Rubber cement eraser

This thing is truly amazing. I couldn’t believe it when I saw it for the first time. “Rubber Cement eraser? So the immense stickiness of turpentinesque chemical goo that gets everywhere and ruins my art projects can be erased? And by this?” I was caught off guard. I needed to have it immediately.

Basically, rubber cement sticks to this piece of rubber like nothing else. You can drag it gently along construction paper, and it doesn’t affect the paper at all. The cement flies to this thing like a speck of confetti into a vacuum cleaner. It’s truly amazing and everyone should have one.

Well, if you use rubber cement, that is. Otherwise, I’d be at a loss to describe this thing.
