These amazing FriXion Light highlighters are erasable! While highlighting textbooks and notes, sometimes you might accidentally highlight the wrong word, or you might over-highlight a chapter and want to un-highlight certain sections. If you're using the FriXion Light highlighters, that's no problem, because you can erase your highlighting! Simply use the rubber "eraser" tip at the top of the highlighter. The ink disappears cleanly, and there are no eraser shavings.

The highlighters are eco-friendly too, made of 87% recycled materials.

FriXion ink is a thermosensitive ink that can be erased by rubbing. Interestingly, erased ink reappears at temperatures below 14° F (-10° C). A freezer is cold enough to make this happen. Due to the thermosensitive nature of FriXion ink, we advise against using it for mailings, or leaving the written materials in hot cars or in environments that expose them to a lot of friction.

Q: My Pilot FriXion pen is not writing well. It seems to be dried out or writing with clear ink. What should I do?
The FriXion ink formula is thermo-sensitive, which causes it to become invisible when heat from friction is applied. If the pen has been exposed to warm temperatures or direct sunlight, this may have caused the ink inside the pen to be "erased." Please try to store the pens in your freezer overnight, then remove them for an hour or two prior to writing to allow them to come back to room temperature. This can usually reactivate the coloring in the ink and allow the pens to write as normal.

Nice for drawing, but, in my oppinion, is too dark for highlighting anything in pencil or fine pen. It erases very well, and is smoohth.

When i first checked the highlighter section and saw "erasable highlighter" i thought it was a fake but bought it anyways cause i wanted to see how it worked! When i got it i tried it right away and erased and OMG was i surprised! It Erased!!! i showed it to my friends one by one surprisingly and every time they'd just stare at me cause i'd draw and erase! they took the pen and inspected it every time lol. It's an awesome pen and as a student very useful for highlighting and in case if you highlight too much you can always erase!

The highlighter is a bit dark, but what do you expect? It's purple! The erasing works very well, but be wary of writing over ink that you've recently used: it will smear.

It is definitely erasable but I don't know about the highlighter part. The violet color is too dark to do much proper highlighting.

The purple is too dark to read most text thru easily. I have the same problem to a slightly lesser degree with the blue.

Pink and green have dried out for me repeatedly. I've gone thru 4 of each pink and green, while my orange and blue and purple and yellow keep going like champs.

The ORANGE is awesome. And all of them erase like a dream - fully and completely. I LOVE this eraseable line of pens. Every one I've tried (highlighter, marker, ball pen) all erase very cleanly.
