I'm still waiting for the car wash thingie but I did receive a free sample of the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser (www.homemadesimple.com/mrclean/eraser_useage.shtml) It's a white dense foam pad that you soak in water, wring out, and "erase" dirt and grime from walls, tiles, etc.

I tried the CD test and it scratched a bit and they do say it's not for use on polished or satin surfaces. They also warn you to try it in inconspicuous places to check for scratching.

I wet it down with Z7 and used it VERY GENTLY on:
- 1/2 my windshield: It cleaned away spots and bug juice effortlessly. The 1/2 I used it on is noticeably clearer and dried without any water spots.
- a chrome rim that had some paint overspray: Took the overspray off after multiple passes when a clay bar could not. It did not scratch the chrome at all.
- Polished aluminum exhaust tips: They are so shiny now I need sunglasses!
- Plastic headlight covers: here I was a bit nervous but it did an excellent job.
- A 1951 license plate that I'm sure hasn't been cleaned since 1952: it cleaned it right up, took off every bit of grime and antique dirt.

Basically it's like a clay bar but more aggressive. I can see using this on all parts of your car that are not sensitive to scratching such as painted surfaces. I'd say it if you use clay on areas other than paintwork such as glass this product will do a better job.

All in all this will make a good addition to your detailing kit. I think they are in the supermarkets now and I'm definitely buying some this weekend.

When did you recieve your sample? I put in a request also, but I haven't heard anything.

Anyway, thanks for the review, it is pretty amazing that the thing works! I remember from the original topic linking to the free sample, people sarcastically wondered what it could be used on...they came up with using it on fruit. :)
Thanks again,
Kev
Yes, it floats my boat.

I want to use it on my kitty. :o

I really honestly don't know what I'd use it on.

I also requested the free sample but I was in Target the other day and bought a 4 pack. I tried it around the house, cleaning tiles, bathroom faucets, and to remove an ink mark on a leather sofa. It works pretty well. I'm not sure where I would use it on my car though, yet.......:D

Can't use it on polished surfaces, can't use it on satin surfaces...

Where exactly do they expect you to use it, on your hair?? :P


They might as well put "Not for use on surfaces" on the label.

If you read my original post you'll see I used it on glass, exhaust, even my headlights with excellent results. I think there are many uses... engine, engine bay, headers, exhaust system, suspension components, wheel wells, etc.

Today I replaced my rear shocks so while the wheels were off I used it on the brake calipers and repainted them, cleaned the inside of my rims, my rear suspension, and the wheel wells. Everything came out sparkling.

I tried using it on my hair but it hurt too much :rolleyes:

I'M not saying you can't use it on those things. It's THEIR advertising that says not to use it on polished or matte surfaces. Talk about Niche Marketing.

I think they're just covering their asses so if anyone does any damage they can say "we told you not to do that".
