Who Needs Markerboards?

Write right on the table.
Use a clorox wipe to clean it all up.
Why worry about passing out those heavy marker boards when you can just write straight on the desk/table/window/floor?  Try it!  It's easy.   Make sure you are using dry erase markers.  Erase with old socks, tissues, dryer sheets, paper towels, etc.  Then when you're finished working, clean with a clorox wipe.  All done!  Back to normal:  so fresh and so clean!  :)
**If your floor has a wax finish you may not want to try that...custodians may get very angry and you ALWAYS want them to be on your side!

All clean...just like new! 
Mark on.
