I have a red ( I think the official color name was paprika) recliner that I love. It was starting to look at little dirty, especially where I put my feet on the footrest. I decided this weekend that it was time to clean it.
I started with my steamer. It took some visible dirt off, but it quickly became obvious that it wasn’t going to look anywhere near new. Then I had a brilliant thought. I had a brand new Mr. Clean Magic Eraser that I got from the sample machine at Sams Club. Would it work? I dampened it and went to work on the footrest, figuring that it wouldn’t show too much if it did anything bad to the microfiber fabric. I couldn’t believe the dirt that came up with one swipe. It was one of those things that was fascinating in a yucky way. I cleaned what I could, then let it dry for a while and did it again. It did an amazing job!
Wouldn’t it be great if there were a Magic Eraser for words that I wish I hadn’t said or for mistakes I made? If it just soaked stuff up so I could rinse it away. Now that would be a worthwhile invention.
