Clean or Fix a Dry Erase White Board

A white board, or dry-erase board, is a glossy white surface used for nonpermanent markings. Normally, you use a special white board eraser to erase markings on the board. Over time, it becomes more difficult to erase marks from these boards with the eraser. When this happens, repair the white board by cleaning it with a special white board cleaner or with a homemade cleaning solution.

Alternatively, make a homemade cleaning solution by mixing 1/2 cup vinegar with 3 cups water. Another homemade cleaning solution option is to mix 3 tbsp. baking soda with 1 tbsp. water.
