First, I wasn't sure whether this should go under "cards and more" or "Home Decor" so sorry if this is the wrong spot.
I want to make a reusable message board for the kitchen so that people can write down things as we run out or if they need something specific for a recipe. As it will never get put up if it requires hanging anything I think it would be easier to just print it on a magnet sheet and stick it to the fridge. Does anyone knoe if the non-magnetic side will wipe dry consistently? I tried it a few moments ago and it worked then, but I'm worried that overtime the board may get ruined if the ink sits.

Maybe someone will come along who knows more...
I have my chore charts laminated and stuck on the fridge. Then I use one of those wax pencils to write the "X" when they do their jobs. I used to use dry erase markers, but they either don't write very well or they don't come off completely when you accidentally leave them for more than a few days (not that I ever did that or anything . . . ). The wax pencil is consistent every single time and just takes some rubbing with a paper towel to get it off. Just an idea . . .
This is the type of pencil that I'm talking about:

Also, you can use shower board from Lowe's or Home Depot for the white board. They will cut it to your specs if you can't find what you are looking for size wise. If you use the shower board you may want to put some kind of frame around it to make it look better.
