Can you tell me how one can restore a white board that has been damaged by detergents? What chemicals can be used for daily maintenance?


Since one whiteboard manufacturer suggested periodic cleaning with a detergent solution, the only way the detergent could cause damage is if residues are left on the board to keep the markers from working properly.

Have you tried doing a heavy rinse and drying with clean cloths? Keep spraying with clear water and wiping dry until all residue is gone.

For more tips on cleaning, go to the manufacturer's website and browse.
