    so I’ve gotten a magnetic white board because taping printer paper sucks! Anyway, overspray etc on your white board, how do you get it off? Can you go several days without cleaning it? I was half tempted to tape some craft or brown paper on it then not worry about it.

    Just curious what everyone is doing

    Thanks Peeps

    I never clean my white board unless I want to paint a T shirt then I just spray some window cleaner on it and wipe it clean but I use etac paints and that paint comes off real easy

    Yup, that's what I do. Simple Green or window cleaner works great on whiteboards. You may have to employ more effort if you leave stuff on there too long.

    I usually tape my paper down to a piece of illustration board that is much larger than the work piece - this catches most of the overspray - the the rest gets cleaned periodically with windex

    I cover mine with newspaper and then just bin that every now and again.

    Windex (with amonia) will do the job...... lay the board flat to avoid the run off making a mess in the frame.
