Repurposing Pencil Erasers

I can't go anywhere without a pencil eraser because my camera contacts need de-scuzzing about every 20 shots. I couldn't resist this buy on a gross of rubbers for $4.99. I now use them everywhere, like on the end of the ice pick and to protect other pointy objects underway. Of course they're also good for cleaning many types of surfaces such as leather, vinyl, paper, etc. Since I now have a 144 of the little gems, other ideas for using them would be welcome.

Re: Repurposing Pencil Erasers

Not just cleaning electric contacts in a camera but any kind of switch contacts, corroded battery contacts in any battery operated gadget is one I do a lot.
The water is always bluer on the other side of the ocean.
