Helpful tools and gadgets have become indispensable in the household. Whether a window vacuum, a wiping robot or even a dirt eraser: These tools make cleaning easier. Here we will tell you what dirt erasers are suitable for and what you should consider when using them.
A dirt eraser is an open-pored sponge. It usually consists of melamine resin. This is foamed and brought into the form of a sponge, similar to a large eraser. If you use it and walk over surfaces with it, it gradually rubs off - just like an eraser. The falling resin particles can be wiped up with a damp cloth and disposed of.
The dirt eraser works without any harmful ingredients. Before you use it, you should moisten it with clear water. Then you can use it like a sponge that just rubs off with use. With the little all-rounder you can basically go over all surfaces that you want to clean. It is best if they are hard and not too sensitive. The practical household helper is particularly suitable for the following types of soiling.
Especially in the kitchen, you should make sure that the falling resin particles can be completely removed. Scrub the oven with a dirt eraser if that works. However, this is not guaranteed with a cutting board with many notches and grooves. The abrasion can possibly settle there and possibly get to the food. It is best to avoid this.
You should also be careful on softer surfaces such as a sofa or carpet. The miracle sponge is not as effective here and can also rub off the paint - this also applies to colored walls or colorful wallpaper. In addition, soft surfaces can be roughened by using the household helper. Also be careful with painted surfaces: these can become dull if treated with a dirt eraser. If the sponge soaks up water, it almost looks like sandpaper. In the case of sensitive surfaces, it is better to test one spot before removing the stain.
