Iron Away marking Pens

I thought you might like a little more information on the new marking pens that go away using a hot iron.  Yes, I carry all of the colors that they make.  I find that they work really well on light to medium dark fabrics.  They do not work well on Black and really dark colors.  But then I still have some of my old Chubby Crayon that work beautify on black.  Yes, the really do disappear when you use a hot iron

A couple things to note.  If you fabric Freezes the lines will come back.  I had read that so I threw my sample in the freezer and wow, lines everywhere.  Several of you have looked at me like I’m nuts and said “I’m not going to put my fabric in the freeze.”  But what if you ship a quilt or garment in the dead of winter?  Or your quilt becomes a Car Quilt?  I did wash the sample and then put it in the freezer and no lines appeared.

The other thing of note is that HEAT makes the pens  go away.  If you have your marking pens in say a HOT vehicle and now it no longer works.  Put it in the Freezer for about 10 minutes and it will come back to life.

I like to know how a product works before I sell it.  I have a couple more experiments that I want to try and I will keep you posted.
