Tip On Using Tape Around the House

Casa Quickie: Tricks of the Tape

We all know that tape can be quite handy, especially good old duct tape! While it's obviously handy for keeping items in their place, it can also be used for crafty art projects or painting perfect lines. Add one more job to tape's resumé — scratch protector.

Next time you've got to do some handiwork around brass, gold, or silver fixtures, don't ruin them with wrench marks. Before you start in on your project, wrap some tape (painting tape works well because it comes off easily) around the pipe or fixture and then use your tools. The tape will take the hit and can be easily removed when the job is done.
