Uses for Duct Tape

April 8, 2013

I found myself wasting too much time, tape and energy placing labels on my frozen and fridge food containers. I bought WHITE duct tape and use a Sharpie to write contents on "labels" made from the tape. The ink comes off easily with soapy water for re-use, the tape remains securely on the lid "forever".


I keep small precut "labels' stuck inconspicuously behind my cabinet door and can pull one off for immediate use on new lids. For fridge items, I can read the label tops without moving items around when searching for the mayo.

I have a plastic (not fiberglass) tub in my 1973 mobile home. It is cracked and water leaks out underneath. After trying several other ways to fix the cracks that didn't work, in desperation, I tried clear duct tape. It worked! Now all the cracks are sealed and no more leaks.

Rolled up pieces of duct tape with the sticky side out are an easy way to monitor where insects might be if you do not see them during the day. I like to keep them under the bed, in the bathroom, and in other places where they might be that I don't look often.
