Removal, usually of written or drawn marks, by rubbing, blotting, wiping, or scraping. The goal of erasure is typically to remove all traces of something, although one finds it practical to compromise at partial erasure. And, the scrambling of material recorded magnetically, as in the use of the delete key on a keyboard. Also see camouflage, clean up, eraser, implied, palimpsest, solvent, and stain removal.
