Works on Chalkboard Paint
on November 18, 2009
Was looking for a chalkboard eraser to use on our chalkboard-painted wall. Was surprised to find it was so hard to find chalkboard-specific erasers (not a dry-marker eraser). Apparently this eraser can be used for chalk and dry-erase markers, but I find that it does a pretty good job erasing chalk. I started with a Rose Art eraser, which pretty much smeared the chalk, while the Melissa & Doug eraser seems to "pick-up" the chalk a bit more. I was hoping for a more grooved eraser-this one is a flush felt marker that has rows of felt glued to the wood handle (it's not like a traditional dry-marker eraser with one "carpet" layer of felt), which must account for its ability to "lift" the chalk off the board rather than just smearing it around. Anyway, if you have painted a wall in your house with chalkboard paint (specifically a drywall wall), this will work a lot better than the Rose Art eraser, but you'll still need to wet-wipe your board at the end of the day.
