Erasers are made of materials with long chain-like
molecules called polymers. Polymer materials are
usually transparent. That is, they have no color.
To give the eraser its pink color,one just needs
to add a small amount of dye molecules ---
molecules that are specially good in imparting
color. The same molecules are used to make white
cotton into pink cotton (like in a T-shirt).
