Beware the Green Dry Erase Marker

Posted by Kevin Chenevert (Creator)

As some of you start receiving your tiles I want to alert you that some have had trouble with green dry erase markers staining. Like the dry erase boards you have at school and work, the tiles may stain over time and may require special cleaning beyond a dry wipe. Green definitely leaves a light stain immediately. The easiest way to remove the green stain is with a paper towel dipped in rubbing alcohol or hand sanitizer (which is also alcohol based).

      @Gozuja: This is not official, but I would recommend wet erase.

      What are the ideal markers to use with these between wet and dry erase, etc?

      There used to be gasoline-based art markers. I don't know if they still make them. Those won't clean off with alcohol.

      Anything alcohol based should work on the permanent markers you buy in stores. I don't know if there is something on the fringe that won't respond to alcohol.

      is there anything i need to be aware of with using permanent marker? i saw you need to go over it with wet erase before it'll come off. but does that work with all permanent markers?

      I was a high school teacher. I had to clean/recover a couple whiteboards. This helped.

      They actually make special wipes that turned out to be pretty awesome.

      Glen, I am sure that would work also.

      Hey Ken, would dry-erase cleaner work also? I have plenty of that.
