While in the shop this afternoon, I was making out a materials list and I couldn’t find my paper pad so I grabbed what I thought was a scrap piece of wood however it was an important part of my drill press table project. I was about to grab a sanding block but my wife (the wise one of the family) suggested I try something she uses around the hose for cleaning. It’s called “Miracle Eraser”. It worked great without elbow grease or sandpaper it completely removed all of my scribbling and didn’t raise the grain of the wood. It’ like a little sponge and it’s cleanable and lasts a long time.

Jim I’ll let you know tomorrow once I apply some linseed oil. According to the package it doesnt leave any residue. I didn’t think of lacquer thinner.

While I haven’t used it to remove pencil marks from my work (yet), it works wonders to get pen, pencil, marker, crayon, and whatever else is on the furniture in my house without doing any damage to the finish that I can tell. Although most of what I have is either finished with poly or just hasn’t had finish applied yet.

magiceraser is a micro sanding block, which sands off the top layer of whatever it is that you’re cleaning (very fine grit). works great! also on drywall (As long as it’s not painted in anything other than white) to clean off marks and scratches.
