Classroom Clean Up for White Boards

If you're still in school, raise your hand. My hand is up by the way. I have 14 days to go! I could probably tell you exactly how many hours also, but I don't want you to think I am obsessed with the countdown or anything. 82.5. Ha. I have begun a bit of the clean up in my classroom though and thought I would share with you a little trick I use to get my white boards clean.
You can buy a cleaner that is made specifically for white boards, but it's usually really expensive and I go through it so quickly that I end up needing a new bottle often. So after a bit of trial and error, I discovered that a little rubbing alcohol cleans them up perfectly. The higher the percentage the better, I used 90% and my white boards look brand new. Plus rubbing alcohol is way cheaper than the products made just for white boards. Give it a try, it works wonders, even on tired, old, whiteboards.

If you are still in school and you've got a Filed Day coming up, I've got a Freebie for you that ties in perfectly. Just click the pic for the download.

I'll keep you updated on my countdown survival. 


  1. That's a great tip! Thank you. I'm going to buy some today.
    Are you down to 7 days now? We have 11. Good luck!

  2. That should definitely be a welcome help for the people who clean the classrooms. Not only will it be one less area for them to clean, should all teachers and students proceed with taking care of at least the white board, it will also set a great example for everyone. Thanks for sharing that clever hack, Leslie! Kudos and all the best to you!
