This was a bit of an impulse purchase on my part but one which I am very happy I made. This is, admittedly, a bit of a silly thing (an eraser dust cleaner), but it performs admirably at its task, and many of my students have expressed tremendous envy at how cute and fun it is.
This is definitely going into the category of “stock up on a few so I can give them as presents”.
I haven’t had any trouble with the wheels, but it’s possible such issues will arise after more extensive use.

For now, however, this has been utterly delightful.

This is a hilarious gadget to use whenever I clean up my eraser shavings and other various objects (staples, etc.). However, with the eraser shavings that are more attached to the paper, I sometimes have to manually clump them together since the cleaner brush is not strong enough (it seems) to pick them up off of the paper.

Erasing just got a lot more fun with this cool car! It picks up eraser dust very well too. One star knocked off because the wheels pick up the pencil marks if you run the car over the pencil marks. I get around this by shaking the eraser dust off of the paper, which is a minor inconvenience. Overall, a fantastic product for this erasing fiend who hates eraser dust.

BEST BUY EVER~! So I’m a bit crazy when I erase my drawings or homework which leaves me with a LOT of eraser dust/scraps and I can’t continue until I throw it away. With this little cleaner I can just roll it over and it picks it up great, just a few pushes across the page and it’s clean. So far I don’t have any problems I hope it holds up for a long time!

– Really easy to clean out
– Fun to push around, picks up eraser dust fast
– Pretty sturdy. ..I dropped it T_T but anyway no cracks and still works perfectly

– My dog is afraid when I use it, but tries to steal it when it’s not in use
– My sister steals it when she does her math homework
– My dad wants to take it apart to look at how it works

– big enough to hold and erase comfortably

Overall, I liked this eraser, but be sure to cut down the holder and erase with little pressure. The cardboard holder cut into mine and caused it to fall apart in chunks. Then as I would erase more pieces would just randomly crack off, even after I cut the holder. Anyways, the clumping works well but still too many pieces for me personally, and the erasers ability to actually erase is great. I reccomend this eraser, but I have been having a much more enjoyable exprence with the BOXY. 🙂

This is a good quality eraser that erases cleanly. The “dust” conveniently gathers into rolls.

Gourmet Pens: JetPens Review: Iwako Zoo Novelty Eraser

I received a package in the mail from JetPens, which I knew was coming, but I had no idea what would be in it. I squished the package around before opening it, trying to guess, but I couldn’t figure it out. I knew it was small, and firm. But I just couldn’t guess. I opened it up and this…hilarious. Adorable. Wee little eraser was inside. I actually started to laugh because it was just cute and comical.

90,000 How an eraser can melt plastic. Chemist Explained

A user of the Reddit portal showed a photo that proves that erasers can erase almost anything, and plastic is no exception. To do this, you don’t even need to turn to magic, you just need to know chemistry well.

A girl who is fond of chemistry (but not the one between Aniston and Pitt), under the nickname Sweet_Mousse, shared a photo with Reddit users that reveals one of the magical properties of a rubber band. It turns out that an eraser can erase not only a pencil and sometimes a pen, but also plastic.

As proof, she showed what the eraser did to the body of her writing accessory, and at the same time explained why this was possible in principle. The magic outside of Hogwarts, which may suddenly appear in the sky, has nothing to do with it.


My eraser melted the pen. Some erasers contain a chemical called a plasticizer, which can react with different types of plastic.

The Sweet_Mousse statement can be confirmed if we turn to science: a plasticizer is a substance that makes a material soft and flexible. Therefore, it can be found in the composition of the same eraser or, for example, polymer clay.

At the same time, when interacting with some types of plastic, it can easily react and begin to melt the latter. So it’s worth taking a closer look at where you leave your rubber band next to.

For many, a small educational program from the redditor turned out to be a real discovery, which immediately became a reason for jokes.


Well, it’s an eraser after all, so it’s natural that he tried to erase the pen.


That’s what I understand, a REAL ERASER.


THIS IS THE ERASER REVOLUTION! When the Erasers decided to strike back.

In addition, for some, Sweet_Mousse’s post was the answer to one of the mysteries of childhood.


You just solved the mystery of my life.Every time I noticed that my eraser was stuck to other stationery, I was always confused.

Science is a truly amazing thing with which you can create even less magic. For this, the blogger set his hand on fire, but there were no injuries, because he knew physics well.

Likewise, the girl was lucky, who dipped her hand into boiling oil, but was left with a whole and intact limb. Her ally in this matter was not fraud, but science.

What is the name of the remains (sawdust) from the eraser (eraser)? Eraser Pencil Scratch Eraser

Many people think that ink traces are an irreversible and irreducible phenomenon. Many do not know how to paint an old pen, the core of which no longer writes, but it is this pen that needs to be corrected. Sometime during school years, everyone tried to correct the remark that the teacher wrote in the diary.But it was very difficult to do it beautifully, it turned out to be a daub. Indeed, removing the paste filigree is not so easy, but possible. So how can you erase a pen from paper? A technique for getting rid of ink marks will come in handy for many:

  • schoolchildren and students;
  • 90,129 teachers working with magazines;
  • office workers dealing with various documents;
  • correction of sick leave;
  • for mothers, whose little children are artistically decorating new wallpapers.

You will learn how to quickly wipe a pen off paper without damaging it in the following “folk” recipes. Also, many are interested in how to wash the paste from clothes, let’s try to consider everything in this article.

We remove the paste from white sheets

Folk remedies do an excellent job with any stains, including ink stains. To reduce written in ink from a sheet of paper, you need to know not only the components and proportions, but also the individual mechanism for removing such stains.

Soda paste

Features. The easiest way to remove ink is to use baking soda. Our mothers did this, but the method is relevant to this day.


  1. Dilute a teaspoon of regular baking soda with water to a pasty consistency.
  2. Using a cotton swab, apply to the intended cleaning area.
  3. Hold until the paste dries.
  4. Just peel off the powder.


Features …Ideally, you should use lemon juice, but if citrus is not on hand, use citric acid powder. Only it needs to be slightly diluted with water.


  1. Cut the lemon and draw out some fresh juice with a syringe.
  2. Gently drip onto ink blot and saturate the stain.
  3. Use with care on very thin paper to avoid acid attack on paper fiber.


Features.Table salt gives the desired result in combination with soda and lemon juice. According to reviews, this method is very effective: the acid dissolves the ink, and the task of the soda-salt mixture is to instantly absorb them. As a result, there are no ink stains or streaks on the paper.


  1. Mix 1: 1 salt and baking soda (half a teaspoon is enough).
  2. Apply to desired areas.
  3. Press down the mixture with any flat object.
  4. Wait 10-15 minutes for the components to penetrate the pores of the paper.
  5. Gently moisten the powder with lemon juice (drip from a syringe).


Features. Ordinary table vinegar is also capable of dissolving traces of ink. Just be careful and do not let the substance come into contact with the skin or mucous membranes.


  1. Dip a cotton swab in vinegar and dampen the ink lines.
  2. After ten minutes, dip a cotton pad in dishwashing detergent (no dyes) and gently blot the cleaned area.

Warmed vinegar will help to discreetly remove the gel pen from the paper. This is a fairly common method: you just need to heat the essence to 50 ° C, apply to the ink stain, then wipe with a damp cotton pad and blot with a dry cloth.

Potassium permanganate

Features. An excellent remedy for getting rid of colored paste is obtained by combining potassium permanganate (on the tip of a knife) with a teaspoon of vinegar essence. In this way, you are guaranteed to get rid of traces of the gel pen, as well as blue, red, green paste.This option is ineffective for removing traces of black color.


  1. After completely dissolving the crystals of potassium permanganate with a cotton swab or a thin watercolor brush, apply the solution to the area damaged by ink.
  2. Soak a cotton ball in hydrogen peroxide and remove the brown stain from the paper.
  3. Dry the sheet, iron if necessary.


Features. Acetone will help to gently remove the paste from the ballpoint pen from the paper.Nail polish remover is also good. The white paper will be clean again – no traces of the ballpoint pen or any product used. Note that the blue paste will wear off much faster than the black one.


  1. Dip a cotton swab in the liquid, blot the ink.
  2. If the blot is large, you can use a pipette and just drop acetone onto the stain. If the blot is tiny, use a toothpick.
  3. Remove any remaining moisture with a paper towel.

Medical alcohol

Features.Alcohol is another substance that can dissolve ballpoint pen marks. Of the additional funds, you only need an iron.


  1. Using a damp cotton swab, apply alcohol to the desired areas and wait until the paper dries.
  2. If you need to clean a large area of ​​recordings, moisten it with alcohol for a couple of minutes.
  3. When dry, iron the sheet through a layer of clean paper.


Features. “Bleach”, which is widely used in the household, is also effective in removing ink.This method will take 20-25 minutes on average. Consider the bleaching properties of bleach and use it only on white paper.


  1. Again, use a cotton swab to apply whiteness to the blot.
  2. Watch as the ink paste turns to dry white powder.
  3. Remove it and blot a clean place with a damp cotton pad.

How to Erase a Pen from Colored and Glossy Paper

All of the above methods are effective on a white sheet of paper.To remove a pen stain from colored paper, you need to use the following three-step technique.

  1. In a tablespoon, mix equal parts glycerin and rubbing alcohol.
  2. Using a pipette or syringe, gently apply the mixture to the ink.
  3. When the stain disappears, blot with a damp cloth, dry and iron if necessary.

Pen erasing glossy paper is even easier. Since the paste contains alcohol, any alcohol-containing liquids can be used to remove ink.Of course, no colorants or strong flavors. Just soak a cotton pad in alcohol, squeeze out thoroughly and wipe away the blot with its edge.

Try to remove the paste from the gloss with a regular eraser. Just wait for the ink to dry.

Mechanical impact

Although such methods do not allow jewelry to remove the paste (roughness and damaged structure of the paper will still be noticeable), they are nevertheless very popular.

Razor blade

Features.This skill requires a trained hand. There is a risk of cutting both the finger and the sheet of paper. If you are not sure, please choose another method.


  1. Carefully, without pressure, scratch the desired area with a sharp blade (keep it perpendicular to the surface).
  2. Blow out paper lint.
  3. Sand the surface with a blade (its plane should now be as parallel to the paper as possible).
  4. Gently align with your fingernail.


Features.Use a fine-grain sandpaper to remove the top layer of paper along with ink marks.


  1. Cut a small piece and stick it on the top of a pencil.
  2. Without applying pressure, rub the sheet with gentle strokes.
  3. Blow off fine particles of substance and paper dust.
  4. Smooth down the paper with your fingernail.


Features. You can use a regular eraser, a special ink eraser, or a vinyl eraser.But remember that any of them may not give the desired result, but only damage the paper.


  1. Erase unnecessary writing with gentle strokes.
  2. If that doesn’t work, try moistening the paper sheet slightly and rubbing again.

Error masking devices

With the help of a clerical corrector, you can make unnecessary inscriptions, unwanted errors, clerical errors or blots invisible. This special matte white liquid is designed to smear ink.Liquid correctors that require drying after application are available in different forms: with a brush, with a soft applicator. They are in the form of a pen with a metal tip (works when pressed).

Proofreader is an irreplaceable thing for those who work with various documents, accounting reports, magazines. After all, the use of other methods of removing ink blots is possible only at home. Although there are pitfalls in this business. So, in official documents (for example, in a work book) it is strictly forbidden to clean up, glue or cover up incorrect information or mistakes with a proofreader.Invalid entries are invalidated and corrected only in accordance with statutory rules.

Roller belts are especially popular. It is a dry proofreader that hides errors and blots under smooth white tape. You can immediately duplicate the desired entry on it. By the way, the correction strip is invisible on the copied or scanned sheet of paper.

Always be careful not to correct mistakes, just try not to make them. But if this does happen, do not be discouraged – now you know how to wipe a pen off the paper.

For an artist and any other person who deals with drawing / sketching with pencils and soft materials, an eraser is an extremely useful and necessary thing. This post will be about my rubber bands and my personal impressions of them.

At the head of the parade is an eraser-knot – a very convenient elastic band: it does not crumble, does not spoil the paper, it can be crumpled into an erasing surface of any length and thickness. Usually, I cut the gum into three parts, because it makes no sense to use everything – it is large and not convenient. The only negative is that it does not erase a very deep stroke, because it cannot be pressed on, there is not enough rigidity.
Left Koh-i-Noor in a box (well done manufacturers! The only ones who guessed to sell a soft gum in a box that collects all dust and any small debris where it lies).
Gray elastic band, it seems, Cretacolor, somewhere the wrapper was torn and lost (but if it were in a box!).
Faber Castell guessed to make the rubber bands colored, which is much more pleasant than the standard nasty gray color, on which even dirt is not visible.
Conscience did not turn to leave a pink gum when loki1101 he just won’t be able to sleep if she stays with me.I had to give it =)

Recently Cretacolor also released colored nags, which is very nice

Battery device with an elastic band. If you press and hold the button, the elastic spins and erases.
We immediately took a set of “cartridges”, because it often happens that such items disappear from sale and their consumables too.

Fine details cannot be rubbed, but it is very convenient for removing deep strokes or removing a dried reserve for watercolors

Faber Castell in its repertoire: cool, comfortable, high quality.
Fits all pencils, but looks great with family pencils!
Pencil in pimples, elastic in dimples =)

And, of course, kokh-i-norov “elephants” are familiar to absolutely everyone, familiar and predictable.
Even in art we were taught to cut them diagonally in order to erase with a thin tip, and not with a “log”.

But with the button rubber, Koh-i-Noor clearly gave up. An extremely useless thing: the gum is very soft (bends), gets very dirty, thick, smears.
Exclusively for children to play or for masochists …

Another interesting type of rubber is a pencil eraser. This type of rubber bands is convenient to use for small details: to make a small glare, to add volume to the hair, to add small light spots to the landscape, in general, everyone will find for themselves where and in what they can be applied.
Faber Castell produces two types:
– soft (without a brush)
– hard (with a brush)

This is how it “draws”. The contrast is not very noticeable, because the pencil was 2H

Not long ago we had STAEDTLER eraser pencils on sale.I really like the watercolor pencils of this company, but this is the topic of a separate post. Pencil eraser like this (similar in quality to a hard “Faber Castell”)

Hope my review was helpful.

A dirty eraser leaves dark marks on the paper. You can prevent these smudges from forming by regularly cleaning and removing dark pencil marks from the eraser. It’s easy, doesn’t take long, and doesn’t require much effort. You just need to remove the top layer of the eraser and get to the clean rubber.


Using a blank sheet of paper

    Take a blank sheet of paper. Any piece of plain paper will work to clean the eraser.Do not use glossy paper as it is not rough enough. Rubbing the eraser on paper that is too smooth can cause dirt to spread over the entire surface of the eraser, making it difficult to clean.

  • Find tough, thick paper to rub the eraser well against without tearing. In addition, when rubbing against coarse paper, pellets and flakes will be removed from the eraser, and with them, o will leave the surface of the gum. Most of the dirt.
  • Do not rub the eraser on paper that is handwritten or printed on by a printer.Ink from a pen or printer and graphite from a pencil will further contaminate the eraser.
  • If you can’t find coarser, heavier paper, plain printer paper can also be used to clean the eraser. An added advantage of printer paper is that it is perfectly white, so you can tell exactly if the eraser is completely clean and is not staining the paper.
  • Rub the eraser against the darkened areas on the paper. Take a close look at the eraser and look for darkened areas – these are the ones to clean the eraser from.Once you get rid of these areas, the eraser will erase like new. Rub the eraser firmly against a blank sheet of paper; be careful not to rub the gum again on the already stained areas on the paper.

    • Use your finger to touch the dirty areas on the eraser. Sometimes graphite leaves a soft dirt on the gum that resembles putty. Such dirt can be scraped off the eraser with your fingers or nails.
    • Be careful not to smudge dirt on the eraser with your fingers or rub it deeper, which will complicate further cleaning of the eraser.
  • Continue rubbing the eraser until it is completely clean. As a result of rubbing against a clean sheet of paper, the eraser will be freed from pellets and flakes, with which the graphite dirt will also go away. Regularly remove any lumps and flakes from the eraser to keep dirt from collecting.

    • Use a drawing board or tilted desk to help roll the debris off the paper. For this purpose, you can also attach a piece of paper to the wall.
    • If the eraser is large or has a lot of dirt on it, you may need to turn the sheet of paper upside down.If there are no blank areas on the second side of the sheet, take another sheet of paper.
  • Store the eraser in a pencil case or pouch. Thus, you will protect the elastic from drying out or, conversely, the destructive effect of too humid air. However, there is no particular need to have a separate box for the eraser! A regular pencil case will do – it will protect the eraser from dust and extend its life.

    Clean the eraser regularly so that no dirt accumulates on it. If you are an artist and often use an eraser, you should regularly clean it from dirt and other defects. Even if you don’t use pencils and an eraser often, you may still need to clean the eraser several times during its lifetime.

    • Regularly remove graphite grime from the eraser to save money and ruin your work. If you are using a low-quality eraser or soft pencils that make the eraser dirty quickly, carry a few sheets of clean paper with you so that you can clean the eraser if necessary.

    Using sandpaper

    1. Purchase sandpaper that you can use to clean the eraser. Sandpaper will allow you to quickly get rid of the dirt on the eraser. You can purchase this paper at your local hardware store or craft store.

      Sand the dirty areas of the eraser with sandpaper. Look closely at the eraser to look for areas that have accumulated dirt, debris, and pellets.As a rule, they appear as dark spots. These are the areas that you should focus on when rubbing the eraser against the sandpaper. To clean the eraser, rub it lightly against the sandpaper; do not press the eraser too hard against the paper.

      Store the eraser correctly so that it does not get dirty again. To prevent the eraser from hardening or deteriorating, keep it in a pencil case. You can also use a plastic, sealable eraser container to keep dust, dirt, and debris out of your eraser.

      If necessary, clean the eraser again. When using sandpaper, be careful not to erase too much eraser. Eraser will wear off much faster on sandpaper than on regular paper. Apply light pressure to avoid rubbing off too much of the eraser.

      • Using sandpaper, you can easily remove dirt from the eraser and properly clean its surface. This will improve the quality of your eraser and extend its life.

    Identifying and fixing eraser problems

    1. Determine what type of eraser you are using. Some erasers are designed for special purposes. For example, a very hard eraser is designed to erase deep marks left by a soft graphite pencil or ink pen. Find an eraser that works for your writing instruments.

    2. Check how hard your eraser is. Some erasers, such as those designed to remove marks from a pen or soft graphite pencil, are harder than other erasers. However, over time, the eraser can lose its elasticity and become so stiff that it stops rubbing. Press down on the eraser with the tip of your nail. If the eraser won’t budge and is too hard, you may need to get a new eraser.

      • To further check if the eraser is workable, you can take a piece of plain paper and write something on it, or just draw a few lines with a pencil.Then try erasing the lettering with the clean end of your eraser. If the graphite simply smudges or leaves a stain after wiping, the eraser is unlikely to be used later.
      • Before you finally decide that the eraser is unsuitable, you can take 180-grit sandpaper and erase the outer layer of the eraser. Sometimes only the top layer deteriorates and hardens, while the inner volume of the eraser remains elastic.
      • Artists often trim the edges of the eraser and shape it with razor blades.This method also allows you to cut away dirty areas of the eraser.
      • Sometimes you can remove dirt from an eraser with plain soap and water. Wet the eraser, rub it with soap until the dirt comes off, and wash off the soap with water. Wait for the eraser to dry completely before using it.


      • If you use plain paper or sandpaper to clean the eraser, it may get dirty. Be careful not to use an important document so as not to spoil it.Discard the used paper after cleaning.
  • Children love coloring, and sometimes their surroundings (such as walls) can serve as a blank canvas. Luckily for parents, there are various ways to erase a colored pencil from wallpaper, walls, furniture, and other surfaces.

    How to remove a pencil from walls and floors

    Choose the cleaning method that is safest and most effective for your surface.When using a liquid cleaner, be sure to test it first on a small, hidden area – make sure there is no negative reaction on the surface to be cleaned.

    Why does the eraser erase?

    Hypothesis: An eraser (eraser) can equally successfully remove from paper the mark left by a pencil and a ballpoint pen. I think the eraser is made of rubber, which is why it is called an eraser

    Erasers may come in different colors, shapes and sizes.

    Purpose: Determine the properties of the eraser (eraser).Find out why the eraser erases pencil writing.


    • Find out what happens when the eraser erases lines;

    • Conduct experiments and reveal the capabilities of the eraser to remove marks from

    • Pencil and ballpoint pen;

    • Find out what erasers are made of.

    • Determine the properties of the eraser

    • Determine why the eraser erases the inscriptions made with a pencil, and the inscriptions written with a pen cannot be erased

    Research methods:

    • Think for adults.

    • Turn to the computer, browse the network

    • Internet

    • Experiment.

    • Consult the encyclopedia

    Expected result :

    My research will help find the answer to the question posed, confirm or refute the hypothesis.

    Object of study: eraser (eraser)

    Problem: Hello, my name is Lisa, I am 5 years old.I really love to draw. Once I was drawing a flower and I was unable to depict even petals, then my teacher suggested that I use an eraser to erase the pencil and draw again. I took her advice and I got a wonderful flower. I wondered why the eraser erased the pencil. What is this wonderful invention of the eraser.

    How is an eraser made? The starting material for the manufacture of erasers is natural or synthetic rubber.It is ground and mixed at room temperature, after which the temperature gradually increases and stirring continues under hot conditions until the desired consistency is achieved.

    During this process, various additives are added to the material, in particular small amounts of mineral and vegetable oils for mixing, as well as sulfur. The rubber is then poured into a mold and subjected to high temperatures and pressures and then cut and removed from the die.

    How does an eraser erase a pencil?

    Pencil marks are nothing more than the smallest particles of graphite. When the rubber band is rubbed against the paper, electrostatic stress is generated. Due to this, graphite particles adhere to the eraser particles.
    The eraser is able to clean off, remove a thin surface layer of paper, along with which traces of graphite are removed. Everyone, probably, at least once in their life went overboard, erasing this top layer too hard – and ended up getting a hole in the paper.
    Also, anyone could notice that when using the eraser, it shrinks in size, and crumbs from the erased eraser remain on the paper. This removes the top layer from the “eraser” itself, and not just from the paper. This does not happen with an old, dried gum, so the graphite particles stick to the gum and stay on it. And when you touch the paper again, graphite dirt is simply smeared on it.

    Practical part

    Interaction of the eraser with a pencil and ballpoint pen.

    Experiment 1: Eraser and pencil.

    Purpose: To investigate the interaction of the eraser with a pencil lead.

    STEP 1. I write a word on a piece of paper and examine it under a microscope.

    STEP 2. With the help of a microscope, I can clearly see the fibers of the paper and the marks left on them by the pencil lead. These marks are made up of tiny particles of graphite that are stuck in the top layer of the paper.

    STEP 3. I take an eraser and go over my inscription a couple of times.I look at the paper again under the microscope.

    STEP 4. Under the microscope I can clearly see that there are practically no traces left on the paper.

    CONCLUSION: eraser can remove pencil marks on paper without leaving a trace.

    Experiment 2 Eraser and ballpoint pen.

    Purpose: To investigate the interaction of the eraser with the ink of a ballpoint pen

    STEP 1. I make an inscription on a sheet of paper with a ballpoint pen.

    STEP2 With the help of a microscope, I can clearly see the fibers of the paper and the marks left on them by ink from a ballpoint pen.These marks are deeply absorbed into the paper.

    STEP 3. I take the eraser and run it a couple of times over my inscription and again examine the paper under the magnifying glass.

    STEP 4. Under the microscope I can clearly see that traces of ink remain. To remove them, I worked hard, even rubbed a hole in the paper. But it was not possible to completely remove the traces.

    CONCLUSION: A regular eraser cannot completely remove the ink mark from a ballpoint pen.

    With the help of experiments, I saw what the magic of erasing with an eraser consists of: when you rub over the paper with an eraser, small pieces of rubber come off from it and roll on the surface of the paper.These pieces of rubber, as it were, glue the particles of graphite or ink to themselves, tearing them off the paper. From this, dark gray pellets were visible everywhere on the paper.

    But with traces from a ballpoint pen, he cannot completely cope.

    From this I concluded that with an eraser you can erase a pencil, and it is impossible to erase a pen and felt-tip pen, since the pen contains dyes and they penetrate deep into the paper, and graphite remains on the surface

    Research results .

    The tasks I set have been completed: We have identified the main properties of the eraser. We learned how the process of erasing a pencil line and a line made with a ballpoint pen with an eraser takes place. Conducted practical work (experiments on erasing pencil lines, lines from ballpoint pens).

    Studying the literature, reviewing the Internet, conversations with educators and parents, experiments and experiments allowed us to draw conclusions:


    Pencil lines are erased almost without a trace.The structure of graphite molecules facilitates their easy separation from each other when rubbed with an eraser.

    Ballpoint pen paste contains oils that penetrate deeply into the paper. The eraser can only erase it with the top layer of the paper. In this case, the eraser must be made using abrasive materials.

    Thus, the hypothesis that an eraser (eraser) can equally successfully remove from paper a trace left by a pencil and a ballpoint pen has been partially confirmed.

    The erasing process is as follows. It is carried over the paper with an eraser, small pieces of rubber come off from it and roll over the surface of the paper. These pieces of rubber seem to stick to themselves particles of graphite or ink, tearing them off the paper

    Practical significance of the work: This material can be used in the classroom on the world around, the fine arts.


    In our computer age, people have become less likely to use an eraser.
