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.

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.

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.

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.
