Clean Your Chalkboard


Add Solvent

Depending on your pen, place your solvent on the chalkboard. The longer you let it sit, the easier the ink will be to remove. You can soak paper towels with rubbing alcohol and let them sit on the chalkboard to keep from dripping. 


Rub with Eraser Sponge

Using a damp eraser sponge like Mr. Clean®️ or a generic version, rub away your design. Add more solvent if any stubborn spots remain.


Wipe with Soft Cloth

Wipe away the residue with a soft cloth. Avoid using paper towels since they tend to leave lint on the board. If your chalkboard looks hazy, like a film has been left behind, dip your rag in soapy dish detergent and wipe the chalkboard again and rinse with water.
