    So I have heard if you use hair spray it will come off, does this work if you have already washed it and if not what now? How do I get ot off?

    If it went through the laundry, I'd say it was pretty much permanent. Sorry... :-(

    I have one, I will give it a try. Should I use it wet or dry?

    i use magic eraser - although, i will admit i use it before washing. I use it dry - making sure the quilt is on a hard surface - table...

    I use pencil all the time. Sometimes if I've marked with heavy lines, I've had to wash it twice but never more than that.

    I use pencil all the time.. I do try to keep the lines fine and I use a soft gum art type eraser to remove it.
