The floor looks great!! 

I’ve been having a sort out today - Though spending the time has mainly accomplished making me realise that there is a LOT of work to get it in order.  
 

It’s a right state. 
 

Though fractionally less of a mess than it was.

Thinners might do it or some spray graffiti remover regards Stephen

Just tried thinners and graffiti remover in the garage both remove permanent marker if your struggling for either of the two let me know and I'll bang a can of GR in the post for you tomorrow regards Stephen

Depends on the brand of pen. I’ve got some pens which wipe off after a year plus on the board. Others won’t wipe after a day!

i either use a bit of alcohol or brake cleaner to get the stubborn ones off.

Acetone I think. Any solvent based cleaner should do the job well enough.

You would thonk but that wasn't my experience, I found some ink was quite tricky??

Some of the really bad pens take a wipe over.... 20 secs and then it will wipe off.

The other thing which also works for permanent pen too, is to colour over the top with another dry-wipe pen. Then it will normally just wipe off.

Lynx deoderant also works!

Thanks chaps - I tried window cleaner; nothing - tried white spirit ; nothing  - then oven cleaner ; nothing ..... I was starting to wonder.

I have brake cleaner and acetone though - so can try those.

Hence why i made a chalk board from a piece of plaster board easy to wipe off 😃

Sounds good - which racking did you go for? 

Not sure as son looked at a few different makes and suppliers and ordered it for me but it's the steel frame type with wood shelves and each shelf holds 200kg :)
