Writing Tools and Your Glassboard

Writing board technology has come a long way over the years. Evolving from blackboards to whiteboards, to the modern, more versatile, writable glassboard. Writing boards have pushed education, entertainment, and communication forward, and continue to allow consumers to execute their ideas and thoughts seamlessly. 

Each writing board has a preferred writing tool – blackboard being chalk and whiteboard being dry erase marker, but did you know that glassboards allow for even more writing options? 

Choose Your Writing Tool 

Glassboards give customers the option of choice when it comes to how they want to jot down their ideas. Depending on the desired effect: semi-permanent or non-permanent, Clarus boards are compatible with nearly any writing utensil. The most popular writing tool for non-permanent is the dry erase marker, which can be easily manipulated and quickly wiped off. For a more semi-permanent approach, permanent markers and oil-based markers are the utensils of choice. Although the semi-permanent options will give longevity to your messaging and design, they are still able to be wiped clean for a fresh start with the right technique. 


How to Clean Your Glassboard

Cleaning your glassboard is a simple maintenance item that will keep your board looking nice for years to come. See below for the best practices for keeping your glassboard spotless after each use. 

Best Cleaning Items 

  • Soft cloth 
  • Glass cleaner 
  • WD-40 (permanent marker)
  • Acetone or nail polish remover (permanent marker)

Cleaning Do’s 

  • Scrub the glass surface gently 
  • Use cleaners that are approved for glass
  • Spray your cleaning cloth with the glass cleaner instead of spraying directly onto the glassboard 
  • Follow up each cleaning with a dry cloth to ensure the removal of any streaks
  • Wipe down the frame (if applicable) of your glassboard 

Cleaning Don’ts

  • Get glass cleaner between the glass and the frame. This will damage the appearance of the board 
  • Use cleaners that use bleach, abrasives, solvents, or pine oil. These items will damage the glass and the frame’s finishing 
  • Leave stains for a long period of time. The longer stains sit, the harder they will be to remove
