Default How do I clean rubber eraser?

I have one of the SU's adhesive removers to remove adhesive (of course). But how do I get the adhesive off of the adhesive remover? It has little sticky glue boogers on all four corners cause I use it a lot. Now I need to figure out how to clean it so those don't transfer to other projects. TIA

You're supposed to cut off those edges (I find that my Craft & Rubber Scissors work the best) and it leaves a new fresh edge

Oh, wow! I didn't realize that. I was hoping I could just wash it with something. So the eraser will get smaller as I use it? Thanks for the help!

yep it will get smaller as you use it.


I remember this from another brand that I had, but also I just checked the product guide, to see what it says...

"If the surface becomes gummy, just slice off the top layer."

ETA: personally, I just cut off the worst areas, and it does become quite weird shaped and uneven, but still works

Ok that's what I'll do. I'll also order another now, before I need it!!! Just tried it and Tim Holtz scissors worked great!! Thanks again!

Just use sandpaper! I use this to clean my erasers and it works every time!

You can also cut your rubber eraser up. Before you use it. Then it will last longer.

I cut mine into 6 pieces. And those 6 pieces....I cut off a little at a time.

I've had mine for more than 4 years and have never cut off any of it. I just pinch the glue balls between my fingers and pull them right off and throw them away.

I tried that, but I don't get it clean enough and then get my next card too dirty....

I cut mine too, but only enough to get the little balls off. I've had mine for years and it has lots more life left.

Kathy, you probably did this but didnt mention it and I am curious.....when I want to clean any eraser....I "erase" on scratch paper and any junk comes off. But I havent tried that kind of eraser yet. Sounds like I might try scrap WC paper that has more tooth to it with that one? To grab the blobs?

I never tried that! Thanks. My eraser continues to build up sticky balls. WC paper is a good idea too!

A stamping friend of mine trims hers. But after lots of years, I still just pick off the worst blobs, and carry on with no troubles.

I do keep some sandpaper near, so I may check that out, plus cure the curiosity. LOL

Note: If you haven't already become a fan of an adhesive 'eraser' or 'remover' .... you really do need to get one. It can make you happy.

Kathy, is it possible that you use too much adhesive? I've had my eraser for at least 6 years (I pull off the blobbies, too). It's still square because I hardly use it. You should not have glue seeping out from under your different elements. If you do, you're using too much!
