How do you remove the sticky gum left behind after tape is peeled off?
Getting rid of sticky gum left behind from sticky tape can be a bit challenging, but there are a few methods you can try:
Use Ice: Place a few ice cubes in a plastic bag and hold it against the gum for a few minutes. This will harden the gum, making it easier to scrape off with a plastic scraper or a butter knife. Be careful not to scratch the surface.
Use Smooth Peanut Butter: Try applying a small amount of peanut butter to the gum and let it sit for a few minutes. The oils in the peanut butter will help break down the gum, making it easier to remove. Then, use a plastic scraper or a butter knife to gently scrape off the gum.
Use Oil: Apply a small amount of cooking oil, baby oil, or rubbing alcohol to the gum and let it sit for a few minutes. Then, use a plastic scraper or your fingers to gently remove the gum.
Use Vinegar: Soak a cloth in vinegar and place it over the gum. Let it sit for a few minutes, then gently peel off the gum.
Use a Commercial Gum Remover: There are various commercial gum removers available that you can use to remove sticky gum. Follow the instructions on the label carefully.
It's important to be gentle when removing sticky gum to avoid damaging the surface underneath. Test any cleaning solution or gum remover on a small, inconspicuous area of the surface first to ensure that it won't cause any damage.
What is the difference between General Purpose Packaging Tape and Economy Packaging Tape ?
The main difference between general purpose packaging tape and economy packaging tape lies in their quality and performance.
General purpose packaging tape is typically made from higher-grade materials, offering better adhesive strength and durability. It provides reliable sealing for a wide range of packaging applications, including shipping boxes, cartons, and packages that require a secure seal. It is often resistant to tearing, moisture, and temperature changes, ensuring that the package remains intact during transit.
On the other hand, economy packaging tape is a more budget-friendly option that sacrifices some performance features for cost-effectiveness. It may have a lower adhesive strength and may be more prone to tearing or losing its grip over time. Economy packaging tape is suitable for lighter-duty applications or situations where a temporary seal is sufficient.
In summary, general purpose packaging tape is designed for more demanding and long-lasting packaging needs, while economy packaging tape provides a more affordable solution for less critical or short-term packaging requirements.
