Eraser With Ingredients You Already Have
The official Magic Eraser can easily get scuff marks off many surfaces, but they disintegrate fast and are pricey at about $1 each. That’s where this DIY comes in.
Buy melamine sponges and add a cleaning solution
or simply add water, depending on your needs. This DIY product works so well due to the abrasiveness of the melamine foam.
For the solution, get borax, baking soda, a bowl, warm water, and gloves. For each sponge, mix 1 teaspoon of borax and 1 tablespoon of baking soda into ½ a cup of warm water.
Soak the sponge long enough for it to absorb the mixture, then wring it out and use it. Or, put the mixture in a spray bottle and spritz it on a pre-moistened melamine sponge.
