What prepositions should I use in here:

I wiped with eraser what he had drawn with a pencil on paper and blew out the garbage on him.

  1. Blew out / away / off the garbage "on" / or "in" him?

    We don't wipe with an eraser, just use erase as a verb, "I erased what he had drawn..."

I erased what he had drawn in pencil and blew the crumbs onto him.

P.S. Sometimes they're called eraser-crumbs.
