How does the Magic Eraser work?

According to Morgan Brashear, who heads up consumer insights & products research at P&G, the key ingredient in the Magic Eraser (and similar products such as the Easy Erasing Pad) is melamine foam. Although this substance might feel soft in your hand, at the microscopic level, melamine consists of tiny fibers that are almost as hard as glass. Because of their small size, strands of melamine can easily fit into the tiny grooves and pits of just about any surface you want to scour, removing gunk that shouldn’t be there. And because the filaments are so small, they won’t mess with the actual surface you’re trying to clean.

In essence, the Magic Eraser works like extremely fine sandpaper—tough on stains, but gentle on what’s underneath.
