Preventing Damage to the Writing Surface

• You can write on your interactive whiteboard with only standard or high-odor dry-erase markers. These

markers usually display a warning to use them in well-ventilated areas.

• Do not use low-odor dry-erase markers, such as Sanford® Expo® markers with low-odor ink, because the ink is more difficult to remove.

• Do not use permanent markers to write on your interactive whiteboard.

• Do not use sharp writing instruments such as ballpoint or fine-pointed pens, which can damage the surface if  they’re applied with heavy pressure.

• Do not use adhesive tape on your interactive whiteboard, because removing the tape can damage the top layer of the writing surface. Cleaning the Writing Surface

• Erase dry-erase ink from the writing surface as soon as possible. The longer dry-erase ink remains, the more difficult it is to remove.

• Before using a cleaner, remove excess dry-erase ink residue from the writing surface with a damp cloth.

• Use an alcohol-free household glass cleaner, such as Windex® glass cleaner, to clean the writing surface. Clean it at regular intervals or whenever you notice that the dry-erase ink remains on the screen after erasing.
