I'm glad you said that! I have black marks on the walls on each side of the stairs from a certain little boy & his friends pushing a rather large dump truck down stairs Saturday night.

Crewsk, they're the most amazing things! Don't use them on wallpaper, but other than that I haven't found anything they don't work on! (If your walls are painted just test in a tiny spot first, but I've never had trouble on any of our paint).

I now buy them in the big boxes at Costco!

I've used them on our walls before but had for some reason forgotten about having them. When we moved in, there was some sort of sticky stuff on the counters, like from stickers of something, nothing would take it off. I finally used a Magic Eraser on it & it took it all off in no time!

I was going to suggest a bleach and water solution as well. I like the idea of the Mr. Clean magic eraser though, never tried it. Wonder if that would work on grass stained white sneakers..hmmmm, have to try that.

Really, PA? We used those things on the exercise equipment at Curves and they were always falling apart.

Depending on what you use them on, some last longer than others. If you use them on a rough material they'll sort of fray or shred, but if you work from one end of the sponge to the other you can get good mileage out of them.

Some plastics are such close cousins to fats chemically that they produce a chemical bond that nothing will break - like white plastics that "stain", and colored "Tupperware" that always looks "greasy" inside no matter how much you scrub them.
