How to get stubborn dry erase marker of dry erase board....

I will be in a new classroom this fall and walked in for the first time today... the dry erase board easel has dry erase marker (I assume it's dry erase marker but I don't know for sure) on it that just won't come off....
I've tried the cleaner that's made for dry erase boards, I've tried rubbing alcohol too....
What do you know that works?

I replied on your first grade post...

Try a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. You don't even need to wet it first. It is great. I don't even use a regular eraser anymore.

You might try Goo-Gone. It takes off marker from other items.

Once I wrote on a dry erase board with the wrong marker (a permanent one). I discovered that marking over the word with a
dry erase marker and then erasing in the regular way removed it. Sometimes it is necessary to do it more than once.

I second the mr. clean eraser. It works great. I used to use rubbing alcohol before the magic erasers were invented.

Go over the old marks with a new dry erase marker. Cleans like a charm.

Removing Dry Erase Marker

I used Baking Soda a few weeks ago on my dry erase board. It REALLY works! Get a soft rag - place a little baking soda on it and some water. Pass the rag along the board very lightly. There is no need to rub harshly. The marks will disappear. I saw a demo on Youtube. It really works and there is no need for harsh chemicals.

We have an Ionator--you put water in it--no chemicals. Spray and wipe with a microfiber cloth. It's great for white boards, removing glue from tables, etc. They are really expensive--but very handy.

I have the same issue, but with wet erase markers on some of my posters that don't want to come off.

I'm going to try the Magic Eraser!! I LOVE PT!!!

Peanut Butter

We have used peanut butter in the past to remove stubborn dry erase and permanent marker "stains" or writing. Unfortunately, our school is going nut free this fall so we will not be able to use our favorite cleaning agent!

Dry Erase Marker Removal

I use lukewarm water - Place some baking soda on a paper towel or rag - then make it into a paste - rub it against the dry erase board very lightly - marker color will come off instantly - I then use a dry rag to wipe it clean and shiny. It works! Hope this helps.
