Magic Whiteboard! Review

I got to review this thing called a Magic Whiteboard. So what exactly is that?  Well honestly..not sure I can really tell you.  I received a piece of white sheet like plastic.  I mean that is the best way to describe it.  It didn't look like really anything.

I was super excited to do this review based off what I read and saw.  Maybe I just got a faulty one?

So I decided ok, let me see what this thing does.  So i started simple.  I put in on a cabinet. It stuck.  I wrote on it.
 This is what it looked like after I wiped it off.  I mean granted it stuck to the cabinet without anything else but the wipe off was a bit messy.

So then I decided to put in on the microwave since I was already in the area.  It stuck there too.
 As you can see it didn't wipe very clean here either.  Not really a pro for this.

 Finally I decided to use it on the dishwasher.  It stuck on it too.  I mean atleast the thing is versatile on the surfaces it can stick too.
 After wiping this off and only after three uses it is starting to look horrible.

Sadly I decided to clean it off with alcohol and turn it dishwasher now has black ink embedded on it.

I haven't done many negative reviews but I will say this one for me was negative.

Versatile options to place

Does not wipe off cleanly
Thin piece of paper like plastic

Would I purchase this myself? Maybe for my kids to use on the table if it was inexpensive.  I wouldn't use it for myself though.  

However, I do feel that you should check all reviews and possibly check it for yourself to determine if it is something you would use.

Check out this YouTube video:

Wahm Wednesday

Yay, I am on time this week. Sorry for missing last week.  Was preparing for my son's 1st birthday.  So who do we have this week?

This week our WAHM Wednesday shout out is for Heavy Doody.

One of the best one stop shops for wetbags, snack bags, kitchen bags, and all those bags inbetween that you NEED to have.  It is not just for the cloth diapering world.

I have purchased a few bags and have some on the way.  She also does customs as well as special orders through different avenues.  Recently she did a coop for Dr. Who edition bags.  Of course I snagged a few.

Why don't you head over and like her page :)
