EXPO Washable Dry Erase Markers {REVIEW & GIVEAWAY} (2 WINNERS)

White boards are so much fun!  They remind me of an adult Etch A Sketch because you can make mistakes, erase them and not have any trace of the mistake.  They are also much cleaner than a chalkboard and even more so now.  I was so excited when I was approached by EXPO to review their new washable dry erase markers!  My DH and I own a fitness center and use white boards for many different things such as our group exercise schedule which can change at a moment's notice.  It's also better for the environment to use a white board than to print out a whole new schedule on paper if there is a slight change.

I was sent a package of the new EXPO Washable Markers which come in six different colors; orange, green, blue, pink, yellow and purple.  When I wrote on the white board, the colors were very true and bright!  They are also fine tip so writing with them was very easy.  Unfortunately, I didn't have my camera with me when I used them at the fitness center to show you the color of the ink on the board.


These markers are nontoxic and low odor.  They have a slight odor to them but not nearly as bad as other dry erase markers I have used.  I don't know about you, but those fumes can give me quite a headache so these markers were very nice.

Now, I know you are asking yourself this question; are they washable, really?  I was a little skeptical at first and hesitant when I wrote on my hand.  This won't look too professional at work tomorrow if it doesn't wash off!


I was pleasantly surprised, however, when I went to wash my hands and didn't even have to use soap!  Just using water worked beautifully!


See!  Clean hand!  The packaging also says that it comes out of most washable fabrics, car upholstery and carpet.  That's great if you have young children.  I know when I was a toddler, I loved to write on everything!  It drove my mother absolutely batty!  

How to buy:

Go to any store that sells EXPO products and buy them!

  9. From a teacher turned inventor. Most dry erase ink will come out of fabrics with a simple solution of old fashion Murphy's Oil Soap. I would love to send you samples of my dry erase products- non toxic/low odor- markers come with erases and hand held dry erase Paddles. The dry erase Paddles are fun, environmentally friendly and clean up with a simple solution of soap and water- our colorful Paddles come with the marker and eraser in the handle-all in one. Kids and parents give them a thumbs up!Be happy to send you samples for review- We also tell you how to remove permanent marker off the board without chemicals- its free...julia@kleenslate.com http://www.kleenslate.com
