    How cool is this. I was using one of those nylon shower scruffy ball. Guess I get to go shopping tomorrow!

    Is there something special about the big pink eraser? Is it the size or the fact it's pink? I've never seen them in Australia. Would any type of soft eraser work?
    Just googled it and saw a picture, see why it's called that.

    Pretty cool! Never thought to try an ordianry pencil eraser. Learning something new is a good thing. Thanks for sharing!
    Life is good when you make time for family and friends and of course quilting!

    Any eraser will work....I have found a really good dry tooth brush (the stiff the bristles the better), works great also...rotating cutting spots is something we often learn the hard way.

    I use a sponge that is covered with microfiber, also bought from the dollar store, and it picks up all of the lint too. Before that, I used to use a piece of flannel, that works also.
