Cleaning whiteboards
« on: December 23, 2012, 04:19:39 am »
I am sure everyone else has dealt with this, as no one wants to hang around the venue after the bout and clean and organize NSO equipment (myself included).

How does everyone else clean whiteboards? I have a couple of white boards which have been taped for the old ruleset, which I will be reformatting to be used with the new ruleset. In addition, some of our boards still have penalties marked on them from bouts which might have been several months ago.

While I assume a strong solvent will clean a whiteboard easily, I'm worried about dissolving the surface, and making it harder to erase in the future.

There are specific whiteboard cleaners, and they do tend to work better than generalized cleaners.   You can get this at any just about anyplace you get the markers.

If whiteboard cleaner doesn't take the tape residue off acetone is supposed to be safe for whiteboard surfaces and will definitely get that.

For marker residue you can often get stubborn marks off by scribbling over them with a dryerase marker and then wiping it up immediately.

The whiteboard cleaner you can get at an office supply store is magical. When I had to change my old board from 5 box trips to 7, the tape residue wouldn't come off. I sprayed the cleaner on it and let it soak for a few minutes, and a quick wipe from a paper towel took it off. It's not cheap, but it's awesome. They also make handi-wipe style cleaner things, which I want to get for travel...
