yet another use for magic erasers!
|i just had to post this before i forgot (again!). i know i told you all a while ago how amazed i was with the magic eraser. it cleans sharpie off of the floor. scuffs, scuzz, dye, it cleans everything. it seriously does, and without any additional cleaner added. really good. hard water stains? gone. hard water deposits on the shower head? gone. this thing is crazy. anyway, i went on wiki to see how it worked and basically it is an abrasive, but it is so fine that it doesn't scratch anything. it is really an odd thing. anyway, i read an article about some woman that claimed that she wiped off her little kid's face with it and it caused abrasions. it is possible, but unless she was really scrubbing, it seems unlikely. however, it gave me an idea. as you know, i walk barefoot as much as possible. my feet are all calloused and beat up due to this. on the upside, i can walk on hot cement and sharp stones, on the downside, my feet look beat up. i hate using the foot pumicey things and other things that don't work that well. i decided that i would put some soap on the magic eraser and try it on the really thick callouses on my sole. it worked super duper well. i think i am going to market the magic callous eraser! you know how those gross foot files take chunks out of your skin? this just smooths it out. if you scrubbed at normal skin, you would end up really sore, but on super rough skin, it works awesome. you can even hit some of the rough areas that are not super rough and it works there, too. elbows, etc. you just have to take it really easy, a few gently swipes, maybe. so. and if you do this and get hurt, it isn't my fault. i imagine that the manufacturers would tell you not to do it...or they would steal my idea. who knows?|
