Tipp-Ex Rapid Fluid
Advantages: It lasts a long time
Disadvantages: The smell can be overpowering
When making an error on anything I always have this small problem of trying to rub it out by drawing all over it and half the time I forget I have Tipp Ex. This product has been around for what seems forever and is very easy to find.
Tip Ex is a fluid which can be used against this brush and put over the top of texts or anything you want covering up. Once it has dried you are then able to re-write over the surface and make sure the mistake has gone completely.
The Tipp Ex fluid is white and it can smell quite a bit so I would not sniff it as most people seem to do and it can be runny so you want to put a small amount on to begin with but eventually make sure you have used enough so the mistake cannot be seen underneath the Tipp Ex fluid.
I find that when I put this on a mistake and made sure the mistake is covered the rapid part is about a minute and a lot of people assume this is not that quick but in theory it is pretty good. If you use more and pill tones of the liquid onto the error then it takes a bit longer to clean up.
If you use the brush to cover a mistake you can sometimes rush how fast you apply the liquid which is a problem you need to take your time and wait patiently otherwise when you try using a pen to write over the top of the problem the liquid can land up on the pen nib.
The smell is very potent but it is one of those which let you aware that the item is around and to be honest the item lasts a long time. I have got a bottle in a side cupboard which I use when doing my own arts and crafts or if I am writing a letter.
I hardly use the product because thankfully computer software allows you to do spell checks so that should be a good enough to stop you using the Tipp Ex fluid but I always have some in storage.
I paid £1.50 a long time ago now for a bottle so not sure on prices now but they vary from store to store you visit. This is a perfect item for students and people in an office to own as it can save a lot of time re-writing stuff up which has a small error.
Summary: A good erasing ink
