    Erasers aren't wet, so I'm not exactly sure what you mean.

    Are you basically talking about dry rot? Think older rubber bands which are brittle and eventually snap. I'm not sure if there is a solution...

    If you're talking about the erasers decaying over time, then I guess you'd just have to use them up in a timely manner. Don't buy more than you need, and give away extras at the end of the year.

    If you mean the little erasers found on the end of most pencils, I don't know how to keep them from drying out. I'm frustrated by the fact that BRAND NEW pencils come with these hard little nubbins on their ends!!! I pay attention to the brand, then don't buy them again. This year, I'm going to complain to the company if I come up with a supply of them again.

    I have so many pencils that the erasers have dried out. I just hand out eraser caps but I was wondering if anyone knew the a quick fix. I also have some cute erasers but they seem to be drying out now too.
    Thanks for the help!

    I think I know what you mean, it is like the eraser has become hard and stiff and doesn't work?. If that is what you mean sometimes you can rub the eraser on a carpet and it makes it a little more flexible. I just realized how wrong this sounds so if it sounds x-rated....SORRY.:eek:

    There is an "infamous" post about using fish (real ones as in from the grocery store) to make prints. It turned into a very silly and LONG post :)
