However, I have a lot of duct tape stashed around my house, and if I were to seal my leaky ducts, it seems that is what I would use for the project. But, unfortunately for most duct tape manufacturers, almost nobody recommends using duct tape to seal ducts because eventually the adhesive dries out and the tape begins to peel.
So what good is duct tape if you can’t use it on your ducts?
At www.ducttapefashion.com you will find a myriad of uses for the much maligned tape: Duct tape wallets, duct tape baseball caps, duct tape roses (great for Valentines’ Day), duct tape bracelets, duct tape purses, etc. There is actually a Duck® Tape Club for fans to share a nearly endless amount of uses. Of course, the clever folks at Duck® Tape will happily remind you at the fan site that their brand also comes in more than 20 colors.
My favorite application was sighted in Carrollton, Texas, while driving to work one morning. An injured traffic light, swaying in the wind, was held together with an amazing amount of the silver stuff. Lovely.
What’s your favorite application for duct tape? And, please don’t tell me it’s for ducts.
