What a great topic. I need to get after mine this afternoon. I just happen to have some Magic Erasers that I follow my toddler around with!

I've had the magic eraser for a few months waiting to use it. (whites are still clean) but I forgot if I was to use water or a cleaner with it.

I've used white wall tires on my bikes for the last dozen yrs. Cycle clean is the very best I've used. Also get yourself a big brass wheel for your cordless drill. Brass won't harm your chrome.

I had some of this sitting in the garage, so I gave it a try. It worked GREAT! Those white walls shine!

Anyone know if that stuff will hurt chrome? It got all over my rims.

It hasn't hurt my chrome yet. Been using it for almost two years.

Glad we are making good use out of the OP's one and done.
