    Since school is starting back I wanted to give you a simple way of getting rid of permanent marker on posters, center tabs, class managent charts, etc. As long as the item has clear film on it (laminated) all you have to do is go over the word with an expo marker or wipe off marker and then erase with a tissue and it comes off in one second! I used to have to bring out the hair spray and finger nail polish remover and this is way easier and better! Just wanted to make your life a little easier!!! ;) ;) ;)

    Isn't it a relief to find something so cool that works? I have panicked before when I picked up a wrong pen for a whiteboard and have tried this. It works MOST of the time...I think some colors are extra difficult (green comes to mind!). I have also taken rubbing alcohol to school as a back-up. It's quicker if you're trying to get the stuff off before your partner teacher starts his class. HAHA!!

    Another thing that works great is "Magic Erasers." I just cleaned off all my posters from last year, and there was not the slightest hint of anything ever being there before.

    Thanks for the tips! I am relieved I can put up the finger nail polish- it smells up the whole place!

    I can't think of the brand name of the top of my head, but citrus puppy pee stain remover will also remove permanent ink.
