A tiny life-enhancement: Tear-by-hand packaging tape

23 July 2020

I’ve been sending a number of packages these days—knitted gifts and so forth. And I’ve been so grateful for one little product I thought I’d sing its praises here.

It’s Scotch Tear by Hand Packaging Tape. It’s clear shipping tape, just under two inches wide, and you can tear it by hand.

Let that sink in. No grabbing scissors while you’re trying to keep the tape from sticking back on itself. No annoying dispenser whose teeth might scratch you. You roll out the amount you need and tear it with your hands.

Every time I use it, it makes me smile. We all need those things in our lives!

Brilliant.. some more effortless. This tape or narrower gets me by in Winter. I tape up many air draughts and cracks around the house.. instant blocker!
