I have both the magic erasers and the cheap generic ones from China. Magic erasers work slightly better... BUT for the price difference, I will only buy generic. 100 erasers for $3.57, including shipping. To be fair though... the generic ones are slightly smaller and definitely wear out quicker; however, that's fine because I like to use fresh ones. I keep them everywhere, and they're great in the garage.

Have tried both with our cleaning business. Maybe for light cleaning there isn't a difference but I will gladly pay the premium for the Magic Erasers. They are head and shoulders above the generics.
What do you use them for?

Big price difference for generic...even on Amazon. Here is one for $6.53 for 100 pieces of roughly the same size as the 4 in this box.

https://www.amazon.com/Baoer-100P...ne+sponges

That's 6.53 cents a piece versus 63 cents a piece. That's like a 2,500% price difference if my math is right (change in price divided by ave x 100). Never used generics but wow, there is a price difference.
More like 1000% (10x more). I still use the generics

In your professional experience, do they provide dandruff control as well?

I don't really have any evidence to base this on, but I don't like the idea of using an abrasive that deteriorates as you use it. I feel like it's something you'll breath in, dunno if that's bad in this case.

Yeah I definitely considered that, but decided that I would post for those that like the brand (and this seems to be frontpage price range for the brand). Having used only the brand, I am in the same camp as you.....not really knowing the difference. I would hope it is in the longevity. Thanks for the feedback.
I've had both a ton and while the eBay ones work, you get what you pay for.

They are the only thing I have found that cleans the shower floor effectively with no real scrubbing. The shower floor gets dark after a while. Nothing seemed to be able to clean it. But these magic erasures did the job fast and easy. They are also good for cleaning tiles.

The big difference between the brand name and generic melamine options are with the durability of the sponges themselves. That is, at the macro level. Both types will abrade at about the same rate on the micro level (they are basically fine sand paper as someone has pointed out), but the generics have a tendency to break off into smaller pieces. With those you might start cleaning with a single sponge and end up with four or five tiny sponges. This depends on how much pressure you use when "cleaning". Still a decent value though when you consider cut rate cost.

Good deal, thanks OP
How do you get these? A while back I used to get offers for $1 credit on music and such for no rush, then it stopped. Haven't seen an option like that in years.

We use ours to clean the shower/bathtub on a weekly basis, removing soap scum. While not the cheapest solution (a can of Bar Keeper's friend + used dryer sheet works just as well), it's by far the easiest and fastest one.

A single Magic Eraser can be used for months before completely disintegrating. For years we substituted with a generic from Dollar Tree; it didn't last as long (generally a month or two), but a 4 pack was only a buck. Sadly, DT reduced it to a 2 pack so we bought a 100 pack for $4.50 through Amazon.

The Amazon sponges disintegrate almost immediately, but they are effective - they just require more effort on your part. Ultimately, for my purproses, there isn't a huge difference in cost — the Amazon generics cost 4.5 cents per sponge, while I stock up on ME at 50 cents. I can probably average 8-10 uses with the ME, with much less effort for the job I'm doing.

Ultimately, it comes down to what you're using the sponges for and your personal preference - you may not want to store a used sponge.

Micro abrasive basically. Very fine sanding action
So, not a good idea to clean phone screens/monitors then?
