Magic Eraser

The other night (Monday) after reading on RSB about the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, I gave it a try on a shaft. My wife has been using this product for a while (maybe a year or so) and touts all the amazing things that she can clean now with little effort. I must say it did a fantastic job. They are available at Wal-Mart or probably at the local grocery store in a pack of two for under $2.00. Just wet, squeeze the extra water out and then wipe your shaft down and dry it off. Works very well.

My question (the same as the RSB poster) is what ill effects this product might have on a shaft?

Rick <--- knows nothing about cue making or repair.

hustlefinger,

I also recently tried that product and I must say it worked like a charm. I am interested to see if the cuemakers have any input on this.

I haven't heard of it and will not try it. Water on the shaft, is just that, water on and in your shaft. After waiting month's and month's to air dry cut and and treat my shafts, don't think I am going there.Try to keep the moister content down below 6.5 to 7.....Water, no way guys...............

This is a quote from Dana Bufalo of Cue Care products taken from rec.sport billiards. I have not tried magic eraser yet but I trust Dana's input
Be very careful.., This product will clean your shaft but without question,
the Magic Eraser is an abrasive and will "rip" the wood just like
Scotch-Brite will..., Take a GOOD look at your shaft after using this
product and I think you will see what I mean.., I really believe that the
Magic Eraser will harm your shaft ![

He says that because the product works so good, it scares him. I am not surprised he says that. If he had a brain, he would do some research and begin selling it himself under his own name. The material can be gotten for 1/20 of what it sells for once it is cut and packaged. The use of the magic sponge along with his products would be fantastic. You don't need people here to tell you whether to use it or not, do your own research. What a bunch of sheep

Mr. Macguy
Very interesting observation. Do you know Dana. I have known him for years, he's always willing to learn new things and I don't think I have ever heard him say any thing bad about any one. He is almost to nice, maybe that's his catch. I do plan on trying this product. If you believe in this product so much maybe you should give your name and location. I for one would atleast respect your opinions a little more.

You said in your post you had not tried it. You need to try it before condemning it and if you don't like then it just becomes your opinion, but at least it would be based on some first hand knowledge. One of the reasons I said about the other guy what I did was. His condemnation of the product was such that you could see he had an agenda. I was not kidding, the product works so well all other cleaning products become unneeded. But it could be used in conjunction with other cleaners on the market and get maybe even better results then either independently. Either way, It has been sold for some time under different names for much more them the Mr. Clean brand. I am not in the business but can't imagine why someone would not want to add it to their line under their own name, especially since it has such a high profit margin. Very few people in general read these boards, most would buy it not even knowing the Mr. Clean brand exists, they would think it was developed for cues. Most of the cleaners on the market are just common products like Soft Scrub repackaged. Cue silk is a hair care product you can buy most anywhere for about a 1/20 th. of the price.
