How do I clean dry erase whiteboards?

Maintaining Dry Erase Whiteboards

Dry erase whiteboards are an essential part of a classroom setting. This piece of equipment can be used for a variety of different purposes. A dry erase whiteboard can be used to work through sample equations, provide information or write assignments for students to copy into a notebook. However, these useful tools can become less effective if the board is not maintained properly.

Care and maintenance involves using only the markers specifically designed for use with the whiteboard. Also, the whiteboard should be erased using the recommended guidelines for the whiteboard. This may include the use of an eraser or specially designed spray. The whiteboard should also be deep cleaned on a regular basis. This cleaning is more intensive than simply erasing the marks on the whiteboard and can help to remove markings which linger on the board.
