Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Tape does not adhere well. I used the tape in two ways: 1. to seal up the cracks around my windows inside and out for a job that will kick up a lot of dust outside. Within the first few hours and even before the dust started blowing, the tape has been peeling off. It is stuck to a metal frame and also to the glass on the window. The tape does not even adhere to itself. 2. the tape was used to tape a sheet of plastic over a window in a door. The tape is touching the plastic and the door. The tape is again, peeling off the door. Again, where I chose to overlap the tape, it is not even sticking to the tape. In both cases, the edges and the ends are peeling up. I will not be purchasing this tape for any re-construction or painting jobs again. August 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This product along with all the other ones I bought that day were perfect for my painting project. This product along with all the other ones I bought that day were perfect for my painting project. This product was the best one out of the bunch that I bought. It was used to protect the wall and appliances during the painting phase of my project. Could not have done a better job without it. June 10, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Scotchblue vs. Green (ribbit!) I'm a big fan of taping off when painting; I'm not great at "cutting in" with just a paintbrush, so using painters tape gives me an extra measure of comfort and enables me to get a more professional-looking finish. That being said, I've used both Scotchblue and the "green" tape. We're just completing a 6-month long interior paint project, while completing other renovations, and would like to share what I've learned about both brands. Scotchblue Pros - It comes in varying widths; tears easily; cuts easily; for a variety of surfaces; offers a specific tape for newly painted surfaces (wait 24 hours after painting before applying); easily available locally; when accidently twisted or folded against itself, pulls apart relatively easily, enabling you to save and use that section. Cons - it's relatively expensive (compared to lesser brands); it tears too easily sometimes (taping off long areas, such as along ceiling/wall lines, are best accomplished in one long unbroken piece). Care needs to be taken when taping off long sections. As well, when removing, it will tear easily, so if you're, say, taping off between ceiling and top of wall, you'll do best to use the ladder to remove it. Green (ribbit!) Pros - comes in varying widths; it's packaged in a clear, reusable plastic container to keep it clean during storage; it's sturdier than Blue, so its not prone to tearing when taping off long sections; good adhesion. Comes off the wall without tearing. Cons - can be expensive - it's usually within a dollar or so of Blue; sometimes cheaper, sometimes more expensive; perhaps too much adhesion - if the tape twists or folds onto itself, it's usually too difficult to pull it apart, and that section is wasted, so use care and don't pull out too much at any one time; instructions on the container recommend waiting 3 (three) days before taping off newly painted surfaces, so if you're in a hurry to finish (trim, etc.), you may want to use Blue. IN COMPARISON - I've found Green (ribbet) to have better paint blocking than Scotchblue - lines are crisper and there's very little bleed-through. With Green, bleed-through tends to be the result of minor defects in the surface: bumps, etc. I usually run a putty knife along the tape edge after applying to ensure good adhesion. Blue tends to have more bleed-through, even after using a putty knife. Even on the smoothest surface, I've had bleed-through with Scotchblue. As for cheaper brands, I've used them previously, and don't like them. Some are difficult to remove and others just don't have the blocking power of the two top brands. August 6, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by You're almost better off using nothing. This tape leaks like a BP oil rig. You're better off using nothing at all. I have to assume it's inability to keep paint from getting under it is directly tied to the fact that it doesn't stick to anything. Well it does manage to stick to one surface, much like saran wrap, the only thing this tape seems to stick to is itself. I'm kicking myself for not just going somewhere else to buy the frog tape I usually buy when HD was out of stock. Half way through my paint project I pulled this off the molding and just used an edging tool. Waste of time, waste of money. Do not buy. December 10, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Not just for painting This tape is great for more than keeping a straight edge when painting. Holds well and doesn't strip the paint or leave a residue. May 13, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great tape This tape was easy to apply and remove. No drips underneath it..adhered very well. May 13, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good The surface must be cleaned for it to work. Once it's clean works great May 13, 2014
