    So call me a little anal when it comes to keeping my ride clean. I want to keep it looking new for as long as possible. So after giving it a bath yesterday I noticed a bunch of ugly marks I just could not remove with soap and water. Most noticeably were the nasty scratch/scuff marks under the door handles. Even my best car cleaning products could not remove them. So I busted out the Magic Eraser! The results were Magical!

    DISCLAIMER: The packaging clearly says not to use on glossy surfaces and auto body.

    As soft as the Magic Eraser feels it’s actually very abrasiveand can cause fine scratches and dulling. It may not be as noticeable on white paint as it would be a darker color so I strongly recommend you use caution when using this product.

    I use Magic Erasers all of the time on the black plastic parts of the truck - bumpers, mirrors, window trim - its amazing. I got tired of the faded grey look and hated the shiny finish other products would leave. The Magic Erasers get rid of all of the built up gunk on the surface of the plastic and bring it back to almost new.

    No fading...I think the black parts look so much better by just using the erasers. Of course this is all on unpainted plastic, never used it on the painted parts of the body.

    Ever use it on the interior? My door handles and center console being light tan show dirt like crazy and I was wondering if the Magic Eraser would be the perfect tool to use
