    I have black and red and use all the time for cutting lines where any marks left end up on inside.

    I love these pens and use them all the time. Yes if you put them in the freezer the marks will return.

    The marks do come back if you put the fabric in the freezer, but after you wash the item a couple of times the marks will not return. I love the Frixion pens.

    I haven't tried the one I purchased, but was thinking that I would probably use it the most when making HST's so it would not affect/effect (can never remember which one to use without the dictionary) the quilt - I would love to use it when doing applique, will have to try it on a block to see what happens before doing a lot of them.

    Same here, they leave a bleach line on dark fabric. I only use them now to mark a place that will be sewn, and not seen.

    I also found that they leave light lines after I supposedly ironed them out on dark fabric. I will avoid using them from now on.

    When washed, does the white line come out?

    Do the white lines wash out or are they still there after washing? Inquiring minds want to know.

    NO, they stay. Only use these pens if you do not want the marks to show.
