Duct Tape

First invented in the 1920s, Duct Tape was developed further during World War II by a division of the Johnson & Johnson company. Duct Tape is a strong adhesive tape with a cloth- or scrim-back, often coated with polyethylene. While soldiers were the first to use the product, Duct Tape was quickly adopted in other areas, to make shoes shoes stronger, for wrapping steel cables or electrical conductors, and to wrap duct-work on furnaces.

How do you remove duct tape residue left behind after peeling off the tape from skin?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

You have a few options in all reality. If you use rubbing alcohol it will remove all traces but this would be a bit drying to the skin. Some toners will remove the residue, but Witch Hazel would remove it without altering the pH balance in your skin too much.

How do you get sticky residue off of cloth made by duct tape?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

AnswerYou would want to use something that dissolves the glue remnants without removing the stain. Try soaking the area with tung oil, Olde English oil or similar product. Let sit a few minutes and you should be able to gently scrape it off. Remove excess oil with a clean, dry cloth.

Paint thinner werx well for removing tape glue from painted or stained surfaces. Use a cloth with your pointed finger rubbing in circular motion.

How do you make duct tape shoes?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

First get the colors of duct tape that you want.

Then you get a piece of cardboard.

You trace your feet on the cardboard with a marker. Make sure they are spaced out.

Cut out the outline of your feet.

Then make a hole where the space between your first and second toes.

Next you have to put duct tape on the cardboard. AVOID COVERING THE HOLE.

Now you get a somewhat long piece of and you hotdog fold it.

Finally you thread the piece of tape throughout the hole.

Also don't forget to put a piece of tape at the bottom of the shoes so the tape stays together.

There, you have a duct tape flip flop.

hope that helped :)

Is it possible to make a duct tape dress?

User Avatar

Asked by Mmgirl00

If you do the math:

You generally need approximately 3 yards of fabric to make a dress, which is 108 inches x 54 inches.

  • Duct tape is usually 2 inches wide, and comes in a roll of 50 yards (which is 1800 inches).
  • If you have 1/4 of an inch of overlap on each side of the tape when you're making the dress (think of it as "seam allowance), you'll have 1.5 inches left. You'll need 36 rows of tape for 54 inches of fabric (because 54 / 1.5 = 36)
  • Each row will be 108 inches long.
  • 36 (rows of tape) x 108 (inches of fabric needed) = 3888 inches of tape.
  • Since each roll is 1800 inches, you will need at least 3 rolls of duct tape.

How to make duct tape wallet?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

First, you rip off two pieces of duct tape a little over 6" long. Then, put them horizontally and put an inch of the sticky side on the non sticky side of the other piece. Repeat. Then take the two giant pieces and put the two large sticky sides together. Repeat once again and you will have your two sides. Then connect those two pieces with duct tape on the bottom and on the two sides. And there you have it.

Alternate method.

First make 3 strips of duct tape, each slightly longer than a dollar. Lay one sticky side face up and lay another one on top of it also sticky side up, overlapping each other by about a centimenter. Then lay the third on top as well. Repeat this process a second time so you now have two large strips of duct tape. place one sticky side up and then place the other sticky side down on top of it. You should now have one large strip of duct tape with no sticky side at all. Repeat this entire process again so you now have two large non-sticky strips. Now, cut 12 peices of duct tape slightly smaller than half of the peices you previously made. Again, put them sticky side together so there is no sticky showing. You should now have two long strips and 6 shorter ones. Place the long one flat on a table. place a smaller piece on top of it to the left half of the strip close to the top. Tape it in place by using half a strip of duct tape to tape the bottom. Bottom only for now! Place the second smaller strip beneath the first so that only the top of the first is showing. Once agin, tape into place with half a strip of duct tape on the bottom. Do this one more time with a third. Then repeat this process to the oppostie side. Now, use another half strip of duct tape and place it directly down the middle of the long strip, which should partially secure the six smaller peices. Then, place this entire assembly on top of the other long strip and use a piece of duct tape to tape the right, left, and bottom sides. Make sure to leave the top open! This should also completely secure the six small strips. These will be card holders and the opening between the two large strips are for bills. Enjoy your wallet!

Yes it will, I suggest getting the Krylon brand of spray paint but any brand is fine as long as it say non-porous on the label on the back. The only downside to spray painting duct tape is that it will take a little longer to dry.
