Hey, Jul....! ALL...
ALL YOU HAVE TO DO TO RESTORE YOUR WRITING IS TO PLACE YOUR NOTES IN A FREEZER FOR A COUPLE OF HOURS - THE INK SHOULD CHANGE COLOR TO ITS ORIGINAL SHADE AS THE t OF THE INK DROPS TO -20°C (approx. -4F) - "FRIXION" INK IS DESIGNED TO "DISAPPEAR" WHEN ITS TEMPERATURE REACHES 65°C (approx. 149F).
Hope it helps!
I am a fountain pen user but I do LOVE the Frixion Series!!!

A little background about...
A little background about my note-taking preference first: I love writing with pens except when taking notes or outlining for a class I use pencils due to the fact that I am always erasing. However because of pencil transfer, like when you write on the other side of the written page, I only use the front side of pages. NEVER THE BACK PAGE. And this never really bothered me, but recently I've been noticing how much more paper I've been wasting compared to my peers. So in comes the Pilot Frixion pen. I was always iffy about eraseable pens, since they didn't seem to give clean pencil-like erasing. But the heat erasing mechanism of the Pilot Frixion pens intrigued me.
When I first got this and the black pen, I was in LOVE. Yes the black looked a bit washed out, but the writing and erasing was amazing. SO CLEAN. And so for the past week I've been writing avidly with my new pens. However upon looking back at my notes I've noticed parts of my notes missing, like a part of a word here and there. And so I realized, when erasing one side of the page, the heat goes through the paper and partially erases what is on the other side. I was devastated. And not to mention soooo frustrated. And while rewriting parts of my notes and getting very annoyed I decided to take a break and write this review.
So yes beside the fact that the heat mechanism does have a downside or two... the pen itself is good and erasing is amazing.

Great pen, erases completely!...
Great pen, erases completely! Would recommend to anyone looking for a fun pen that can erase. Just make sure not to leave in the sun, I made that mistake and all of my notes disappeared!

I absolutely love this...
I absolutely love this pen. It's one of my favorites by far for both the FriXion line, and my pens overall. The pens are great for math notes especially. I can write and erase as much as I need, and it writes completely smoothly. Of course there's the down side of being left in the heat, but for the most part it's not a problem, and just toss it in the freezer for a while and it'll be fine. But the colour is nice and dark and pretty, and I love it!
