Why can't normal markers be used on dry erase boards?

Dry Erase Boards and Their Markers

Remember that Dry Erase boards only work with dry erase markers. If you attempt to use a normal (non-dry erase) marker, you'll find your reminder note is a permanent one. Stick to dry erase markers made by companies such as Expo and Marks-A-Lot who have both been in the marker business for years.

Most Dry Erase boards come with markers and a cleaning solution in the same package. Take special care to use the markers that come with the board to ensure you don't leave permanent stains on the board.
