For clean freaks.....

I just discovered the world's greatest product. At first I thought the use of the word "magic" in the title was just a marketing gimmick BUT...

So 4 bikes in a small aprtment with white walls leads to lots of scuffs, tire marks etc. I have tried bleach, 409 etc and I gave up. Then I got these Mr Clean Magic Erasers and everything came off in 5 minutes. granted you have to go through a couple boxes of these, but they really work. If I was a famous person I would endore it on tv, but I am not so I am endorsing them here.

Anyways... most fixie riders in cities work on their bikes inside their apartments so I thought this would be a good tip.

now back to some leftover pie....

MY GOD DO THEY! I love Magic Erasers. they work so well, I swear by them. My Landlord got my walls painted and claimed it was because of all of the tire marks all over the wall.. which there was alot of. But anyway, the night before the guys came to paint I magic erasered all of the marks off in a few minutes. I love those things. they're the best. I'm overy enthusiastic about them.

Tire scuff marks on walls are really far down on the cleaning list, but it's good to know. I've got a whole bunch of stuff to get cleaned before I can even get to some of the walls...

I know a couple of kids who use Mr. Clean Erasers to clean their white leather shoes. The type of shoe which is popular with the, for lack of a better, more PC term, "thug kids".

I actually used one to clean the bike I just got and even though I had allready cleaned it off with a damp rag, not until I used The magic eraser did I realize the paint was pearl, not white.
