Use Blue Painter's Tape

Always use blue painter's tape, not regular masking tape to mask areas when you are painting. Blue tape peels off easily, masking tape often doesn't.

Painter´s tape can be expensive. You can still use masking tape, just make sure it is paper-backed and not plastic coated. Peel off strips, and holding the sticky side towards you, lightly press it against your clothes. It will lose some of its stickiness and be unlikely to peel off paint when removed from the walls.

you should NOT let it dry for that long actually some recommend removing when stripes a finished painting and some wait just until the paint is almost dry.......better luck next time!!
