Yes you can! Wite-Out aka Correction Fluid or Correction tape isn’t considered a problem, mostly because it’s used in such trivial amounts. It will likely flake off in the pulper, and the resulting chips will get screened out.

Other minor contaminants that are OK include:

  • tape
  • staples
  • small amounts of wax (emphasis on small… for full crayon drawings, see here)
