This cleaning tip was passed on to me by a veteran teacher. Clean everything with diluted Murphy's Oil soap. It is non-allergenic and recommended by healthy home sources. It is made of pure vegetable oil, is biodegradable and non-irritating like some cleaners with fragrances or colors. I use it especially to clean my blackboards. It leaves them really black and smooth. The chalk adheres better and makes less dust. Everyone likes the clean smell! Just dilute it in a spray bottle and wipe with a damp cloth.
