Gather all necessary materials to help you prepare for the cleaning. We recommend using:
Erase the entire board surface using your eraser.
Eliminating excess dry-ink dust is an essential step when cleaning your dry-erase board. Whether you have a glass dry-erase board or whiteboard, you will need to completely erase your board to achieve a truly clean and clear surface.
The porous surface of whiteboards can hold dry-ink dust deep below the visible surface. By erasing thoroughly, you are able to loosen that dust, which makes it much easier to lift dust with the cleaning solution. For best results, use a Quartet Eraser.
It’s important to make sure the glass surface is fully cleared of ink dust. This helps make future board use and cleaning easier. We recommend using a Quartet Glass Board Eraser.
Spray the cleaner evenly across the board surface.
Quartet cleaning sprays are formulated to help dry-erase surfaces resist ghosting or staining during regular use. It easily lifts dry-ink dust and dirt from the surface of the board.
Standard cleaner is suitable for all board types, including porcelain, melamine and painted steel marker boards. It helps pull dry-ink dust from porous surfaces to prevent board staining. We recommend trying our Whiteboard Eco Cleaner formula, which we’ve found to be the most effective at lifting dust from the surface.
We don’t recommend using standard cleaners on glass boards. Our Glass Board Eco Cleaner has a vinegar-based formulation that helps reduce streaking and effortlessly removes dry-erase ink, dust and dirt from glass. This fast-drying solution is critical to preventing marker ink stains and helps make future cleanings easier.
Grab the first dry towel and wipe the cleaner off of the board surface.
Take the second towel and go over the board surface again to ensure that it is clear of all cleaning solution.
If the solution isn’t properly dried off of the board surface, the marker ink and the solution can combine during the next use. This can make it more difficult to erase your board during future cleanings.
