Melamine foam is a foam-like material consisting of a formaldehyde-melamine-sodium bisulfite copolymer. The foam, because of its microporous properties, may remove otherwise "uncleanable" external markings from relatively smooth surfaces. For example, it can remove crayon, magic marker, and grease from painted walls, wood finishings, and grime from hub caps.

The open cell foam is not only microporous, but its polymeric substance is also extremely hard, meaning that it works like sandpaper but on a smaller scale, getting into tiny grooves and pits in the subject being cleaned. On a larger scale, the material feels soft. Because the bubbles interconnect, its structure is more like a maze of fibreglass strands than like the array of separate bubbles in, for example, styrofoam.

I was reading that post and wondering the very same thing. I have used that thing to clean crayon and stuff up after Knox's youngin's, but I think that he would injure me if I got it near my truck or the (MY) bote(:D)

Not a chem nerd. Just cut/pasted the wikipedia article. I've used it on vinyl, but very sparingly, and always followed up by a good protectant.

eastie is a chemistry guru alright, just ask him about the harmful effects of RV antifreeze reacting with the metal in your engine if left to the open air. He gave me a lesson on it a while back. :D 8p

If you're not careful, your engine will turn to goo.

Something made up like "interchronoxification" or the like.

I think I got a shot from the Dr. one time to get rid of that!

I use it on spas allatime. Works great.

If I get a haze, I buff and wax it back to shine.
