Cons:Contains Chemicals and can burn your skin off
The Bottom Line: I do not believe anyone should buy a product from Proctor and Gamble that warns half truths and whole lies!!!!
Anyone that has used a Magic Eraser knows you can use it on almost anything and while thats true it can also burn the skin right off your body!!! It warns on the package it can cause abrasions on skins( I assumed from hard sponge scrubbing) so when my son had ink all over him i VERY LIGHTLY wiped it twice across his arm. Within moments it turned a little red so I immediately stopped. It caused a red mark and very light abrasion. It wasn't bad fairly minor but I put a band aid on it to protect it and 3 days later when I took it off layers of his skin were gone!!!!! This morning when he woke up there was blood running down his arm. I took him to Doctor and she said it looked like a CHEMICAL BURN. But then said "well it would be a chemical burn but since Magic Erasers contain no chemicals its an abrasion" She was going solely on what Mr Clean advertises for the eraser. I called poision control and it DOES CONTAIN FORMALDEHYDE and other chemical agents. I was told when formaldehyde is in contact with skin it can cause red irritation and dermatitis becoming very infected which is what happened to my poor son!! He is on steriods and antibiotics. Proctor and Gamble lies and candy coats their warning label!!!!
