Tape it Up (Guest Post)

Tape it Up
What can  you do with a roll of tape? Quite a bit, actually. There are many types of tape, and tons of uses for each type that you have in your home. If you’re interested in making your home more organized, use tape. If you want to keep things in tact, use tape. If you want to fix parts of your car, use tape. People have even gone as far as making prom dresses out of tape. It’s about more than packing boxes. You can do so much with tape that the possibilities are endless.

Using Decorative Tape for Organization

Decorative tape is a great way to keep things organized around your home. Label the plastic containers in your kitchen pantry to help keep things in place around the kitchen. The garage is another place that people have a hard time staying organized in your home. Use the decorative tape to mark jars of screws and bolts. Put red decorative tape on things that the kids aren’t allowed to touch at all in the garage or around the home.

The Many Possibilities of Duct Tape

Throughout the years, duct tape has been used for countless number of projects and home improvements. People have made prom dresses and even fixed things on space shuttles using 3M Dual Lock duct tape. How can you use it in your life? Well, you can use it to fix a broken windshield or fix leaks in tubes under the hood of your card.

Scotch Tape for Life’s Little Things

If a piece of glass breaks, wrap some scotch tape around your hand, sticky side out to pick up the little shards of glass that your broom may miss. You can use the same tactic to pick up dog hair from your clothes or furniture. If you have small cracks in your credit cards or windows, you can use scotch tape to fix it up. That way, you credit card will still work and insects won’t fly in through the window. You can even use tape to fix the ends of your frayed shoelace.

What will you use your tape for? Find new, creative uses for the tape you have lying around your home. There are tons of things that you can do if you just start thinking outside of the box a little bit. Whether it’s decorative tape, duct tape or scotch tape, you can find a variety of uses for the stuff around your home.
