Dentists are warning people against trying a dangerous new viral trend: cleaning your teeth with a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. Magic Eraser is a Mr. Clean-branded line of cleaning pads made with chemicals that should not be consumed or used on any body parts. The trend gained traction on social media platform TikTok, with the original video gaining more than 255,000 likes since it was posted in June.
