    eraser and rubber

    What do we call the little rubber-liked stuff created after the writings have been rubbing out from an eraser?

    What do we call the shredded materials from the pencils remained in the sharpener after penciils have been sharpenedr?

    What are differences between eraser and rubber?

    I know the tool used for wiping out the ink from white board is called eraser as well. Then how do I know one is talking about the eraser for white board or worksheet, notebook...etc?
