    What is your experience or opinion about Erasable Gel Pens?

    I noticed these erasable gel pens on Nancy's Notion's site today and wondered about them. They seem like they might be a good idea.

    The marks iron off but may come back if in freezing temps if not washed out after disappearing. I use them all the time. They are a great time saver.
    Got fabric?

    Sounds like a FRIXION pen, can be found at any office supply store, WM etc. I use them all the time. They work great and the ink does get removed when washed.

    Thank you bellaboo and pinberrykay. I wondered about the need for it to be washed.

    ​They do look like the Frixion pens available at Staples for the less money. They iron off but use a sample of fabric to test first. They can leave a light mark on dark fabric. I wash my quilt after using them.
