Erasing Dry Erase Whiteboard Paint From A Textured Wall

One question that we get asked a lot is how easy is the dry erase whiteboard painted surface to erase. We filmed a quick video of just that – on a normal “textured” or “dimpled” wall, as found in most homes, with a regular Expo dry erase whiteboard marker. We even used a regular Kleenex to erase it – no whiteboard cleaner fluid or hard scrubbing. The marks come off easily as shown.

For situations where the texture is extremely rough or the dry erase whiteboard marker ink has been dry for an excessive amount of time whiteboard cleaner fluid can help, along with the use of something sturdier to clean with (whiteboard eraser, rag, etc).

As with other situations, the smoother the area on which you paint, the easier removal of any dry erase whiteboard marker ink will be. See our FAQ for more information regarding surfaces and possible treatments.

    When I ran a computer store we did as many walls as we could in bohtroam paneling which made great dry erase boards. Our classroom for teaching computer classes had it on all walls. It was great for teaching as everyone could use it as they wished. My kids were small at the time so they use to draw pictures on the lower half which made it fun for all. I don’t think you will regret it.Susan
