Most people have duct tape in their tool boxes. Why? That super-sticky, cloth/scrim-backed tape is extremely useful. However, there are more uses for the tape than just fixing something that’s a little bit torn or putting together sturdy cardboard boxes. There are endless things that you can do with it.
For just a few bucks at your local hardware store, you can buy duct tape in a variety colors. Now, you can use the stuff in a variety of genius ways.
