How to Remove Permanent Marker from a Whiteboard

how to remove permanent marker ink from a whiteboardWondering how to remove permanent marker ink from a whiteboard? We have the answer.

Dry erase markers were invented in 1975 – long after whiteboards were first created in the 1960s. Until the dry erase marker was available, whiteboard markings had to be cleaned quickly, and even then, staining and ghosting were common.

Whiteboard dry erase surfaces have come a long way since the 1960s, including the development of the EverWhite non-staining whiteboard surface in the 1990s.

The EverWhite surface is so non-porous that we guarantee it will not stain.

But what if someone mistakenly uses a permanent ink marker pen on a whiteboard?

It’s often possible to remove that permanent ink easily, especially if your whiteboard has a high-quality surface such as the EverWhite surface.

Here’s what to do: Trace over the permanent ink markings with a dry erase marker. Then, wipe the board with a microfiber cloth, such as our EverCloth. Next, spray the area with a common window cleaner, such as Windex® and wipe again.

That simple process should give you a clean surface.
