Unfortunately, she began to notice that her pool was never completely clean. Even after extensive scrubbing, a green tinge remained in the water. That is when her daughter suggested a cleaning tip that would make her go viral.

The Magic Eraser

Magic erasers have really earned their name. They can be used for a variety of tough cleaning jobs that nothing else seems to work for. Apparently, they can also be used for pool cleaning.

Lisa simply placed the eraser in her pool skimmer bucket for 24 hours. As you can see in the video, it came out completely green. Her pool, on the other hand, was full of crystal clear water.

If It Doesn’t Work

Although Lisa’s hack went viral on Facebook, it may not work for you. That is where these other helpful pool cleaning hacks come in handy. You can try placing a few tennis balls on the surface of your water to absorb excess oils left behind by swimmers.
