Chalk line color

Once a chalk line reel is empty, has anyone had success changing the color/type of chalk?

Add another color, red is permanent...and some blacks.

ive done it bu it takes time for the residual old chalk to slowly deminish.. depending on what color your switching to it can effect it.. i wouldnt switch from red to light purple since red is a permanent color and light purple is for temporary layout when having a color that doesnt stain is extremely important on say a carpeted floor or cedar deck
