Tips on how to clean your whiteboard

Daily whiteboard cleaning
For quick and dry cleaning we recommend a microfibre cloth. This allows you to remove the residues of the whiteboard markers gently and without scratching, leaving no streaks or fibres on the board. Always allow the written text to dry and only then remove it, otherwise the pen will smudge.
Regular wet cleaning
We recommend cleaning the board in the evening or at least once a week, depending on how intensively you use the product, with water or whiteboard cleaner. For thorough cleaning and to prevent paint residue, use a damp microfibre cloth and clean the entire board. Too harsh or too much cleaning agent can damage the surface! Please do not use cloths or sponges that are too rough and do not apply too much pressure.
Stubborn stains
To remove single stains or smeared areas we recommend cleaning alcohol or, if the stains are very stubborn, the detergent Oranex. Apply a little cleaning alcohol or Oranex to a cloth and slowly rub the soiled area with circular movements. Oranex leaves an oily film on the board, so that the dry wipe of the surface is no longer guaranteed. Therefore it is important to clean the board intensively with clear water after cleaning and to wipe it with a dry cloth, possibly several times.

Pins and magnets
Only use suitable high-quality board markers, we recommend Lumocolor from Staedtler. Other waterproof pens are not made for whiteboards and make cleaning more difficult. To avoid scratches, lift and move the magnets, do not move them on the board.
Removal of permanent markers
If you have accidentally written on your board with permanent markers such as Edding®, we also recommend selective cleaning with pure Oranex. Then clean the whiteboard intensively with clear water and wipe with a dry cloth. These steps may have to be carried out several times.
