Once you have had a whiteboard installed in your classroom or office, you need to start thinking about the accessories that you will need to purchase in order to make use of it – whilst a nice, bright white board looks nice on the wall, it’s not really serving its purpose is it? These are the whiteboard accessories that you are going to be most in need of:
- MarkersNever use anything other than proper whiteboard markers on your board – permanent markers and even generic textas will ruin its surface immediately. These are the most useful whiteboard accessories that you will purchase – available in a wide range of colours (from black and blue to red and green), you will be able to effectively teach your class or write out your notes with ease.
- ErasersBehind markers, an eraser will be the next most useful whiteboard accessory that you can buy. You will need to be able to wipe off all the notes and diagrams once you have finished with them, as well as all the dust that the markers are known to leave over time. There are erasers to suit every budget, from a few dollars to the cost of a movie ticket.
- CleaningEven though your eraser does a good job at removing ink, you will also need to invest in some cleaning products to top up your whiteboard accessories basket – these sprays and wipes are effective at removing tough marker stains, sticky tape marks and all the other dirt that the board is likely to pick up.
Owning a whiteboard is one thing, but you need to ensure that you also own the right whiteboard accessories if you want to be able to use it to its full extent. Markers, erasers and cleaning products are all highly useful and important accessories when it comes to using and maintaining your whiteboard.
