I want to use a mirror as a note board, does anybody have any ideas what I could use to write/paint on a mirror that easily washes off? Dry erase markers are not dark enough. I tried one of those markers for windows like kids use to decorate cars for school spirit, but those seem kinda pricey. I am thinking there has got to be something I can use that is relatively cheap.

HAVE YOU EVER CONSIDERED AN EYE BROW/LINER PENCIL. IT WASHES OFF VERY EASILY WITH WINDOW CLEANER AND ALCOHOL.
Shoepolish works great and wipes off with a hand towel or wash rag.
Maybe you could try pens for use on overhead projectors.

Crayola makes window markers. They are about the same price as regular crayola markers and we bought ours at walmart right next to the other markers.

How about lipstick from the $1 store? or a grease pen (aka china marker) from the hardware or stationary store.
Crayola makes window markers now, and they clean off fairly easily. My children used these, and they were bright enough to see from quite a distance.
I always use a bar of soap to leave messages on my bathroom mirror. Works like a charm.

Sharpie markers, while permanent on porous surfaces, will write on mirrors and can be removed with rubbing alcohol.

same markers you'd use on an easel board.
I use permanent marker, for love notes to my hubby and was using it to write down my weight drops after RNY surgery. I use a Mr. Clean or alcohol to clean it off, all clean!

My daughter uses Crayola washable markers to leave herself notes on the bathroom mirror and they work great. All you have to do then is just wipe off with a wet paper towel.

I use a Dry Erase Marker. A good brand is Quartet. Also use dark colors like purple or blue and green. I personally use black. It comes off with and eraser included on the cap.

Use a whiteboard marker. It comes off like a charm.
