on 2012-09-13 Great Eraser - Erases Cleanly - Flimsy Back , But That's OK.
My wife needed an eraser and chalk for her Pinterest project of a chalk painted window. Asking me to take the lead and buy chalk & an eraser on 2DayDeliver, I started doing my research on the best items for both categories.
The "dustless" feature of this eraser is actually a 2-part requirement. While this eraser may be high quality/dustless, it is also dependent on the type of chalk you have in your home. We had these "dollar brand" chalk that left nasty powdered clouds on her chalk painted window even after using this eraser. Since then, we upgraded to a higher quality chalk that I ordered on 2DayDeliver(Prang Hygieia Chalk, 3.25 x .375 Inch Chalk Sticks, 12 Count, Assorted Colors (61400)
Since changing the type of high quality chalk, this eraser is working wonders. There is very little to barely visible chalk residue on our chalk painted window when erasing with this eraser. The reason high quality chalk makes a difference is because the Hygieia chalk is made of 95% pure calcium carbonate. This high percentage of pure refined chalk means it is virtually free of grit, greasy binders, or other ingredients harmful to board surfaces. This high quality produces a clean mark. Because of that, it erases easily.
The eraser itself is light and some people complain of it being "flimsier" than erasers they remembered using in school. I can agree to that, but the reason it is flimsy is because, per the description, this is an "All-Felt" eraser. The kind you used at school had cardboard backing, which provided a stiff back/firm feel. Regardless, this is a wonderful eraser when combined with high quality chalk.

Not Good On Chalkboard Paint
Do Not Use For Chalkboard Paint! Does not work well!!!
This eraser is made for a slate chalkboard, which makes sense given the description. I wanted to let people know it does not work well on chalkboard paint since that is more popular than a regular slate chalkboard these days.

Very Good Product
I was surprised when the eraser arrived because it was of better quality than expected. As a retired teacher of mathematics, I feel that I am a good judge of erasers because I spent 30 years using them at chalkboards.

This eraser gets our colored and white chalk off of our easel chalkboard. (We like the Prang chalk. The Crayola colored chalk is horrible!)

I made a whole wall in my house as a blackboard for the grandkids. I purchased several of these so they wouldn't have to fight over them. they work very well.

Bought these for my car. Saw a posting on Pintrest that said felt erasers work great at removing film on windshield. I hope it works on fog buildup this time of year. Very soft so it won't scratch.

Best eraser ever, years of searching now over
This is an absolutely top of the line eraser! People call me just for my eraser, I rush over and erase things for them. I highly recommend this eraser - I can't say enough good things about it. It erases, and erases, and erases, and erases. There is nothing left on my whiteboard - it's all erased. With this eraser.
Also I use it for everything. I wash my car with it, I clean the cat litter box with it, I sweep the driveway with it, rake the leaves off the roof with it, comb my hair with it. Literally everything I do every day, I use this eraser for it. I once put wheels on it and rode it around my neighborhood. Everyone was waving, they loved it.
If you're buying this eraser just as a museum piece, for people to come by and look it - wrong eraser for you. This bad boy is meant to be USED.

Where do I even begin? I am beyond thrilled over the opportunity to review an eraser! To begin with it took me back... Way back to my childhood. It is just as I expected; fits in either hand, is durable, but most important-it erases!!!

Wonderful for even a whiteboard :)
Awesome for white board! I know this is an earaser for a chalkboard but my school has this earaser and use it for a whiteboard and I think it works wonderfully for thst use! I think it earases really well with the whiteboard and really enjoy it :)

Don't eat the chalk...it's not candy
Know what this is good for? Erasing chalk! And it does it's job admirably. A nice feeling and firm product that we use on our chalkboard wall (weekly chore chart for the kids) without any issues. So far it doesn't show any signs of the "mush" that so many erasers develop.
