1117 days ago by rivergirl | 34 comments »

Super Easy Way to Erase Pencil Lines on Wood

761 days ago by stefang | 34 comments »

I read this advice somewhere on the net and I wanted to share it with you. I should have noted who the advice came from, but unfortunately I didn’t. You can erase pencil lines on wood by just giving them a wipe with denatured alcohol. You don’t have to scrub it or even rub hard. It comes right off, like a small miracle. I am really thrilled with this. I hope you will be too. No more erasing or sanding off pencil lines, hooray! Have a great weekend, Mike
