You’ve probably heard that duct tape has many uses. With the durability and stickiness of duct tape, it’s become a common household item.

1) Just recently, I removed a splinter from my foot with duct tape. It worked great.  This could also work, if you stepped on a small piece of glass.

2) Duct tape is also great for repairing the bottoms of suitcases that take a beating at the airport. Use black duct tape, and the repair will go unnoticed.

3) For a construction business, duct tape is a great way to tape up the ends of pipe. This helps to keep the pipe clean, until it’s final connection. Duct tape also closes up the pipe, so no small animals can get into the pipe.

6) Use duct tape to reinforce sporting equipment, such as tennis rackets or hockey sticks.

8.) Duct tape would be good for repairing a vinyl seat, whether in your car, or in the kitchen.

9) Often, you’ll see duct tape used to temporarily repair a broken tail light.

10) Duct tape could also be used to fix a rip on a tent.
