Cleaning Stubborn Dry Erase Boards

Use toothpaste (the regular kind) and put some on a rag and scrub over the board where the ink is not coming off, then rinse, wipe with a clean cloth and dry.

OMG. Half of my board has been bad for over a year. Couldn't believe how easy it came clean.

Thank you! My son used an ink stamp on all of my boards. I tried a half-dozen things that didn't work - but toothpaste took it right off! It also took off the old discolored residue from years of use. My white boards look new again.

Toothpaste worked like a charm! My children's Crayola dry erase board was smeared with dry erase marker that had been sitting for months. Now it looks brand new, seriously :) Thank you!
