On accident a permanent marker was used on the dry erase board. I have tried using a dry erase marker on top of it with some degree of success. Is there something to use that completely takes the permanent marker off?
Not 100% sure what an erase board is. Australian. If it is a white board you can go over it with a white board marker or nail polish remover. If it is what we call a blackboard I don't know. Good luck.
I accidentally used a Sharpie one day and I just sprayed the White Board Cleaner and it took it off quickly. Try using hairspray. Hairspray will take Sharpie off of anything that is laminated. It might work on the White Board.
I accidentally marked on my white board a couple years ago, with a permanent marker..it wasn't a sharpie..it was the other kind...I think it's called an "king" something...it's thick, and a silver and black striped stinky one...one of my students got the smart idea to go over it, with a dry erase marker, and then wipe it off...and it worked.
May want to check it out, and see if it works.
You aren't going to believe when I tell you what you have to do. Just take the dry erase marker (the one you should have used) and color on top of the permanent marker, covering it well. Then take your eraser and erase the whole thing! Really, it works. It happened to me one day when I was subbing. I was horrified when I sheepishly went to the custondian for help. He laughed and said "no big deal" then showed me what to do. I couldn't believe me eyes and was soooo relieved that as a guest teacher I hadn't permanently ruined the teacher's board.
I have used fingernail polish remover. Others have used baby wipes. I just saw a new product made just for this in Staples the other day. It looks like a broad marker. You just write with it where you want marks gone.
For stubborn marker stains on desks or anywhere, I like the magic eraser. This a product available at groceries or the Dollar General made by Mr. Clean. It cleans up kool-aid stains in the kitchen. It is cheap and effective on stubborn stains.
Remember From School, A Blackboard Is, "Black". A White Bulletin Board Is White With A Slicker Surface Than A Blackboard. Blackboards Uses chalk to write on them. A Bulletin Board uses a Magic Marker to write on it.
