What to use to write on laminated paper?

I have a laminated chart that I update everyday. What should I use to write on it? It is a thin lamination, not a very sturdy one. I've been trying dry erase markers, but I have to scrub the letters off. What should I be using?
Thank you in advance. I do not want to get tennis elbow from cleaning that chart.

You can use vis-a-vis instead of dry erase. I use both depending on how easily I want to remove what I write. The dry erase will come off with a tissue or a dry erase eraser. The vis-a-vis will come off with a damp towel. These are the markers that are usually used on overhead transparencies.

I also use vis-a-vie. Comes off easily with a damp paper towel.

Then use nail polish remover to get it off (assuming you don't get your nails done! ) It comes off effortlessly.

I use vis-a-vis or dry erase. Hairspray removes dry erase easily too.

I also use vis-a-vis. When using a damp paper towel leaves faint marks, usually a household spray cleaner (I think the one I have in my classroom right now is orange Fantastik) will do the trick.

I was at a workshop yesterday and heard that the Mr. Clean Erasers used dry, erase markers from laminated charts to white boards. I just stocked up!!

Dry erase board cleaner also gets it right off. Just today I made a mistake on a laminated sentence strip using a permanant marker. The board cleaner gets it right off!

Vinyl erasers

You can use those white vinyl erasers and erase permanent marker from laminated paper. I use them all the time. I have my passes laminated. I write on it with permanent marker so it doesn't get wet and "run" - and then when the student brings it back, just use the eraser and it takes the information right off for the next use.

I've also used the whiteboard cleaner, it works as well.
