3 Uses For Duct Tape

Kudos to my sister DS for sending me a great article about a rowdy airline passenger who was finally subdued with duct tape.

You see in our house growing up my father was a huge believer in duct tape. It was like aspirin. Any problem you may have had or have, somehow or someway could be taken care of with duct tape.

As a public service to those who didn't have such an upbringing, here are 3 uses for duct tape that you may not be aware of.

1- Wart removal. If you have a wart, place a piece of duct tape on top and in a few days the wart will disappear.

2- Hand bags and wallets. DS tells me that at the Pike Place market in Seattle artists make handbags and wallets out of colored duct tape.

3-Use it as a musical instrument.

Feel free to add some ideas as well.

Well, there are tons of medical uses for duct tape. Including for blisters. I have a friend who can attest to this. For further medical remedies see the following site:

Juggling Frogs (link on my sidebar) has some great pictures of her son in his duct tape outfits.

We once put together our old Pontiac T1000 with duct tape. That was much cheaper than paying for auto body repair.

Leora:I'm surprised AK's father didn't do that.

I know this sounds crazy, but I actually used some recently to secure an air duct! Is there anything it can't do?

Aaron--I didn't mean it as an insult.
