Am I the only one getting fed up with duct tape? Answered

I wondered whether I'm the only one starting to grow sceptic of duct tape. It doesn't work that well, it can't reliably stick anything to a wall reliably for more than 6 months, and when you take it off (or it falls off), it leaves you with whatever you taped with nasty slime all over the place.

What are your views on duct tape?


They dont make it like they used to :P

DUCT TAPE IS AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Don't ever deny it's awesomness !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Duct tape is great for loads of bodges, and brilliant with card.

I always have a roll around the house, and usually chuck a roll in the car when going on holiday, "just in case".

I think its best used for stuff like wallets or hats, other than that, I pretty much agree with you...

...although it is good for tying up people...lol.

. Use the proper tool for the job. Duct tape is great stuff, but it can't do everything.

Almost never use it, terrible stuff. For long term, HVAC foil tape Short term Blue painters tape. Doubt I eveb have duct tape in the house.
