With just a little bit of borrowed elbow grease from Mr. Clean himself, you’ll have a clean garage door in no time!


Garage doors can go through some serious beatings. Soil can build up over time; scratches and dents can appear out of nowhere; and general wear and tear can leave your garage door looking weathered and old. Mr. Clean doesn’t like dirt ruining anything, even your garage door. There are several types of Magic Erasers, but the best way to clean a garage door is with the It was made for tough tasks just like this one. It’s 50 percent stronger than the Magic Eraser Original, so it lasts longer!


To initiate the dirt-fighting power of the Magic Eraser, just add water. Be sure to give it a good squeeze before you start. We wouldn’t want any extra water running down your soon-to-be-sparkling clean garage door.

Now, you can enjoy your newly cleaned garage door and watch the neighbors wonder how you did it.
