    I used a magic eraser to clean some built-up grease off the front of my stainless steel microwave and it left ano ugly dull spot. How can I get the shine back?

      You should never use magic erasers on stainless steel as it's abrasive. Try using some stainless steel polish to buff it out (go along the grain) with a soft cloth.

    Magic eraser is like extremely fine sandpaper. you might want to be careful on things like silverware and cars. I buy melamine sponges from e bay. Amazon has them too. You can clean silverware with aluminum foil on the bottom of a container add baking soda and salt a couple of Tbs. of each. I just pour some in, put silverware in it's almost instant. When tarnish is gone, rinse and dry no rubbing. I keep the sponges beside each sink and on the edge of my bathtub for quick and easy spot cleaning. I use mine while I'm in the tub they work without any chemicals.
