It was my own fault, I somehow managed to transfer a tiny lipstick smudge from my finger to the wall above the mirror. But now it has completely gone. Look at the genuine ‘before’ and ‘after’ shots
I removed the mark with one of my trusty ‘magic eraser’ sponges
I have a reason for doing this
The sponges need to be moistened with water [no chemicals] and then gently rubbed over offending marks.As it removes the mark, the surface of the sponge itself wears away. By cutting each into 6, I am vastly increasing the surface area.
When these ‘magic’ sponges first came out, about 10 years ago, introduced by Proctor and Gamble under their “Mr Clean” label, I was quite suspicious, as they were so expensive. But these Aldi ones work just as well. The technology behind them is fascinating – they are melamine foam, and it was being used as cushioning in aeroplane seats. I cannot fathom how someone found out that making this foam wet turned it into a brilliant mark remover. But it was a great discovery.
Someone [a rival company?] started a rumour that the original P&G ones contained harmful chemicals, so the company had to issue a statement declaring that to be untrue. I think they are truly wonderful – and have been using them [the cheap ones!] for years, to clean up my act!
