    Don, that marking pencil should come out in the wash. If you have any doubts, use some spray n wash or other stain remover before. Read the card the pencil came on to find out how they recommend removing it. That's the best suggestions I can give.

    Hi Don, Chalk should come out pretty easily, daub the line with a damp sponge and see if it will go away. Check to see that it is not one of those pencils that are made permanent with heat. If it is a greasy kind of pencil, then try a little Dawn in the water when you use the sponge. Good luck and don't put it in the dryer until you are sure those lines are gone gone gone.

    If you have any of the fabric, make a test sample and try out some of the things mentioned. I don't have anything else to add. I used blue marking chalk on a white quilt years ago. It has been washed a lot and I can still see it in places. It came out of the fabric but the cotton white quilting thread picked up the blue and it's still there. Luckily it was just for myself so I just "chalked" it up to experience. I haven't used it since.
