Keep cat claws off your couch and your flowers standing a little longer with these handy new uses for tape.
Twenty-nine raw materials go into the adhesive used to make transparent tape. Thankfully, using the sticky stuff is a lot simpler than producing it. Discover five handy new ways to make tape for work you.
2. Prevent Salt and Pepper Spills
Many salt and pepper shakers, especially ceramic ones, have to be filled through a hole in the bottom. Before you refill one of these shakers, tape over the holes on top. That way you won’t have any wastefull spills when you turn the shaker upside down to fill it.
Also, remember to tape the tops when moving to a new home, or even when you’re just transporting the shakers to and from a picnic.
3. Make Candles Fit Snuggly
Don’t let loose candles spoil the romantic mood or cause a fire at your next candlelight dinner. If the candles don’t fit snuggly into the holder, wrap layers of tape around their bottom edges until they fit just right.
5. Keep Flowers Upright In Vase
To keep cut flowers from sagging in their vase, crisscross several pieces of transparent tape across the mouth of the vase, leaving spaces where you can insert the flowers. The flowers will look perky and fresh for a few extra days.
