Behind the toilet, under appliances, and high-traffic areas by doors and entrances – all these floor areas can prove tough to clean because they are difficult to access or get very dirty due to their location. Here are the cleaning tools we recommend to do the job.
Caution: Before using an eraser sponge to clean your floor, test it on an inconspicuous area to see if it damages or alters the finish. Make sure the area is completely dry before deciding to apply it to the entire floor area. Eraser sponges are not recommended for the following floor types: natural stone, painted surfaces, or finished wood surfaces.

It’s important to give the exterior of your home and outdoor entertainment spaces a good once-over when the summer starts. Here are the areas you should pay attention to:
Household Vinyl Siding: Use an eraser sponge to remove mold, mildew, dirt, and grime. If you have a large area to clean, our Super S Eraser Sponges (12 Pack) will help shorten your cleaning time due to the their large size.

Make cleaning kitchens and bathrooms easier with these tips used by professional cleaners.
Start from the Top and Work to the Bottom
That means start with dusting high areas like the tops of cupboards or kitchen cabinets or the bathroom vanity. Use a microfiber duster to trap dirt and dust and not just knock it to the ground, or on to lower counter tops or shelves.
Keeping your dishwasher clean will not only will help it look and smell better, but it will help it to perform better and possibly extend the life of the appliance. Use eraser sponges to clean the plastic items inside your dishwasher without any added detergent or dish soap.
Cleaning the Inside of the Dishwasher’s Tub with Eraser Sponges
Use a paper towels to remove any large food debris from the bottom of the tub. Next, you will want to loosen any grime or leftover food. While your dishwasher is empty, place a cup of vinegar on the top rack,. Sprinkle baking soda on the bottom of your dishwasher and then choose the cleaning cycle or a hot-water cleaning cycle. The vinegar and baking soda will help clean the dishwasher and remove any bad odors.
Some blogs suggest cleaning the inside of your dishwasher with bleach. However, if your dishwasher is stainless steel on the inside, this could corrode and ruin the finish of the dishwasher. Instead use an approved commercial dishwasher cleaner or the baking soda and vinegar method.
Next, check to see if your dishwasher has a removable filer that needs to be cleaned. The filter traps larger food particles to prevent the dishwasher’s water pump from becoming clogged. This can also be a source of bad smells if it has not been cleaned in a while. Remove the filter and wash it using warm soapy water. Use a soft sponge to wipe off any stuck-on food particles, or small stickers. An eraser sponge, like our large erasers sponges, can be used to remove grime on any plastic parts of the filter. Return the filter back to its housing before running your next dishwasher load.
Removing Stains and Smells From Inside the Dishwasher Tub
After the cycle is complete and your dishwasher is cool, use an eraser sponge to remove any grime from plastic racks, utensil baskets and wash arms.
The detergent dispenser can become encrusted with old soap which can prevent it from opening during the wash cycle. Remove any excess detergent from around and inside the plastic dispenser using an eraser sponge. Test the lid of the dispenser to make sure it shuts properly.
Check the lower dishwasher spray arms to make sure the holes are free and clear of any blockages, like food particles. During your dishwasher’s wash cycle, water and detergent spray through these holes to clean your dishes, so clogged spray arms might be preventing your dishwasher from properly cleaning your dishes.
Clean the Gasket Seal Around the Dishwasher Tub. The plastic or rubber-like seal around a dishwasher tub opening helps to secure the door and prevent any water leakage. Over time, the seal can become encrusted with dirt and grim made up from food particles, soap and dirt, leading to unpleasant smells. Use an eraser sponge, or just a wet sponge with dishwashing soap to remove any dirt, grime or food particles from the seal. Be sure to dry it using a microfiber cloth or towel.
Polish a Dishwasher Door Using This Cleaning Trick!
You can polish and clean the inside and outside of Stainless Steel Appliances using microfiber cloths. To give your stainless steel appliance door a nice shine on the outside, use a drop of olive oil and rub it in using a microfiber cloth.
We love our furry family members. Our pets become a part of our household and family routines. We want them to be comfortable and have fun; but sometimes that means having a mess to clean up on a daily basis. Our pet’s activities can cause scuffs on the floors, and marks on our walls, cabinets, and doors. Dogs and cats often make a mess around their food and water bowls, like toddlers at the dinner table.
Eraser Sponges Help Clean Your Home’s Messes
As pet owners, we don’t always have time to grab a bucket, fill it with water, and wet a mop, to wipe up floors; or time to get down on our knees with a bucket full of water and a sponge to clean up scuffed cabinet doors.
The eraser sponge makes it easy to clean up spills, scuffs, and dirty paw prints in a snap. Another great thing about using an eraser sponge to clean up after your pets is that it is simple enough for your kids to use as well. It is much simpler and much less messy to teach your little ones how to help you tidy up after pets by using the eraser sponge.
Giving a small child a mop and bucket of water, can create even more of a mess that the one you were attempting to clean. Keep eraser sponges handy, and have your kids watch you clean up scuffs and marks left by your pets; then engage them in the activity with you.
After going through this process, your kids will automatically reach for an eraser sponge when your dog comes in from playing outside.

Cleaning the bathroom can be quite the chore and one that might have to be done weekly, depending on how many people live in your home. With all the nooks and crannies, tile grout, and scuff marks, it can be a real pain to clean every area. Fortunately, many of the areas can be cleaned without chemicals using an eraser sponge.
Before you start cleaning
Wear latex or vinyl gloves. Wearing rubber gloves will protect your hands and keep the skin from becoming too dry, even if you are just cleaning with water and an eraser sponge. Plus, you will be less squeamish when it comes to tackling dirty and unpleasant areas.
De-clutter Counters and Tubs. Clear the bathroom of laundry, wet towels, toys, shampoo bottles and other items to expose all surfaces that require cleaning.
Begin with the tub and shower area. If you have a separate shower stall, grab your eraser sponge and wet it with water. Gently scrub tile walls to remove any soap scum, soap residue or water stains. Clean the shower floor last so that you are not walking over it as you clean the rest of the shower area. Run the shower at the very end to rinse away any remaining dirt or debris.
If you have a tub with a shower, clean the wall tiles first with the eraser sponge, then the tub basin and finish using the shower sprayer to rinse the area thoroughly.
Sink and counters. Work top to bottom, left to right, to remove any soap scum, dirt, water stains and leftover tooth paste from the sink and counters. Run the faucet to rinse clean.
Toilet. You may want to use a new eraser sponge on the toilet to prevent any cross contamination issues. Use a sponge on the porcelain part of the toilet, tank, handle, seat and lid. Don’t forget to get behind the seat as well. Dispose of the sponge after use.
Some blogs and social media posts wrongly suggest dropping an eraser sponge into the toilet and letting it sit. Since most eraser sponges do not contain additional cleaning agents, this will not accomplish anything other than having to fish out a wet sponge from the toilet bowl. The cleaning power is the gentle scrubbing used to remove, dust, grime, soap scum, hard water stains, mold and scuff marks.
Clean the floors last
Use one of our eraser sponge mop heads to clean dirty grout tile lines on floor tiles. The replacement mop head attach to the head of a mop handle (sold separately) via Velcro. Wet the sponge first or use a spray bottle to wet the floor area before using the sponge to scrub back and forth. Rinse your sponge in a bucket and squeeze out dirty water to get a clean, reusable mop head sponge. Let it air dry and reuse again and again.
