Scotch Post-it Wall-Safe Tape

1

Yesterday, after I carefully peeled off a strip of 3M Painter's Masking Tape and saw that it had taken off some old paint, I thought to myself, how is it that every tape touted as "safe for paint" isn't?

Then it occurred to me that the only adhesive backing I've ever used that never strips paint is that on 3M Post-its.

I was gonna put out a Twitter blast saying so when it occurred to me to search Amazon first, and Bob's your uncle.

From Amazon:

Features and Details:

• Safe for painted drywall, stainless steel, tile, wood, mirrors, and windows up to 30 days

• Made with Post-it brand technology for clean and easy removal, just like a Post-it note

• Sticks securely, removes cleanly

• Sticks and resticks

Six 3/4" x 800" rolls that — bonus — fit any standard Scotch tape dispenser: $22.18.
