    Not really (they're "non-toxic") .... but seriously, do they make any that don't smell? And don't say chalk :rolleyes:

    Really? I'll have to take a look around. The ones I am using are Expos, but they are definitely not odorless! :yuck:

    Some (particularly the red ones) can be downright putrid.

    There is this website that sells dryerase markers that are truly low to no odor they say that the markers don't have the xylene in them which is what must have been whats gives me headaches with other markers. Also the markers are refillable and comes with the ink to do so.

    and yes they erase as good if not better than the expo markers that I used in the past.
