I have a slate board taken from an old pool table that I want to use as chalkboard. There are some markings, maybe made with permanent markers, which I'd like to remove. I tried just wiping them off but they don't come off. How can I remove them without damaging the board?

1 Answer 1


If permanent marker, alcohol is the usual solvent.

  • Removed the markers but left stains on the slate. Maybe sanding the slate is better? Any advice for that?
