How do I recondition a dry erase board?
I just saw it today in a Parents magazine that Rustoleum makes a paint that is a dry erase formula...the picture showed the paint on a wall in a mud room.
Has anyone tried spray furniture polish?
I use Goo-Gone on mine. Also, Fantastic with orange oil. The orange seems to do the trick.
The crest toothpaste definitely works! I just tried it
out and it whitened the board immediately. Something that
also works is Kaboom.
Plasti-Kleen is also great! They make a formula just for white boards.

Is there any way to redo a dry erase board?
Try the website thinkboard.com , it is a replacement film with dry erase properties.
My dry erase board had grease marker on it. I used paint thinner to clean it off. It worked great, but now when I use my dry erase markers on the board, they won't come off with a paper towel like it should. It just smears. Did I ruin my board, can I fix this? How can I make my dry erase board back to normal?

Michele honey, pony up the $5 and go to Walmart and get another one. It will save you alot of frustration. :-)
Next time you need to clean a dry erase board, try hairspray and paper towels.
Go to an office supply store or a teaching supply store and look for the adhesive sheets of dry erase media. You should be able to find a sheet that will cut down to the size you need. Good luck.
Is there an inexpensive way to fill in scratches on a white board?

You can buy the dry erase surface in rolls or sheets. They are usually self adhesive and can be applied easily. You might try that.
