Discover All The Possibilities With Magic Eraser!

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with KGC Properties LLC, Tucson Property Management & Real Estate

This post is my very first entry in an Active Rain contest!  The contest is by Charles Buell, called "Proof that I can blog about anything!"   The basic idea of the contest is to provide an opportunity for all active rain bloggers to stretch themselves----to step "outside-the-box" a bit----and realize that there is stuff to blog about everywhere one looks ----even under the kitchen sink.

I looked under my kitchen sink.  "Ugh. Am I a clean freak?", I wondered as I looked through all the stuff. So, I started throwing things out and stopped when I came to one product I couldn't do without.

Next to soap and water, the only other thing that I think any home needs to keep it close to being perfectly clean, or looking clean, is the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser.

This magic sponge can fix almost any oops, mark, scuff, dirt, even soap scum by just adding water and rubbing on your "scuff or dirt mark" that you think prevents your house from looking perfect!  It even cleans tile floors!

This should be the #1 item given to all Sellers who say, "I cleaned - really. I know it doesn't look like it. But I did." Here you are M/M Seller - a little time with this magic bar and your baseboards, appliances, window sills, showers, tubs and more can all look like Mrs. Clean spent days scrubbing and polishing!

But the real magic I would like to see is a Magic Eraser just for Buyers.  Especially for the Buyer who found the perfect house except:

  • It has a pool
  • That room is in the wrong place
  • I wish the neighbor didn't have such an ugly fence that I'd have to look at.
  • That tower interrupts the mountain view.
  • I'd rather not have a 3-car garage.
  • I can't live with the tile and it'll cost too much to remove it...

... and other things we've all heard Buyer's who say, "if only".  Here you are M/M Buyer - a Magic Eraser! Simply erase what you don't like and you will have the perfect home of your dreams!

Back to reality, the point of all this is, no one can erase features of a home to make it just what they are looking for.  And no Seller will have a showroom, 100% clean, perfect home. 

Throw out things that aren't critical and find one main thing (or a couple things) that will be just what you need to make your perfect home. And like magic, you will soon see the true feature that makes any home perfect -

is bringing happiness into it.

I LOVE Magic Eraser.  Two dogs and a five year old.....Enough said.  I carry one with me in my real estate tool bag as well, just in case a client or their children scuff up a wall.

I may have to throw a magic eraser in my purse the next time I am showing property and borrow your " no one can erase features of a home to make it just what they are looking for" line! LOL

Gabrielle - very nicely done! I like you love my Magic Eraser - I use it everywhere in my house and now they have those special ones for the bathroom - my family thinks I have some sort of addiction to these things. Love the message and how you tied it altogether and yes, I know you can blog about anything - the proof is throughout your blog! ~Anne Marie

Gabrielle:  We have a couple of boxes of Magic Erasers in the house.  Are they not fantastic?  There are some things you cannot do without.  From the picture of those beautiful little girls, I would say that yellow would be your colour.

Gabrielle, a magic erasers just for buyers would definitely come in handy on occasion :)  I think most if not all of mine have said at least once "if only" that flaw or unfixable feature didn't exist...
