Just an additional comment to the DOTW - never buy cheap double sided tape
- I usually buy the Sellotape brand from the local supermarket (which means I slip it into the trolley and the 'house' pays for it). Recently they changed brands there, and I am regretting even buying the first roll, and I still have one roll to go.
As our income is limited now we are retired, I buy standard width tape, and then cut it in half as I go as a thrift measure.
I had never had to clean my scissor blades so often - the glue sticks to them something terrible, the backing paper tears, and sometimes the tape itself will tear. Utter frustration!
So glad that I was told that rubbing alcohol cleans the gunk off the blades.
