Proper Maintenance for Magnetic Whiteboards

Spread the love

From doodling, brainstorming sessions, and non-stop jotting down notes, your whiteboard can certainly serve you well. But just like granite countertops and maple wood floors, dry erase boards need proper maintenance so they stay functional and continue to serve your needs. With that in mind, we have decided to put together some super easy tips on how to maintain the surface of your dry erase whiteboards. 

First things first: always choose solvent-based dry-erase markers instead of water-based ones. That way, you will not have a hard time cleaning your board. Water-based markers take a longer time to dry but when they do, they stick to the surface of the board more aggressively. You wouldn’t want to have a hard time cleaning the film on which marks were left behind, now would you?

Now that we’ve revealed our recommended markers, it is time we get to the daily care tips:

  • Initial cleaning: Use a liquid cleanser and a clean cloth to wipe your whiteboard.
  • Rinse it using clean water. 
  • Using a dry clean cloth, wipe the whiteboard dry. 
  • If the board is used in the classroom or office on a daily basis, these steps should be done twice or thrice a week. 

Tapes and crayons removal has a more detailed cleaning procedure. Follow this guide:

  • Using a clean, damp cloth, apply a tiny amount of non-abrasive cleanser – make sure it has no bleach. Or follow instructions on the product label of the cleanser.
  • Gently clean the surface of the board in a horizontal back and forth motion. 
  • Wipe residue with a clean dry cloth. 
  • Rinse thoroughly with clean water. 
  • Wipe dry with another clean cloth. 

There you go. Some easy-to-follow and practical aftercare of your dry-erase whiteboard. Maintain their functionality and value so they will last longer and can serve your purpose best whether at home, in the classroom, at the office, or personal use.
