It depends what kind of plastic objects you have.  On PP and PET the
stabilo will hardly write. Other plastics, like PVC, tend to "suck
in" humidity and colors, which means that your writing will not be
removeable.  Without knowing what kind of plastic-objects you have,
it's impossible to say, if the stabilo is a good idea to make
markings. I rather doubt it.
