I just saw one used on Fons & Porter. The marks go away with heat.

From what little research I have done (reading and not actual testing), the marks will reappear if the item is frozen.

Anyway, it may be another option for marking placements for sewing, quilting or embroidery (machine or by hand) as long as you do not freeze after marking

So....I am guessing the elves at the North Pole would not find this handy.

Just a heads-up about these: Someone posted on their blog (I can't remember who, at the moment) that if you re-mark the same spot after the original mark is removed by pressing, that the second mark does NOT disappear with pressing.

I was especially glad to know about this, because I have accidentally removed marks I still need when pressing.

I really like these pens and have used them quite a bit, with no problems. They will sometimes leave a light spot on dark fabrics after the marking has been removed. As with any marking pen it is important to test on a scrap first!

There was a post last year with some useful information. They bleached out some apparel fabrics but overall worked well. I did use black ink on my repurposed sweatshirt and it didn't leave a mark after I washed it.

I was looking for a previous post, but didn't find one. Maybe it is the spelling.

Frixion pens do look like they go away with the iron..but the marks are really still there. They reappear when they are at a certain cold temperature, and go away when hot. If you know this and it isn't a problem, then it's fine to use them. I would not mark something heirloom or anything like that...

If you look closely, the Frixion marks don't really go away. There is a little silvery residue left after pressing. You really have to look to see it, but it's there.

So for those of us who have real winters this would be an issue. I'm picturing it in my head and it's not pretty.

For quilters it is great...or any garment not worn in the winter cold.
By the way, I experimented with these pens when they first came out. Pressing with iron to remove, putting them in freezer to see if the mark came back...and it did. However, washing removed the mark completely.

I love them. They work best on firm, smooth fabric. If you accidentally iron the marks you can put the fabric in the freezer to get them to reappear. After you've removed the marks by heat it will become permanent after washing. These are great for marking things like pockets and buttonholes on the right side of garments.
