Removing Unerasable Markers from a Dry Erase Board


If you have a white board that has been ruined by someone using regular markers, just go back over the writing with erasable markers, let this sit a short while and then erase. The regular marker writing will be gone!

Removing Unerasable Markers from a Dry Erase Board

I tried using rubbing alcohol, acetone nail polish remover, and hair spray- none of these ideas worked. I have been recommended Mr. CLean's Magic Eraser- we'll see if that does the trick! (08/28/2006)

I found an MSDS for "dry erase marker cleaner" that lists Isopropyl Alcohol as the active ingredient. I remember from chem 101 that this is chemically different from other alcohols, but not how... (12/04/2006)

At school they had used permanent marker on a white board. The custodian used magic eraser and it took it off. (02/03/2007)

The magic eraser didn't work for me. I heard that coffee gets out anything on the white board, so maybe I will try that if all else fails. (08/09/2007)

For deep down seemingly impossible stains, nothing works better than a good old fashion SOS scrubbing pad. Try it and you'll see! (08/10/2007)

Write over the permanent marker with a dry-erase marker, wait a few seconds, then erase.

Magic erase markers are simply dry-erase markers without any of the colored powder. (08/16/2007)

Removing Unerasable Markers from a Dry Erase Board

I tried paint thinner, fingernail polish remover, WD40, Purex hand cleaner, laundry stain remover, hair spray (which does work on pen ink & some board stains) but the winner is CREST TOOTHPASTE WHITENING W/ BAKING SODA + elbow grease! I am a happy lady and saved $75 for a new board!! Thanks be to God! (11/02/2007)

An eraser works great! I used an ink eraser and it came off even faster than with a pencil eraser. But either one will work. (03/25/2008)
