    I have a laminated poster that has primary printing lines on it (It looks like handwriting paper). We use it to practice writing in whole group. I have had no trouble erasing, however I have only used black dry erase marker. One of the students used green and now I can't get it to erase.

    What can I use to erase it? I have tried fingernail polish remover, clorox wipes, glass cleaner, Expo Cleaner I don't know what else to try.

    Try isopropyl rubbing alcohol, hairspray, or a magic eraser.

    I think I may have heard somewhere that vinegar might work...but that's a very fuzzy maybe (although it probably couldn't hurt). The Mr. Clean Magic Erasers also clean up a lot of things that others can't seem to.

    Was it written on just recently or a while ago? Sometimes when I can't get dry erase off of a poster after it has been there for a long time I use this trick...write over the dry erase spot again with a dry erase marker. Then try to erase. So try to write on the green with a black dry erase marker and then try to erase. See if that works.

    Take a new dry easer and scribble all over it than wipe it off.

    Scribbling over it with the new marker should definitely work. I found a cool door poster that I haven't used in years. I had written on it in Sharpie. I did the dry erase marker trick thinking it was worth a shot, and it came clean.

    If nothing else works, there is a product you can buy at Home Depot called Goof Off. It's a kind of grafitti remover and works to take off anything.Just be careful not to use it around kids, as it is toxic.

    I also find that scrubbing over it with a new dry erase marker helps. Magic eraser is awesome too.

    Well, I tried the Magic Eraser and it got most of the green marker off. There is only a faint green tint on part of the poster. Thanks, Thanks, Thanks!!! I will definitely be investing in some Magic Erasers!!!

    I did the same thing today with my schedule poster. I used the other colors and they wiped off, when I made a mistake with the green marker...I could NOT get it off. It left the same green tint on the poster. The markers were new also. I also have trouble erasing some of the colors on my whiteboard.
