Removing Lint When You Don’t Have a Lint Roller
Have a big job for a lint roller, but worried the one you already have on hand just won’t cut it? Missing a lint roller altogether?
No matter what your lint-roller situation, we’ve got you covered. And the good news is, all this project takes is two ingredients you probably have at home: a paint roller and some (ideally good quality) duct tape.
The process of making your very own, super-powered lint roller is simple — just wrap the tape, sticky side out, around any paint roller, and then get to work on your clothes, couch, or virtually any other fabric you can dream up.
Masking tape, painter’s tape, or basically anything you have on hand will work, too. On a big or small roller. You’ll want to make sure to spot test first, especially if you’re using it on something nice, since sometimes cheap duct tape can leave gummy residue on fabric.
Is Your Business Using the Right Packaging Tape?
There are two primary types of packing tape that are used to seal cartons: plastic pressure-sensitive tape and paper water-activated tape. Each has different physical properties, methods of application, appearance, and performance. It is important that companies go beyond simple decision drivers like cost and availability, and consider how these attributes can impact their operations.Plastic Pressure-Sensitive Tape
Plastic pressure-sensitive tape (PST) is what is referred to as a “surface mount” type of tape. This carton sealing tape is manufactured by applying a dry adhesive to a plastic film. Both the adhesive, which can have many different strength formulations, and the film, which comes in a variety of widths, are petroleum-based materials.
Pressure-sensitive tape is generally applied with a hand-held “tape gun.” The pressure applied after the tape is dispensed, typically with the fingers or palm as a follow up, causes the tape to adhere to the surface of the carton.
Plastic pressure-sensitive tape can be further divided into moving tape and shipping tape or packaging tape.
