Default Magic wand tool vs Darken blend mode!

Here's another tip I just discovered for Photoshop Elements. I downloaded a picture of Spongebob a while ago and when I tried to put it onto my layout, I had to erase the white area from around him. It was suggested that I should have used the magic wand instead of the erase tool.

I've seen twice now within the last 2 days that if you bring something with a white background onto your layout and on that layer you choose a "darken" blend mode that your white background will disappear. I tried it with the Spongebob png file and it works! The different Darken blend modes will make the remaining portion of the picture look different but it gets rid of all the white at one time! Amazing!!!!!!
