If you want to erase a tape good, pass a degausser over it. It will completely demagnetize the tape, as well as anything in about a 10′ radius. What I’m saying is, don’t do this while you’re in a room (or near a room) with tapes you don’t want to erase. Once the degausser hits them, they’re as blank as they come.
