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.

I have blackboard erasers- those black felt kind- they are at least 7 years old and not 'drying out'??? Do you mean the pink kind to erase mistakes on paper? Not seeing a drying problem there either???

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.
