break off dirty bits of eraser as you merrily go along.

dirty rubbers are the bane of my life

sharp thin type eraser in a holder; as the end gets dirty, you just apply pressure to snap off as much of the eraser as you wish. replacement erasers are slotted in at the other end.

Not that I endorse that particular outlet, but I think it's the kind of thing you're looking for. My Dad used these years ago. [PeterSilly, Oct 05 2004, last modified Oct 17 2004]

The pencil at the bottom of the page is actually an eraser, one end soft for pencil the other end hard for ink. If it gets dirty just use a pencil sharpener to take off a thin layer. Also never crumbles or dries out like some other erasers. [kbecker, Oct 05 2004, last modified Oct 17 2004]

//dirty rubbers are the bane of my life//

That statement is just disgusting. If you are to cheap to buy a new rubber for your next date go to the AIDS prevention center in the nearest town. They give away new, clean rubbers for free.
