Hingst’s Sign Post: Cleaning Dry Erase Boards with Bleach

Dry erase films are subject to ghosting (those shadowy images of erased messages). People have tried all types of concoctions to remove ghosting. The remedies include washing the surface with a solution of vinegar and water, cleaning with straight rubbing alcohol or acetone as well as scrubbing the surface with toothpaste. Some hospitals use a mixture of chlorine bleach and water to clean the ghosted images from their dry erase boards.

Sign Builder Illustrated Contributor Jim Hingst writes, “Can you use this same mixture to clean RTape’s EZ Erase™? We didn’t want to guess, so we put the mixture to the test.”
