Duct tape

For the do-it-yourselfer duct tape is a must.  From patching truck seats to patching toys this tough, handy tape holds together many things.  Check out Wikipedia for a quick and funny history of duct tape.

But one of the drawbacks to duct tape is the residue left behind when it is removed. If the residue is not cleaned off (and it can be dificult to do) dirt will adher to it making a real mess.   Now comes Scotch with Tough duct tape which is a no reside duct tape for six months.  This will be great for taping down or bundling cords.  They also make a transparent duct tape.

Next time you purchase duct tape give these a try.
