Removing Tape From White Board

A white board is a glossy white surface where one can write with non permanent markers. It is also a good type of communication with other people in school, office, hospital, clinics or even at home. There are times that people post announcements on white boards. Most of the time people just tape the printed post on it so that it cannot be erased and if a not so good quality tape is used, the sticky part of it is left on the board in removing the tape. These stick part of the tape that is left on the board makes it dirty. Whenever you are to erase the writings on the surface, the black ink sticks to that part which makes it dirty.

There is a proper way of removing these sticky things that is left on the white boards. You cannot just wipe it all away just like in erasing or cleaning the surface. If you do not follow the proper step, you will just end up ruining the board itself. First you have to do in removing the tape is you have to remove it slowly with a pair of tweezers. This is to lessen the sticky part that will be left on the white board. After that, wipe the surface with a dry clean cloth or a soft tidy towel. You have to clean the writing area first so that the next steps will not leave a mess.

Now, after cleaning the white board, you can now apply the cooking spray on the areas where there are sticky part of the tapes are left. The cooking spray is a type of oil that is used to lubricate the tapes from the white boards. After applying the cooking spray, just leave it for a few minutes, usually one to two minutes. This is to let the lubricant adapt itself to the tape so that it can be easily removed. After leaving it for a few minutes, you can now wipe the sticky part away from the surface by using a cloth or towel soaked on warm water.

White boards also need maintenance. You have to keep it clean to make it more useful and functional. If there are cases like you have to post a printed announcement on the white board and you are not good in cleaning the tapes off of it, then it would be better if you use a good quality tape that does not leave a sticky mark. In this way, you only not keep it clean but you also saved yourself up from the maintenance of it. But in other cases, keep these steps a reminder for it may be useful in the future. You can also teach this to other people to keep them informed on what to do in situations like these. It is better to share something you know to someone who does not know anything about it because it makes improvement to them and also to you as a person.
