When you are moving out of one place there are several somewhat irritating Tasks which usually need to be completed. One of them is to fix the drywall by filling in all the nail and screw holes left by the artwork you had hung around the house.

Previously, this meant coating the areas with drywall spackle and using a spatula to smooth it over the hole before you eventually had to sand and paint it. When leaving a rental, it is best to leave the walls clean and ready for a fresh coat of paint, while new homeowners generally appreciate a fully finished drywall repair with fully painted walls before moving in.

Luckily, there is an easier solution these days that thousands of Amazon users swear by for drywall repair. For less than $12, you can get a stick of Erase-A-Hole for filling holes in drywall, wall plaster, or wood.


The product is quite simple to use. You apply it in a circular motion to cover the hole before dusting off any excess using your hand or a soft, damp cloth. When Erase-A-Hole dries, sand over it, if necessary, before painting. The special compound can repair nail holes or cracked plaster and matches wood, plaster and drywall.

Erase-A-Hole’s compact size is one of its greatest assets, as you can carry it in your pocket or on a tool belt with no problem. Another advantage is that the mixture does not dry out in the tube between uses.

It’s available on Amazon for $11.89. With over 7,200 global reviews to date, Erase a hole is highly rated with an overall rating of 4.5 stars out of 5. People who have raved about it say they find it easy to use, easy to clean, and good value for money.


Review Melissa said she had been using this product since December 2021, when she first purchased it, and the original tube was still like new in August 2022, when she wrote her five-star review. Another person says she used it after removing the shelves from her wall and called it “a lifesaver”. She found it easy to use and did a great job.

This drywall repair product would be ideal for homeowners, renters, and students as it allows you to bypass the use of netting or drywall spackle mix. It is also made in America and manufactured and owned by a small family business.

Would this be a good fit for your toolbox at home? If you’re planning on moving soon, it might be worth adding to your cart.
