Removing Permanent Marker from a Dry-erase Board
Permanent marker on a dry-erase board! Your [boss|child] grabs a random marker and starts [writing|scribbling]. Now it’s permanently stained! A quick Google rounded up several helpful pages. Some highlights from the most helpful page:
- Toothpaste â€” this is what I used, and it worked like a charm. The permanent marker was set, too, brother.
- Dry erase marker â€” unbelievably, this is a neat trick. However, it still leaves a residue behind. The toothpaste removed all trace.
- WD-40 â€” untried, although Matushka says this also works for crayons on walls.
Also, keep in mind that window cleaner (like Windex®) is basically the same stuff as “dry erase board cleaner” and cheaper.
