Caring for MimioBoard
Properly maintaining the MimioBoard surface will keep your board looking like new and
never compromise performance.
Cleaning MimioBoard
MimioBoard is designed to give you long and trouble-free service while requiring very little
maintenance.
Solvent-based dry-erase markers, rather than water-based or low-odor dry-erase markers, are
recommended for use with MimioBoard. Low-odor markers take longer to dry and the ink
clings more aggressively to the surface, leaving behind a residue.
Cleaning the MimioBoard Dry-Erase Surface
If the MimioBoard is used daily, cleaning should be performed two to three times per week.
Repeated cleaning may be required for writing left on the board for more than two days.
You can easily clean the dry-erase surface using the following items:
n
Whiteboard eraser
n
Liquid whiteboard cleaner
n
Lint-free cloth
To clean the dry-erase surface
1. Using the eraser, clear all writing from the dry-erase surface.
2. Wipe the surface with a clean cloth moistened with liquid whiteboard cleanser.
3. Rinse the surface with warm, clear water to remove any cleanser residue.
4. Dry the surface with a clean, lint-free cloth.
Cleaning the MimioBoard Frame and Stylus
You can easily clean the frame of the MimioBoard and the stylus using the following items:
n
Lint-free cloth.
n
Isopropyl alcohol, diluted dishwashing detergent, or diluted glass cleaner.
If you use glass cleaner, make sure it does not contain ammonia.
To clean the MimioBoard components and frame
1. Disconnect the USB cable from the MimioBoardcable.
2. Use the lint-free cloth to wipe the MimioBoard frame.
19
Caring for MimioBoard
3. Remove dirt and smudges with one of the cleaning solutions mentioned above.
Avoid using liquids on any exposed charging contacts. Do not allow liquid into
any openings on the equipment.
4. Reconnect the USB cable.
To clean the stylus
1. Use the lint-free cloth to wipe the exterior of the stylus.
2. Remove dirt and smudges with one of the cleaning solutions mentioned above.
Avoid using liquids on any exposed charging contacts. Do not allow liquid into
any openings on the equipment.
