Has anyone tried combining the Magic Eraser with other solvents or cleaners? For example, have you tried the Magic Eraser with naptha instead of water? Did you notice less swelling/raising of the grain?

I never have but I fear lighter fluid would melt or deform the eraser. You ever see the old joke by putting the fibre from a cigarette filter in your hand then adding lighter fluid closing your hand and shaking it?

Whew that was a long question. LOL Well it melts it. I suppose one could try a small test area.

Formby makes a build-up remover that I have used before with a paper towel. It works pretty good for lifting chalk out of the grain. The bottle says aliphatic hydrocarbons whatever that is. It's probably just a fancy word for kerosene.

What's a magic eraser?

I have tried isopropyl alcohol on the eraser, and it didn't seem to affect it.

I would assume anything that is not petrolem based would be ok.

Do we have any chemical engineers on the board /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

I have used it once with Q-Clean powder, which I believe is nothing more than powdered chlorine bleach. Dampened the sponge, applied the Q-clean to the sponge and then used it on the shaft. Probably rubbed too hard, as there were significant grooves in the sponge. I don't think it was caused by any chemical reaction, just over-zealousness on my part. Worked well. Didn't notice any significant raising of the grain. Finished it off with the Q-smooth burnishing papers and then an application of Q-Silk. My shafts don't require a whole lot of maintenance (maybe annually - if that) since I wear a glove and use tan chalk.

Hope this Fred's.

Adios,

Are those the guys that are always taking little trips out to the car during a match?

JimS used to work on the railroad. Perhaps he was a chemical engineer.

OK off-topic but it;s kinda funny. My brother and my dad both worked for CSX railroad. There's a spur line that snakes throughout Hamiltucky servicing different factories.

About 25 years ago we went to a carry-out on the west side of town. Out walks my brother carrying a bag of beer. I said "Dude where's your car?" He said 'that's ok I have a ride coming' and a locomotive pulled around the corner and picked him up /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

A few drops of C. W.'s secret shaft cleaning solution on a magic eraser is as good as it gets. I just don't use the magic eraser because its really not needed with the solution.

So has anyone tried Pledge (no wax) on a magic eraser to clean their shaft/cue? Has anyone tried Pledge before? It's amazing.

Not only did she fail to warn us she was taking a picture but she put my secrect shaft cleaning formula up for everyone to see. How am I going to get $25.00 an ounce for it now? Some one with good eyesight will read the lable and find out they can get it at Dollar General for $5.oo per gallon. I guess I'll have to stick to my secret deflection eliminator device which you will see at the next SPetty pool party and product exposition.
