I bought these Magic Eraser sheets and found different uses for table tennis. They are thin, flexible, soft and are made of melamine foam (an organic base in the form of white crystals and there are no harsh chemicals added). They are more dense than average cleaning sponges and its tiny pores (micro scrubbers) give them a higher level of friction. You can use it to scrub off sticky dirt and scum from all kinds of surfaces.

It's a 3 in 1.

1-Remove white powder on new balls


To remove white powder on new balls: wet a Magic Eraser sheet with water and squeeze. Then rub the balls on it and let dry. The results are: no more white powder spots on rubbers and no more white powder accumulated in robots.


2-Clean old rubbers

To clean old rubbers: wet a Magic Eraser sheet with water and squeeze. Then rub it on your old rubbers. It’s removing all the accumulated dust and grease.


3-Spread glue


To spread the glue on the sponge and the blade: cut one Magic Eraser sheet in 12 pieces (1 X 1.75 in). Fold it in half and hold it with a paper clip. It’s easy to spread the glue evenly because it’s soft and flexible.


Each sheet is 5.8 X 3.5 X .03 in and available in 8 or 16 sheets.

Available at Home Depot, Walmart, etc. ($3.00 for 8 sheets)

Magic Eraser is an abrasive. Think of it as a fine plastic sandpaper. While it may work great for cleaning ball dust, I'd hesitate to use it on rubbers like tacky Chinese rubbers since it could change it's tackiness by abrading the top layer. Dust and grease can be cleaned simply by using a drop of clear liquid soap and wiping with wet sponge, rinsing the sponge with water and repeating and dried with a microfiber covered sponge or similar.

I would also not use it to spread glue as it's probably more economical to get foam sponge from the upholstery section and cut it into strips then smaller pieces or using a reusable silicone brush.
