Did you know that I used to be an art teacher? Yep, before I chose to stay home and raise my littles I taught K-6 art and was given a box of Mr. Clean Magic Erasers after an orientation one day. The instructor who had trained me for a particular course I would be teaching, which involved permanent markers, told me they “would remove marker from ANY surface!” I decided to try it and yep, she was right! It came right off of the school desk tops, shoes from doodling kids, and even off of a backpack! From then on I stocked them in my tote while traveling to different schools throughout the district and now, as a mom of littles, have them fully stocked in my cleaning supply cabinet and ready to work!
Although we are a tad too young to have heard the original 1958 jingle, (you can see it here,) we remember hearing and singing along to it with our mom during our Saturday morning chores. Our silly mom would hand all 9 of us kids a cleaning supply item of her choice then dance around and sing the lyrics, “Mr. Clean will clean your whole house and every room that’s in it. Mr. Clean! Mr. Clean! Mr. Clean! ” very animated to get us in the cleaning spirit. 😉
Today, in a nod to #FlashbackFriday, Mr. Clean throws back to his roots with a revamped jingle TV spot.We love this silly updated jingle that is just as catchy as it was when it made its debut!
