I am always on the lookout for tape I can use around the house. Clear tape does not always seem to do the trick, and I do not like the sticky residue left behind by duct tape.
One of the claims of Gaffer Tape is that it does not leave behind sticky residue. I had to try this out for myself on various surfaces around my house. My family gave me crazy looks as I cut pieces of the tape and placed the tape on different surfaces in my house. I left the tape there for several days. It did not leave behind any residue. I love this! Most times, tapes leave behind that residue so you have to spend extra time cleaning the surface trying to remove it. I no longer have to worry about that with this tape.
My husband used the tape in the garage. I really don’t know what he used it for because I rarely enter his “man cave,” but he said he liked it.
Gaffer Tape sticks well to surfaces. I put some of it around a vitamin bottle and ran water over it for at least 30 seconds. The tape did not come off until I removed it; no water was underneath the tape.
We just finished using some tape to hold together a music stand so my daughter could practice her instrument for band. We had no idea the stand was broken, and the nearest place to get a stand is 30 minutes away. We will wait until this weekend to get a new one. For now, the tape is doing the job!
