Make Your Own Clear Board (My Version of White Board)

It was a couples of years back . . . I bought a rear swaybar from a fellow for my car. When my friend, Sasha, and I tried to install it, it didn't fit and we were just a little puzzled. It had my car model number written on it, in Sharpie style. Sasha said that mean nothing, because it could be erased easily with some rubbing alcohol and proved it!

That's when I learned that you can erase Sharpie markings easily with rubbing alcohol. Rubbing alcohol is basically 91% Isopropyl alcohol used for first aid antiseptic. A decent bottle can be easily purchased at the local drug and pharmacy store for just a few bucks.

The white board at my office is a pretty useful tool for writing and sketching out ideas. I wanted something similar at home, but I didn't want to shell out for a real white board and the costly eraseable markers.

In addition, I have tons of 8x10 photo frames laying around, because I have been a photographer for the past ten years (see my Camera Hacker web site). So I had an idea of using these photo frames and its glass pane as a white board, or clear board as I call it. Simply write on the glass pane with inexpensive Sharpies and erase the markings with rubbing alcohol.
