Cleaning Minis with a Magic Eraser - Visuals included!

Great things come in mysterious miniature or pint sized packages, but which great thing will it be? It's all a mystery until you open one. Then the fun begins.

Thank you for this thread! I'm going to have to pick up some magic erasers, because I bought a lot of 40+ mystery minis, and they arrived in a box with no padding to keep them from bumping and rubbing up against each other. :(
