On a Gift Box make designs or stripes then you can add decorative touches to the wrapped surface. This makes a great Holiday present. At Christmas time use duct tape to hang your lights and removing will be easier. You can use duct tape to hem jeans that are to long for you and will go through a few washes okay. Have a bag of dorittos or chips you can't close use duct tape to close the bag. You can also use duct tape to rid yourself of pet hairs. Need to replace a vacuum hose because of a break use duct tape to tape it up. There must be lots of other things duct tape can be used for. Can you think of anything else you might use Duck Tape for?

There is some folklore that if it is applied to warts it will remove them-I tried this once and it appeared to work.

Wow now that is something I hadn't heard of before, I will have to remember that as it is very interesting.

I use duct tape to seal up anything that needs sealing. It works fine to make sure you don't have any leakage around a window AC unit, for instance.

Another good use for duct tape or maybe even for insulating a window or something like that.

Those are all good uses. A friend of mine made a duct tape wallet.

Duct tape is really for book bindings, very pretty designs. Dresses I would love to see those.

I should definitely remember this to clear up the fur that my long haired cat leaves behind. I use rubber gloves but duct tape sounds better.

Duct tape is a lifesaver. I used it to tape parts of my moms shade in her car.

I received a box full of duct tapes, I have to say that I do not like to use sticky things that always leave some glue leftover, at least this is the case of products sold in Europe. They are still in the box.
