Use Microwave To Refresh Masking Tape

16EmailPrintFollowSave

If your masking tape comes off in little pieces, zap the roll of tape in the microwave 10-20 seconds and it will work as it should.

I will be giving this a try soon. I have thrown away so many rolls of tape thinking they were too old. Thanks for the tip.:)

What a great idea thanks, for sharing it with us - I will be doing this from now on instead of throwing it away which I do hate to do.

Great tip! I have a lot of that. Usually just toss it out. :-)

What a great tip! I have been so frustrated with masking tape, that I turned instead to freezer tape, which is very similar but seems to be problem free. I suspect I might have a hard time finding freezer tape the next time I need a new roll, but I have an old roll of masking tape I found in a closet. I was dreading using it, but maybe it won't be so bad if I try this tip. Thanks, fossil1955!

I was putting away my Christmas decorations & needed to seal a box. Got my masking tape & sure enough it pulled off in pieces. Then I remembered your "microwave" tip. I thought what have I got to lose? If it works I am saved, if it doesn't I would be tossing the roll anyway. Well, thank you, thank you for a wonderful tip that worked. My husband thought I was nuts, but I showed him.

Greetings:
Does this work well with packing tape? We always get the rolls that start good then start lifting off in sections.

Um, I don't have a microwave (by choice). Do you think warming it in my steamer might do the same trick?
