Kudos to Mr. Clean Magic Erasers

I like to share when I find something good, and Mr. Clean Magic Eraser's are excellent! We just cleaned all the scum off the hull around the entire waterline (40' boat, 35' or so waterline) in under 10 minutes with one. We also clean the topsides and cabintop with them, and they get even the most stubborn stains out (including rust marks) in no time at all! Excellent product! For those of you that don't know this product, it looks like a white sponge. As you use it, it disintegrates until you have none left. Then you get another one. And they are pretty inexpensive too.

I'll second that. I have a box of them. One of the spring lines went crazy and rubbed the paint on her name all over the topsides. Took it right off! Scuff marks, dried crispy bird poop, gone too!

I had a dream, I was sailing, I was happy, I was even smiling. Then I looked down and saw that I was on a multi-hull and woke up suddenly in a cold sweat.

Yes, I've been recommending the Mr. Clean Magic Erasers ever since I found out about them when I was cleaning the house and prepping it for sale.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

If you guys have half decent dollar stores check them out for the same thing. Much cheaper and when your doing tons of cleaning, they fall part pretty fast.

Here is what they are made of, if you have a source for buying the stuff by the LB.

Great product - have used it to clean stubborn marks off the boat, but it is indeed abrasive - don't use it on nice, shiny stuff. (Interior gelcoat).

They also clean..

They also clean lifelines and fenders better than any chemical I've ever tried. Do be careful using them on Awlgrip or painted surfaces as they are somewhat abrasive and can dull a shiny finish.
