    Why does my eraser melt plastics and rubbers?

    My pencil case tends to be full of pencils (some mechanical pencils have the plastic part that's soft and rubbery for proper grasping). After leaving my erasers in contact with the plastic part, it melts the rubbery part of my mechanical pencils. This doesn't just occur once, it always happens.

    Is it some sort of chemical reaction? I Googled and still can't find a satisfactory explanation to this.
