Jonathan Scott of Property Brothers Talks Mr. Clean, Renos, and the Bronx

IMG_20150728_143843051If you check Jonathan Scott’s toolbox, you’re likely to find a range of tools for his home improvement projects. But one thing you’ll also find? A Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. We joined Jonathan, along with special guest Ashley Greene last week for a #15minreno event, giving us tips on tackling projects in your new home, or apartment.

Throughout the years, Jonathan has spoken about how much he recommend using the Magic Eraser, so this was a great fit for Mr. Clean and we are happy to share some of the tips we learned:

Those height charts that parents left behind in your new home? Magic Eraser gets them right out. That white retro chair you almost regret buying? The Magic Eraser can have it looking brand new. And now with the Mr. Clean concentration cleaner, there are lots of great uses for that as well, including getting rid of spills and messes out of your refrigerator.

If you didn’t already know, Property Brothers has been filming in the area, including some areas of the Bronx. When we asked what Jonathan thought of the houses in the Bronx, he told us,

“It’s been great. We’ve done two properties in the Bronx and making our way up to Westchester and Connecticut. The properties have a smaller footprint, smaller square footage- so it means you just have to find more creative solutions for storage, multi-purpose spaces and they also still have lots of character even though it’s a smaller footprint. You’ll see when those episodes start airing in the Fall, they’re killer. The families have been insanely amazing, it’s  been a really good season.”
