By Allison 21 158

What can I use for an eraser for a dry erase board besides the traditional erasers? Has anyone used something else successfully?

Hi Allison,

I use a soft cotton rag. There might be something better, but I have been happy with that for now :)

We use plain white dish towels that my hubby brings from work. Also, every once in a while, we use a little windex on a paper towel.

The best thing for dry erase boards is hair spray. Get something cheap like Aqua Net or VO5 and spray it on and wipe with any rag or paper towel. It comes out totally clean and dry.

Old t-shirts and old socks work great. Our classroom uses dry erase boards for working problems and each student brings an old sock at the start of the semester just for this purpose.

I know you asked about erasers, but I thought I'd add an extra hint too:

Instead of buying expensive spray cleaner, most dry erase boards will look as good as new if you rub them with a rag dampened with isopropyl alcohol.

As a teacher, I've tried several things. What I find best for erasing are these things: baby wipes, Clorox wipes, old socks, old rags, and my latest find-Germ-X on paper towels. Hope this helps.

I bought several cheap sponges with the green pad on one side and a bottle of cheap alcohol. Dampen, swipe and wipe.

Those clorox bleach wipes work great. Just a bleach solution in a spray bottle with a good cotton rag would be good too.

Personally, I use my fingers, lol. Markers come right off, and if you rub your fingers together most of the time it will rub or flake off.

I gather some free carpet sample squares from home improvement stores and cut them in half. They work great, don't cost anything, and take up almost no space.

Get a small box, like a jewellery box, cardboard ones, not flip open ones. Glue a strong magnet to the inside and wrap in an old sock, kids socks fit better. Rubber band on if need be. Now you have a magnetic eraser with a sturdy shape for erasing only the things you need to without extra cloth hanging down getting in your way.

My friend who teaches Pre-K cuts the Magic Erasers into quarters and has her students use those on dry erase boards, tables, and laminated sheets.
