Marker Board Cleaners
Explain your idea in details:
Continues use of the marker on the board leaves a black spot, which gradually takes over the whole board and becomes difficult to clean. Sometimes the board had to be replaced which is expensive, that is why I decided to come out with something that can clean both temporal and permanent markers. That was why I came up with this innovation to solve this problem and also save money.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
These spots left by the marker becomes difficult to clean therefore interferes during teaching when the teacher or lecturer want to write on the board. It also interferes with reading or copying notes on the board and therefore does not allow class to go on smoothly because students have to stand up and get closer to the board in other to see what is written clearly. My targets include individuals, schools or any institutions using marker board. You dont necessarily have to search for temporal markers just to write on the board because of the fear that permanent marker cannot be cleaned.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
I came out with this innovation to help maintain the marker board. I usually give samples out to schools or individuals using marker boards to try it out. All those who have used my marker board cleaner are impressed not only because it cleans temporal markers, but permanent markers too. I stated with savings and since I design (flyers, logos, etc.), I just bought the bottles and did the bottle branding myself.
