CARE AND CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS
Porcelain Enamel Steel Markerboards (LCS) may be washed as often as required.
Porcelain is a form of glass; therefore, the surface should be cleaned similar to
cleaning windows. We recommend using clean water or Claridge 683 Board Cleaner
The best method for cleaning is to use water or liquid cleaner, rub briskly, and then
wipe the surface dry with a soft cotton cloth. (Be sure to remove excess liquid from
the chalktray.) NOTE: Do not use abrasive cleansers. Discontinue use of erasers
saturated with marker residue build-up.
Permanent markers, marker residue, lipstick, fingernail polish, etc. may be removed
from the LCS markerboard writing surface with isopropyl alcohol without damaging the
surface. Merely clean, rinse well with clear water and allow to dry completely.
Wash prior to initial use to remove any grime that may have settled on the surface
Porcelain Enamel Steel Chalkboards (Vitracite) do not require regular washings and
should not be washed daily. Note: Do not use aerosol spray-type chalkboard
cleaners on Vitracite chalkboards.
The Vitracite chalkboard surface may write and erase more efficiently after a
chalking-in process. This chalking-in process is quite simple and requires little
time and effort. First, make certain the chalkboard surface is completely dry. Then,
using the flat side of a pure white, good grade dustless chalk, chalk the entire
surface. With an all felt eraser, using a circular motion, work the chalk into the
board surface. Last, clean the board with a good quality dry chamois or soft cotton
cloth. A faint chalked-in look is normal for a properly cleaned chalkboard surface.
Persistent buildup on Vitracite chalkboard surface may be removed with ordinary
kitchen cleanser such as Ajax or Comet, flushed thoroughly with water, and dried
per instructions above. (Do not use abrasive cleanser on LCS markerboard
surface.) NOTE: We do not recommend the use of colored chalk. Most colored chalk
is petroleum based and may leave a film on the board surface.
Wash prior to initial use to remove any grime that may have settled on the surface.
