In summary, "Undo Highlighters Chemical" are a type of highlighter pen that contains a special chemical that allows the ink to be erased or removed from the page. The chemical reacts with the ink on the page, making it invisible, and can be easily removed by rubbing it with the eraser tip of the highlighter or a damp cloth. They are safe to use as the chemical used is non-toxic, and can be used on most types of paper, although it may not work as effectively on certain types of coated paper. Unfortunately, they cannot be refilled, but they do have a longer lifespan compared to traditional highlighters.

Is there a chemical that "undos" highlighters(yellowish thing)?

Well, this is an insufficient question, I suppose. Yellowish light can be absorbed by viewing from a blue glass (cobalt glass, as we call it), but the process is purely physical. The chemistry is in synthesizing or employing the blue chemical on the highlighter. Since the question is incomplete, my answer is incomplete, too.

Is there a method I can get the yellowish thing off the page... sorry I'm no pundit on this matter so my question may sound absurd and be incomplete.
