Everyone makes mistakes. Fortunately, there are erasers for moments when those mistakes happen on paper. Before rubber erasers were invented in 1770 and made more durable via a process known as vulcanization in 1839, people used everything from pumice to bread to expunge their errors. Now erasers are available in a variety of formats and materials to eradicate stray marks, brighten the page, or correct notations. When looking for an eraser, consider a mini version. They come in a variety of inventive and amusing shapes, and they’re convenient to carry in portfolios, tool kits, and pencil cases. Browse our selection of the best ones below.
