We used these in math classrooms with VERY HEAVY use, they do not hold up as well as the real thing, we found that cleaning them by using car wax made them stay functional for much longer. Teachers using car wax got 2 years of use and non car wax teachers were needing replacement within 6 months. Abrasive cleaners and dirty rags are your enemy.

I've used a melamine board before. It does work. For a while. I think mine would have lasted longer if A. I had used wet-erase markers B. not left the dry-erase marker writing on there for weeks on end C. not tried to "deep clean" it with a magic erase sponge. Bleach is not good for melamine. Takes the coating off. For anyone out there that's going to use this as a marker board, double check those tips Read More

Answer: 
Nearly any melamine coated hardboard can be used as a white board, the trick is to treat the surface with uncolored antifreeze concentrate (Ethylene Glycol). The glycol seals the pores of the plastic. Using a clean cloth, wipe the entire face of the hardboard with glycol and let it dry. Multiple coats won't hurt. If you use a cleaner that would remove glycol (Windex for example), re-apply glycol. Warning Read More

Answer: 
The board itself is not dry erase board, but the coating on this and dry erase boards are the same (literally the same) so you can indeed use it as a perfectly good dry erase substitute. I recomend using good quality markers so that you don't have to worry about staining or ghost marks left behind. Hope that helps!

Answer: 
I have put these up in my last three classrooms and they work great as marker boards...not dry erase though. I use baby wipes and then an occasional Clorox wipe but you could just use a damp paper towel or a spray bottle of water. Just don't let the writing stay on the board for a long time. After a couple days, I have a harder time cleaning the board.

Answer: 
I would not. All edges are prone to water infiltration and the hard white surface can be damaged or scratched easily, allowing water to penetrate the base material which is similar to MDF or a pegboard type material.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by so far, so good Like many, I purchased this as an inexpensive white board/dry erase board. I bought the 4 x 8' sheet and hung it in my office to complete a website map. I needed a lot of space. This seems to serve the purpose so far. I am using Windex as suggested by another user to clean the marker off. Ghosting would drive me crazy. I guess I will see in a few days or weeks time if Windex will completely remove the ghosting. September 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dry Erase Board on the cheap! Add me to the list of folks that bought this to be a dry erase board. When I first used it.... NOT impressed. :-( I used Expo board conditioner on it to start off. Wrote on it with an EXPO marker and wiped it off with a piece of fleece. It left a ghost. I gave the board a couple of 'baths' in the conditioner and left it dry. Better. But the blue still ghosted - really bad. Wouldn't actually come off hardly at all- it smeared but didn't come off! I tried scrubbing it with a rag and soaking it in conditioner....I tried alcohol and then conditioning again. Nothing took off the blue. Everything else came off beautifully!! I was all set. I would just not use blue (for pete's sake, a small sacrifice for such an economical board (and I mounted mine as a 8'x4' board in my home office - really awesome). Fast forward. After a few days of letting ink on the board as I wanted it to stay there as I worked through a project... ghosting on the black (only color I had used). I decided to follow the advise of another reviewer. Wax! I figured the best wax for such an application would be the one that beaded wax the longest on a car (not the best for that application, mind you, but for this one... it made sense.) I went and bought Turtle wax hard shell (a couple of bucks at Wally world for a 16oz bottle of "Super Hard Shell" liquid wax). I applied it with a cloth and low and behold - it took the BLUE OFF! I was happy already. I waxed it twice, the second time seriously generously. I let it sit on it until it was good and dry and buffed it off. Gave it a good final buff with a clear terry cloth. The blue no longer ghosts..... Everything wipes off and leaves not a bit of evidence it was ever written on. I went and bought another board and a backer board to cut up into smaller (18"x24") "To do" boards for each day that I can move around and put where ever I am working. Could NOT be happier.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Smells terrible I really like it but the off gassing (VOCs?) is horrible. Not sure if I should throw it out. I'm thinking of painting it to see if that will cover the odor. September 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Inexpensive substitute for dry erase board We used this material to replace two dry erase boards that were ruined by improper cleaning, as we lacked funding at the time to buy the purpose-made boards again. We purchased two sheets and installed them in the classroom. They are working very well as dry erase boards. August 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cut & use for inexpensive whiteboards I bought 1 board & had the Home Depot specialist cut it into 15 12"x18" whiteboards plus 2 larger boards. I used some colorful duck tape to cover the cut edges. I have tested them, & they work perfectly! July 21, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Bought this and had the young man cuthat out 4 pieces 2 ft x 3 ft And made a few smaller boards with left over. Works wonderfully in setting up my many work stations in my classroom. August 6, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Price! Long Lasting! "Win,Win" I needed a white board, looked on line and most where smaller than what I needed and the cost was crazy! around $150.00. -$250.00 Instead I made a Dry Erase board with this, made to my needed specs built an A frame, all was purchased at the Home Depot, all items where in stock. I have been using it since last year, still works and looks great! this is a good buy. July 22, 2015
