I cut a piece of the foam off to use, ran it under water and set about cleaning my oven door. which was badly splashed and had been since I had moved into the house. After several minuets rubbing away with the foam the door looked pretty much the same as it always had and the foam was starting to break up. I moved onto the bathroom and thought maybe the magic eraser would brighten up the grout behind the taps on my bath. Once again the magic eraser failed to clean and developed another hole. I found this to be the case after everything I tried to clean.
I have tried using this all around the house and the only success I have had has been on scuff marks on the door and skirting. To say I was disappointed was an understatement. Although the foam can be rinsed and reused I have found in most cases it is so flimsy it breaks while using it so there's very little to reuse.
All in all the Magic Eraser definitely did not live up to expectations, I like the idea of a product that requires no detergent and is re usable but in my experience this certainly doesn't fit the bill. I had little or no success with it and definitely wouldn't recommend it to anyone. It was a waste of £5.00.
Summary: A waste of money
