You probably know that using painter’s tape where the walls meet the trim is a good way to get professional looking results in your painting job with clean straight lines. However, you might not be aware that the type of tape you use can make a big difference as well.

ScotchBlue Painter’s Tape for Delicate Surfaces is perfect for taping freshly painted surfaces, since it:

  • Comes off easily for up to 60 days.
  • Has Edge-Lock technology for cleaner lines.

ScotchBlue for Delicate Surfaces is available at The Home Depot. Watch this video to find out more.

Jodi Marks: Well, I’m going over my checklist for my painting project. And I like this little list, cause it’s got everything on it that I’ll need once I get home. Now, there is one thing on this list I think a lot of people overlook, and you might just be one of them, and that’s painter’s tape. And I can’t stress to you how important it is to use painter’s tape.

Now I’m over here in the painter’s tape aisle, and I have to say I’m pretty particular with this one right here. This is ScotchBlue. And what I like about it best is it’s got this edge lock technology. So what that means is you’re going to get sharp, straight lines every time. They’re going to be nice, crisp and clean.

Another thing about this particular one is that it can stay on the surface up to 60 days before you have to remove it. Now I know you’re not going to do that, but if you did at least you’ve got that big window.

Now there’s another thing about this too, is that it can be applied to delicate surfaces and when you take it off it’s not going to leave a residue and it’s not going to peel the paint off. Again, this is just a great little thing to have on hand to make sure that when you do your painting projects, it’s gonna look like a professional did it every time.
