The magical, multifunctional properties of painter's tape
Jen in Toronto loves her blue tape! For good reason:
We use painter's tape a lot around our house, and we take a roll with us when we travel. It makes a great impromptu electrical outlet cover. We use it to 're-seal' packages of crackers and boxes and bags of all kinds; you can also use it to keep diapers closed if the tabs break. It makes an okay temporary sink-stopper. Tape paper to the floor or other surface so it won't move when kids are trying to draw. [See stencil tip in today's link roundup! -- Ed] Create a hopscotch grid on any floor without having to clean up chalk marks. Best of all we put it over the speakers on musical children's toys and it magically lowers the volume! Put on a double layer for extra sound-muffling power, or just cover half the speaker if you only need a little tone down.
Anyone else have other uses for painter's tape?
