At some point, as I did yesterday, you realize that having the dry erase board is only as handy as actually being able to read what's on the dry erase board. As I was trying to transfer items off the board to my phone notes for the shopping list, I decided enough was enough and got to figuring out how best to clean. Based on a bit of internet searching, I first tried the recommendation of WD-40. It did work and got a lot of the dried on mess off but wasn't quite there. Then I tried the simple idea of a dab of alcohol based hand sanitizer on a paper towel and it was amazing. Got every bit of excess old dried on mess right off. Literally looks like a brand new board!
