"Magic Erasers should last between one to then uses. This is quite a range, but depending on what you're using yours for, it will last a different amount of time. There are a few things you could be doing that will degrade your Magic Eraser faster."

"Yes, they are great - just go careful on paintwork, as it can be so goos it also removes the paint! And I generally only use them once, but can cut them up to a smaller size."

"Depends on how heavy handed you are, we have used many and they have generally lasted for one clean only - also depends on what you are wiping away!"

"Hi Julie the magic sponges are quite useful but depending on what kind of stubborn stains you are cleaning and on what type of surfaces the stains are on.
Also they do last after multiple uses too.
