An alternative way to clean a dry erase board

Last week I was folding clothes and noticed that it was extremely quiet on the main floor of our house.  Anyone who's ever had a child knows that this is something that should be checked out immediately.  I was right to be concerned because Michael had decided to take the regular markers that he got for Christmas and use them on his dry erase board.

After taking all the markers away from him and telling him that they are not to be used on the dry erase board, I got out my Norwex EnviroCloth (the one that I used to clean my microfiber couch and so much more) and ran it under some running hot water from my sink.  Rung it out and then handed it to Michael to use to clean the board.

He was not happy with having to clean it up, but I feel that if I had done the cleaning he wouldn't learn and would do it all over again.

I don't know if my saving grace was that the markers were washable, that I caught it in time, or the EnviroCloth is just that good, but it completely came off!

Completely cleaned - almost brand new!  If you don't have this cloth or don't want to spend the money for one, I know that using a dry erase marker over the regular marker and then wiping it with you erase will work just as well.  We've used that trick before, but Michael had completely marked the whole board and I was confident that the EnviroCloth would work.  After I cleaned the board, I ran the cloth under running hot water to wash out all the ink for the marker and hung it up to dry.
