Clear selection

A pack of black or blue fine point ball pens with erasable ink that actually erases cleanly. These aren’t the usual cheap erasable pens that you’ve used in the past when they were all the rage. Instead, the FriXion pens use a thermo-sensitive gel ink formula–give it some gentle elbow grease with the synthetic eraser tip (the faster you create ‘frixion,’ or heat, the quicker it erases) and mistakes be gone. Write, erase, and rewrite thanks to this unique eraser technology.

We wouldn’t recommend this pen for legal or official documents, but these pens not only have the Good Housekeeping stamp of approval, but ours as well for everyday writing–and erasing. Comes with 3 pens per pack.

Why We Love It

Erasers aren't just for pencils anymore. With the FriXion line, you can now write in pen and not worry if you make a mistake. You don't have to start over, cross things out, or use white-out; simply erase and move on with your day.

How does it work? 

We could say that FriXion pens are simply magic, but we would be discounting the amazing technology that actually is the secret behind these pens. The trick to the FriXion pens isn’t the eraser, but the special thermo-sensitive ink. The ink formula is comprised of chemical compounds that react when friction is applied. Thus,  the synthetic rubber eraser creates heat when you rub the ink on the paper. The chemical compounds then react to this heat and causes the dye of the ink to essentially change its color and “disappear.” For a fun experiment and to see how the thermo-sensitive ink really works, write a note and then erase with your FriXion pen, and stick the note in the freezer. You’ll see the ink magically reappear!

So how do you make sure the ink erases cleanly from your page? The answer is obviously friction–but the key to a clean and quick erase is by creating friction faster with the eraser tip, rather than slow strokes.

Suggested use

Because of the thermo-sensitive ink technology, it’s recommended that you keep these pens out of extreme heat (like in a hot car or in the sun) as well as conditions where the temperature reaches below 14 degrees Fahrenheit. You wouldn’t want all of your important notes and writing to disappear in the intense heat, or reappear in the frigid cold! And lastly, the FriXion pens are not recommended for signing legal documents or official paperwork (such as those requiring a signature).
