WTF! The Blue Side Of Eraser Is Used For A Different Reason

Posted By:

Every time you look at the pink-blue eraser, it can only make you think as to what is the use of the blue side of the eraser.

During childhood, it had been one of the most irritating things to see the papers getting all torn while we'd use the blue part of the eraser.

Here we have listed the possible answer to what the use of the blue side of an eraser could be. Check out the reason as to why these blue erasers were used and we are sure you would think that your entire childhood was a lie.

Find out about the actual use of the blue side of an eraser and laugh about it, since nobody knows about its use even today!


The Legends Told...

We were told that the pink/orange end, which is the softer side is used to erase pencil marks, while the blue side, which is generally hard, is used to erase the ink marks.


Answer To The Age-Old Question!

The blue end is meant for erasing pencil marks on heavy grades of paper or dark marks! This was because it would require you to use more force to erase it. Seriously? Why was it a lie then?


The Pink Side Was Used For?

The pink side was used for precision erasing that could remove a light stray mark from among dark marks. Okay, now we do not wish to know more, as all our childhood we've been assuming something totally different.


In Conclusion...

After all the pain that we had from torn pages to red or blue marks on our sheets, it only made it look awfully shabby.

But when you have a closer look at the eraser, there is a pen nib symbol on the harder blue side, which is to be blamed for this assumption of ours. So, do not worry, we all have been fooled by this great legend - Blue-Pink Eraser!
