Block Clipping is a glitch when pushable blocks that usually act as a solid object will allow projectiles to pass through them during the moving animation. Additionally, Mirror Block Erase is a glitch where using the Magic Mirror during the moving animation will just erase the block completely.

Execution

Press Y while using the Hookshot, Fire Rod, or Magic Mirror while a pushable block is moving. For the Magic Mirror and usually the Hookshot, repeatedly pressing Y may be easier. Doing so with the Fire Rod won't prevent the Block Clip, but will use much more magic than is necessary.

Uses and Examples

Hookshot

Using the Hookshot while a block is moving can let Link travel though the block by grappling to something on the other side. Some examples of locations where this can be useful include:

Fire Rod

Using the Fire Rod while the block is moving is useful for lighting the torches on the way to Misery Mire's Big Key Chest.
