Use & Care
- • The dry erase markers we provide erase easily. Before using other types of markers, please test in an inconspicuous area to be sure it will fully erase.
- • Standard dry erase items are water resistant, not waterproof, and are intended for indoor use.
- • Attach to clean, dry surface.
- • Can be rolled for shipping and storage only if artwork is on outside.
- • Rolling with artwork on inside will cause layers to separate and ruin the item.
- • Erase with facial tissue or soft cloth.
- • All products with full-sized magnetic backing should be removed and repositioned every 2 to 3 months to prevent damage to underlying surface.
- • Do not use paper towel to erase or clean. Paper towels have small particles of cardboard embedded in them that will scratch the dry erase finish.
- • Do not use commercial dry erase board cleaner.
- • Dry erase items can be cleaned with isopropyl alcohol.
Removing Stubborn Marks
- • Some marks can be removed by scribbling over them with whatever writing instrument was used to make the mark, and then wiping with a facial tissue or clean, soft cloth.
- • Isopropyl alcohol will remove most stubborn marks, including some made with permanent markers and ink pens.
- • Many brands of hand sanitizer are primarily isopropy alcohol.
Cleaning with Isopropyl Alcohol
If someone writes on a dry erase surface with a permanent marker, ink pen, or a dry erase marker that doesn't easily erase, the writing can often be removed with isopropyl alcohol (often found in hand sanitizer). There are no guarantees that this will work every time, but here's the procedure:
- • Place the dry erase surface on a table or counter so it is horizontal.
- • Be sure to protect the table or counter surface.
- • Cover the writing with a small amount of isopropyl alcohol.
- • Wait 10 seconds.
- • Gently wipe the surface with a facial tissue or clean, soft cloth.
- • Do not use paper towels to clean the dry erase surface.
- • Repeat the process of applying isopropyl alcohol, waiting 10 seconds, and wiping with a soft cloth until the marks are gone.
