Dry erase markers are wonderful inventions. Not only can you use them to write on the special dry erase boards, but they also work well on glass. You can use this to leave notes in some pretty interesting places.
For example, you can write notes on your bathroom mirror where you will be sure to see it in the morning. The window in your office can also serve as a nice impromptu whiteboard. I have a large desk made from a thick sheet of glass over a frame, so I can use dry erase markers to write directly on my desktop.
Obviously, having everything you write in a neat wooden framed whiteboard is less messy and looks more organized, but sometimes doing something out of the ordinary is what it takes to get results that are out of the ordinary.
Ernest Gunn says
A special whiteboard tip: Vis-a-vis overhead markers (the thick ones) will mark a whiteboard with what seems to be a permanent mark, so you can use these for layout or permanent text. You can write over and erase around this marking with normal dry-erase markers. When you finally want to get rid of your permanent marks, they wash right off.

@Ernest — Good to know. I’m going to have to try it on glass.

Excellent idea! I always wanted a way to have a TO-DO list in front of me first thing in the morning. Most of my lists are in the computer or phone, not easy to access.
Roseanne Schmidt says
This is great! I am glad that dry erase markers can “work” on glass.
But are they equally useful and durable and erasable on tile?
Mark Shead says
Probably depends on the tile. The more porous it is the less I think you’d be able to get it clean.
