A Tip For Tuesday - Reusing Dry Erase Boards

If you're anything like me, you have a million and one dry erase boards in use. I use them for chore boards, calendars, art boards for the kids, you name it.

Problem is, as quick as I come up with a use for one, I come up with a way to tweak my system. But I usually mark 'em up with Sharpies to make my grids or labels or whatever, so they don't just wipe right off.

They're not the boss of me, though. I learned how to get Sharpie off a dry erase board. And I pass that knowledge onto you now, so you can breathe new life into your wipe-off boards. Just in time for the new school year.
All you have to do is scribble a dry erase marker over the Sharpie lines, and then wipe off.

Just like new again.

A blank slate, ready for your organizational genius.
