I was lurking in the other playrooms and came across this. I love using the magic eraser and while I wouldn't let Betsy touch one (and they're always locked up in our secure cabinet with the other cleaning supplies), I had no idea that they could do so much harm.

wow. Yep... some of our cleaning supplies are not safe at all. I have never used the Magic Eraser, I've often wondered about it, but I guess I'm not too curious any more.

Poor girl. I'd hate to see if any other LO's got chemical burns from this.

Wow, I never would have imagined it can cause chemical burns, bc like the OP said you use your bare hands to clean with it. How odd! Thanks for re-posting!

i love the magic eraser - and i've heard of burns from it before with kiddo's. Such a good reminder that it is still a cleaning product with chemicals - and kiddo's have such sensitive skin. Poor girl I keep all of our cleaning stuff out of kiddo's reach (In the garage in a upper cabinet)

Thanks for posting, Amy. We just got one of these-and they are truly amazing-in fact, too good to NOT be dangerous! Sad to say that.

I am just amazed that the packaging does not mention such an important safety aspect.

I know -- you forget that it isn't "just" a sponge. I'm glad the ladies in the other playroom posted this as well.

I've heard of it causing chemical burns, too. It's great for getting crayon or pen off the wall, though. Permanent markers, not so much. I generally don't keep it in the house. Just pick it up when I need to.
