Begin by scribbling with your dry erase Expo marker all over your permanent marks.

Next erase the scribbles.

If all of the perminate marks do not come off the first time scribble on it again with your dry erase marker, then erase again.

I realize this six months old but one of my students showed how to do it. I used it for about five years on every brand that was used in the classroom.

Thanks for sharing.
