When it comes to keeping your whiteboard clean and stain free, one of the more useful pieces of equipment in your arsenal will be your eraser. There are actually a number of different whiteboard erasers to choose from, so you need to ensure that you are making the right decision for your needs. One of the up and coming types is known as the refillable one, and here is how it works:
Felt – This eraser features, more often than not, a plastic holder that you grip when cleaning the whiteboard. This holder is fitted with a felt pad that soaks up the marker ink. When this pad becomes dirty, you can remove it from the holder and either replace it with a new one or give it a good wash and reinsert it into the cavity.
Wipes – This whiteboard eraser features a plastic holder than you grip when wiping the surface clean. This holder is fitted with some moistened wipes, actually very similar to wet ones, which take the marker ink from the surface of the board. When the wipe becomes dirty, you simply peel it off to reveal the new one underneath.
As you would imagine, there are a number of benefits associated with the use of refillable whiteboard erasers over the kind that you simply use once before disposing of. For one, they are much more cost effective, as purchasing refills is far cheaper than purchasing all new erasers. For two, they are more environmentally friendly, as less waste is ending up in landfill.
