It's always a good idea to test out chalk or water soluble markers on a scrap of fabric before you mark up your pattern pieces to make sure the marks are going to come out. I go a step further and put my marks on the wrong side of the fabric, so just in case my sample marks were lying to me, I won't end up with a finished product that has little dits and dashes all over it that are visible.

This is helpful because if you press on the marks, the heat may set them in permanently. Whenever possible, only use the wrong side but also the seam allowance.
