    Do you speak from experience? I recently cleaned our kitchen from top to bottom as a surprise for my wife. Used up 5 or 6 magic erasers on the woodwork and cabinets - didn't wear gloves or anything and certainly I wasn't burned in any way. I'm not even sure that they're chemical based - they seem to have a texture that creates a lot of surface friction to remove dirt and grime.

    Have you tried SoftScrub?

    My only anxiety about either one would be residual traces getting into my photo chemistry.

    Hmm - I think you may have felt simple abrasion. According to the Wikipedia and other sources I just found on the internet, magic erasers do not cause chemical burns.

    From my reading, it looks to me like magic erasers don't have any chemicals in them at all - they work via abrasion like sandpaper.

    Perhaps as well or better off using Bon Ami. Using
    a one inch 99 cent brush and a very thin paste of
    Bon Ami my glass of glass negative carrier is now
    clean. A brush and thin paste may do my one
    stained tray. Dan

    Sounds good for a tray - but I'm not sure how well that would work for cleaning an entire room - that's what I've used magic erasers for

    Check this Mr Clean web site out and it gives a lot of info on the product. It is not to be used on some finishes or in conjunction with chlorine bleach.

    I didn't see anything on this site about bleach or finishes - are you referring to info from some other site?

    If interested in the UK, the Mr Clean brand Magic Eraser does not appear to be readily available but what I assume is the same product under a different brand is JML Magic Eraser which I obtained from a local Robert Dyas shop (apparently also available in Woollies and Wilkingsons shops).

    Can't say I had as much success on my developer tray as the OP but it did take about 75% of the stubborn stains out (I always give a good rinse after use so any stains are well embedded in the plastic by now). Did about the same to a tray used for blue toning.

    On the pack it says not to be used with bleach or other cleaners, or on black or high gloss surfaces; presumably the latter because of its abrasive nature.

    Cheers, Bob.
