How To: Strange but True – If you use a permanent marker on a White Board…a simple Fix to get it Off


So i would not believe it if I didn’t see it myself.  Here is what I did.  [Disclaimer] I wasn’t the one who put Permanent Marker and Dry Erase Marker in the same place. 🙂

I am about to draw a line on the board to separate an are for “Parking Lot” information.  I took a permanent marker “unbeknownst to me” and drew a 1 meter line from top to bottom. Only after I hear the crys of OMG, that is a permanent marker did i stop… but alas too late.


FIX – “Credited to one of the Sessions Participants…”

  1. Take a Dry Erase Marker
  2. Use the Dry Erase marker and cover, really cover, the entry made by the Permanent Marker, be generous in your application but not over kill
  3. Use the Dry Eraser to erase your entry… Voila, the Dry Erase Marker and Permanent Marker entry are gone.
  4. It really works…
Maybe i can get the Sham-Wow Guy to market this for me…
