Care for your Board: 
Shut down the computer before cleaning your board to avoid scrambling the desktop.
Clean your board with Windex sprayed on a soft not spray the board directly. Do not use any harsh chemical cleaners. For stubborn stains, use isopropyl alcohol (IPA) to clean the writing surface.
Do not use dry erase markers if your Smartboard has an OptiPro surface.    If you must use markers, use the high odor original dry erase only.  The low odor ones are next to impossible to remove. 
Do not use any adhesive tape on the surface.
