  1. now this is timely. i accidently gave one of the toddlers a permanent marker for their white board instead of the marker for the white board.
    thank you thank you!

  2. here is my favorite way that i discovered by accident. if you use the dry erase marker and scribble over the permanent marker and then wipe away immediately it will lift the sharpie on the white board. kids love this it’s like magic.

    not tested on any other surface.

        i was the one who used sharpie on my whiteboard by accident. wherever i had written over the sharpie it erased even days later. :learncook:

  3. i taught elementary school for several years and used dry erase boards the last few years. a cheap bottle of hairspray always worked for me if a permanent marker was used by mistake.

  4. i used to use aresol hair spray to remove ink stains and markers from clothes. hard to find aresol sprays any more. white boards were common on dorm doors when i was in college and it became the thing to wirte with nasty messages with permanant marker.

    deoderant sprays or hair spray cleaned that up. we use alcohol wipes at work to clean out in/out boards.
