ScotchBlue Painter’s Tape: It’s Not Just for Painting!

Everyone knows that ScotchBlue Painter’s Tape is a great way to get nice straight edges and to keep paint away from certain areas when you’re painting, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to uses for ScotchBlue Painter’s Tape. My husband recently tiled a large portion of the floor in our house. He had to do it in sections since it was a large area, so whenever we didn’t want people to step on a tile that had just been laid, we put ScotchBlue Painter’s Tape on it!

Since ScotchBlue Painter’s Tape can be removed cleanly without leaving behind a sticky residue, this makes it the perfect tool for spring cleaning and organizing projects around the house.
