These days, it is not uncommon to find both whiteboards and chalkboards in Melbourne classrooms; after all, both types of board have their advantages and an extra writing surface is always handy. In their rush to get work completed on time, however, it’s likely that teachers and students have accidentally picked up a marker and used it on a chalkboard. How on earth do you remove these stains?
Step 1: Pour some nail polish remover onto a clean rag and use it to rub at the whiteboard marker stain. As the ink comes off the chalkboard, move onto a clean portion of the rag and continue rubbing until it has been completely removed.
Step 2: Fill a bucket with warm water and add in a few drops of dishwashing liquid. Use a sponge to wash away the nail polish remover. Then, rinse it, dip it into some clean water and wipe down the chalkboard in Melbourne again.
Step 3: Pour some isopropyl alcohol to a clean rag and use it to rub at any remaining marker stains. To finish, wash the chalkboard with soapy water once again and rinse with a dampened sponge.
Even though the stains caused by accidentally using whiteboard markers on chalkboards in Melbourne are easily removed, it is best if you avoid them occurring in the first place. To do this, keep markers and chalk well away from each other in the classroom or tie a piece of cloth around the markers to make them easily discernable.
