marking your sew lines and cleaning them off after

I'm trying to work white vinyl. What is best to mark sew lines with that can be cleaned off and not get any color in the white thread?
Seems a small bit EZer on other colors,but white has me bafled too.
Tryed pensel marking off of sew line 1/2 in,then cleaning,but risky.

I use a Fisher SR80SL silver ink pen on leather , vinyl, and Ultraleather. The silver ink comes right off with a cleaner like Fantastik or Formula 409. Here's a link: CLICK HERE They are available on the internet or at a good office supply store for about $3.50.

If they were $25 each, I would still buy them. Not having to mark leather or vinyl from the back side is worth it's weight in gold to me.

China Markers

I use China markers on everything but the white materials. I use the silver pens on the white also. China markers
are about $9 for a box of 12.

And you don't usually find the marks until after everything is sewed together. Try mineral spirits or Xylol. Xylol is just a really good grade of mineral spirits. Some times it works and some times it doesn't. Good Luck.
