don’t believe everything you read.

the package clearly states, at least three different times:

seriously, three times. on the front of the package, the back of the package & then, on the coloring book itself. that should have been a sign. really, i should have listened to my inner shakespeare who was whispering “the lady doth protest too much”. maybe if i had, this wouldn’t have happened:

thanks heavens, it was yellow (which although hard to see in the picture, is that bright highlighter yellow color, on my off-white side table), & not the red, blue or green paint. & luckily, mr. clean, his pal bar keepers friend, & i are on a first name basis… they definitely came to the rescue. thanks guys! i owe you one.

I haven't seen them yet but I'll know better when I do come across them. I agree Mr. Clean Magic Erasers work wonders.

I always wondered if those claims were really true (only writes on the special paper). Sorry for your misfortune, but thanks for the warning! :)

I'm a huge Mr.Clean Magic Eraser fan. I've never heard of the other product by Bar Keeper. My son painted painting for his grandmothers for mother's day, I'm still scrubbing paint off!
