How are you supposed to remove the marks? This was the only pencil I could find and I'm ready to mark my applique on white cotton. I did a small test and it didn't come out all the way with plain water. I then ironed dry, and rewashed with some soap. It looks as if most is out, but did I set the rest in with the iron?

I looked it up and there are no removal instructions on the packaging.

I'd try an eraser.

adding - a clean eraser, without pencil residue on it. If you don't have one, rub it on clean paper until it is clean.

I know that my dual-color Dritz pen works very well...almost too well. If I even accidentally run either of those colors over with my iron, the marks will not come out. So I feel your pain! I've never even seen the silver pencil.

I havenít used Dritz, but another brand, I believe it was Roxanne. The silver pens come out with regular washing, I wash warm with my usual washing product, did not have any problems. I had a little residue in few places with a lot of thread build-up, but that came out in the next wash. Try another test - no ironing! - I am sure they will wash out just fine. Good luck!

I retested and washed with soap and it did come out. I do like this pencil as it showed up very well on my white fabric....the blues and purples always make me nervous! It also shows on the colored fabrics, when a white pen I bought from the LQS doesn't.

Marking pencils always make me nervous. I hate to spend money on them just to test and find out I don't like them. I have used many kinds most I don't like but the Sewline or Bohn markers do remove with erasers without much effort. They are made with non-waxed chalk and will also wash out. I agree. If I want to press but haven't removed the marks I know I will have a difficult time. Heat sets a lot of things into fabric.

I donít like the purple for quilting, they disappear too quickly, but I like the blue pen, it washes out perfectly, one just has to be careful with the heat. The chalk markers are good, but they rub off too easily. Also, I always check with the particular fabric, once the orange Bohin chalk did not come out! Marking gives me headaches!
