The Many Uses of Duct Tape
Ahh duct tape... The strong sticky friend of anyone with... uh... broken ducts?
At least that's what I guess it's mainly used for. But how often do you need to actually fix a duct!? C'mon. I'm willing to bet a case of beer (because that's the Canadian thing to do) that 95% of the duct tape you've ever purchased in your life actually went to other uses.
It is indeed great for repairs! But for many things! Just last week I managed to repair a hole in my jean pocket and a broken window on my car... just using duct tape. Worked like a charm!
But its uses go beyond even inept sewing capabilities and lazy automotive repair. Duct tape is so versitle and easy-to-use that there's bound to be hundreds of creative ways to put it to work.
There is. And you've shared some with me that I couldn't dream of. Check out your stories! (Click play below the photo)
Some stuff from Facebook:
Katie Krebs When I was is college my friends stayed up really late after I had gone to bed, and covered my entire doorway to my dorm room with a duct tape wall. So when I opened my door half asleep in the morning I was so stunned and disoriented! Then they yelled at me to run through it and had put the kitchen stools in front of it so I ran through and bailed hard :( not my best wake up!
Cory Clift Every year at Crystal Mountain, we have a cardboard and duct tape race on our family fun day, some people come up with very creative tobbogans and racers! One year I made a cardboard and duct tape snowboard!
