  1. You know what? When I read White mean Blanco, I was pleasantly surprised because we use the word “Blanco” all the time here when we refer to erasing handwritten texts using a pen. “Blanco” is also used as a generic term to mean “correction tape”. Aaah! And the colour is also white! Now it makes sense and so much easier to remember. the colour. Thanks!
