How to erase, obscure, or otherwise render handwritten text illegible?
Imagine you were to have several thousand pieces of paper that you must keep. Further imagine that these papers had handwritten identifying information (say, name and address - mostly in pencil but sometimes in ink of various colours), that you must make illegible.
What's the easiest and most effective way to make that handwriting unreadable?
They will later be scanned by machine, so covering with stickers is probably not a good solution.
