An Extremely-Simple Trick to Clear a Soiled Eraser.


You know, the huge black mark we make on the paper when we just wanted to erase this little line?

It’s not pretty at all… at all. All because of a dirty eraser!

However, it is very simple to clean your eraser! Even when you have nothing on hand. Or just the pants we wear!

So here’s my super-simple and super-quick tip for cleaning a dirty eraser.

How to do

1. Rub the dirty spots of your gum on your jeans.

2. Repeat with all dirty sides of the eraser until there is no more black residue.


There you go, your eraser is now all clean 🙂

Simple, practical and effective! You don’t even need breadcrumbs.

Your eraser is again all clean as if it were new. It saves you from buying it. And it’s always a little extra saving!

Why does it work? To be honest, I don’t know. But it works very well!

You can use denim pants but it can also be a denim jacket, or anything else, in jeans.

Believe someone who drew a lot, a lot during philosophy classes… And it doesn’t even leave marks on the jeans!

It also works with any pants, as long as they are not fabric. But for some, it can leave marks, so I really recommend jeans, it’s safer.

Personally, I really like this technique which works better than cleaning the eraser with water, and which allows you not to dirty a sheet unnecessarily.

And once your eraser is clean, you can even use it to clean your shoes.

Your turn…
