removing permenant marker off white boards

if you heavly cover the permenant with dry erase marker ( layer it on heavy) and wipe it off while still wet the sharpie will be mostly gone. this works better than Naptha bug ,juice WD 40 and the rest of the stuff we tried from the Hazmat locker.

Re: removing permenant marker off white boards

In the chem lab we mark the glass reagent and standard flasks using
sharpie and 'permanent' laundry markers and then when we're done with the standard, we clean the markings off with pure ethyl alcohol, it works best, but 80% isopropyl is a good second. You can get a pretty stiff mix of denatured alcohol, which is ethyl with just enough isopropyl to make it poisonous at a paint store or hardware.

Look on the web for Vis-a-Vis wet erase markers; they're pretty permanent
and come off with water very easily. We use those in the nuke plant to placekeep on a procedure that has laminated pages, and can then reuse the procedure after we're done by wiping the pages with a damp paper towel.

Re: removing permenant marker off white boards

I'm a 3rd grade teacher. You better believe I know how to do this.

Scribble completely over the permanent marker stuff with Dry Erase Marker (the kind you would more easily erase).

Now either erase with a dry board eraser or, if more effective, damp rag with glass cleaner.

Hey Wade, another 3rd grade teacher, how about that.

This method works very well. I have also used alcohol to wipe the marker off afterwards.

As far as whiteboard markers that erase easily and don't leave much of a mark, I have found the Expo low oder to be the best.

Mr. Clean Magic Eraser works like a charm with just water or a little Windex.

Re: removing permenant marker off white boards

The easiest is still just scribbling over it with a dry erase marker and erasing as per usual...
