Looks similar in function to my 30+ year old Signet SK305 Electronic Stylus Cleaner, which I continue to use on a regular basis. I use Last Stylus Cleaner 4 on mine. Results are always great - - - a really clean stylus.

Stringreen, I too have had no damage from a few years of Magic Eraser. But, I always felt that the cantilever was getting a fairly tortuous ride and that was my concern. Also, if you can examine the cantilever and the bottom of the cartridge with high magnification after using the Eraser you wil find lots of tiny white bits clinging to it, so some debris is added in the cleaning process.
I just wanted to share my experience with cleaning my stylus using Magic Eraser. I inspected the stylus under a microscope before and after cleaning, and did not see any white residue or debris. Take a look at my before and after shots:
I would also like to add that I purchased myDynavector 10x5 cartridge used, and had never looked at my stylus under a microscope before. I assume it was this disgusting the entire time. While I always thought it sounded good, I never thought it sounded great. After polishing up the diamond, I can't even describe how much better it sounds. Tracking is unbelievable, even on the hardest passages, and jazz instruments sound like they are actually in the room with me.
I can't recommend Magic Eraser enough. It changed the game for me. My pictures speak for themselves!
