Mechanical Pencils Reduce Smudging

Found in: routines & procedures

To help me avoid smudging that arises from being left-handed, my dad gave me mechanical pencils with hard lead. Number 3 pencils also work well. Number 2 pencils made outside the U.S. seem to smear the most.

Another trick that works is to keep pencils sharp. As points wear, letters become wider creating more surface to smear. Mechanical pencils eliminate the point-wearing problem.

Also, fine point pens do not smear as easily as regular pointed ones.
