Good news and bad news. The good news is your newly-adopted wheaton terrier has officially adjusted to your household and feels right at home. The bad news? Your newly-adopted wheaton terrier is officially adjusted to your household and feels right at home. On your couch. Your newly-adopted leather couch, to be exact. Don't fret. Dig through your kid's backpack to find a quick fix for those unsightly scuffs.

Curious? The eraser of a pencil will cause that scuff mark to virtually disappear right before your eyes! Another reason why back-to-school is sometimes the happiest time on earth.

Bonus? You can also use the eraser of a brand new pencil to clean an LCD monitor or computer monitor, as well! Be sure to rub lightly and use a clean eraser, as graphite marks on the eraser can cause additional scratching to the monitor.

Who knew your new favorite cleaning solvent would rest in your child's classroom?

    I'd be very careful using a pencil eraser on my LCD screen. Some erasers contain a grit that will irreparably mess up your screen. And even brand-new erasers can become hard and leave a nasty streak behind. I really don't think this tip is worth the risk.
