Clever Repurposing Idea Uses A Bread Tag As A Tape End Finder


Whether you're using heavy-duty tape to help with a paint project around the house or you're using it to label and get organized, it can get pretty annoying when the adhesive sticks to itself and you have to start scraping at the end of the roll just to get it going again. Luckily, Whole Living Daily found a great away to avoid losing your mark with tape.

Simply attach a bread tag to the end of the piece and this will keep it from getting stuck. It's kind of genius considering how much time we spend looking for the tape's end. Trash Backwards also agrees that this life hack is definitely a time-saver.

We use masking and duct tape all the time for bigger projects around the house. So the quicker we're done fiddling with the sticky stuff, the quicker we can get back to our DIYs.
