I have this white board in my office. About 2 years ago I’d posted some information there, a list of people attending a big meeting. The information needed to stay up there for a while so it ended up getting “stuck” on. We tried EVERYTHING in the book to get this white board clean. We tried buying the “cleaning” solution, it failed – miserably. We tried water, windex, I even tried writing over the old ink with new ink – and that worked, a little.
Well, today I am starting a project (or rather, a part of a project) that requires the use of my white board. Now, I needed to get the whole thing clean (except for the squinchy face Elisabeth drew on it many years ago). I had nothing in my office bu Purell. I though, hey, its got alcohol in it, maybe it will so something.
Lo-and-behold, the board is now sparkling white. I’m not sure if pure alcohol will do the same, but from now on, I’m cleaning my white boards with Purell. Clean AND germ free. LOL
