These marks appear like shadows to your new notes. If you want to remove or clean your whiteboard of these ghosting marks, you can do so in a few easy steps. You will need a few household items to help you finish the task. You do not need to have a professional clean the board for you.

Things You'll Need

  • Isopropyl alcohol
  • Paper towel
  • Toothpaste
