They can replace several cleaning products in your home and the best part? There’s super cheap and only need water to work.

What are we talking about? Melamine magic erasers of course!

Melamine sponges are made of melamine foam, which is made up of formaldehyde-melamine-sodium bisulfite copolymer. Basically, this means that while the sponges feel like normal sponges, they are actually like an ultra-fine sandpaper, getting into tiny grooves of the object you’re cleaning. They aren’t harsh either, and replace sprays, tonics, toxic cleaners and a host of other chemical cleaners.
