How to remove Washable Dry Erase Markers from whiteboard

Wipe all stains with a whiteboard cleaner according to the directions on the container.  If any stain remains, apply all purpose cleaner according to the directions on the container.  If the stain persists, saturate a cotton ball with rubbing alcohol, blot the remaining stain and rinse.  Or, you may use Clorox Clean-Up (spray bottle) according to the directions on the container.  You may also try the following:  Use another color dry-erase marker over the stain and wipe off while ink is still wet.  Sometimes, using another color marker over the color, lifts the under color when erased.

ADDITIONAL NOTES:  If whiteboard surface is porcelain, the dry-erase markers should erase easily.  If the whiteboard surface is laminated, use the suggestion provided.  NOT RECOMMENDED:  Soft Scrub or any abrasive cleaner.
