Cleaning a Smartboard

Thanks to Heather who looked this up online...

How do you clean the smartboard?

Applies to: All Rear-Projection SMART Board™ interactive whiteboards, SMART Board for Flat-Panel Displays interactive overlays, Sympodium™ interactive pen displays and Actalyst™ interactive digital signage. Overview

This article explains how to clean the surface of your Rear-Projection SMART Board interactive whiteboard, SMART Board for Flat-Panel Displays interactive overlay, Sympodium interactive pen displays or and Actalyst interactive overlay. Details

To clean the writing surface or screen, use Windex® glass cleaner. Just spray the cleaner on a soft cloth or paper towel and wipe the screen surface. Avoid spraying the cleaner directly on the screen, since the cleaner may damage components if it runs into the edge of the screen.

WARNING: Do not apply isopropyl alcohol, water or acetone to the back surface of the screen. These fluids could damage the diffusion coating, resulting in a permanent deterioration in display quality. If you do smudge this surface, wipe it carefully with an alcohol-free glass cleaner. Do not spray the cleaner directly onto the back of the screen. Spray the cleaner lightly on a cloth, and then gently dab the surface until the marks are removed.

NOTE: To remove permanent marker ink from the screen, use a cleaner such as Expo® Board Doctor. If you have high-odor dry-erase markers (not non-scented markers), you can cover the permanent ink with the ink from a dry-erase marker, and then wipe with a soft cloth or paper towel while the ink is still wet. If any trace of the original permanent ink remains, spray a cloth with Windex glass cleaner or Expo Board cleaner and wipe the area clean.

you should have posted this a little earlier. I have been using water on the back surface of the screen for the last two weeks :(
