Duct Tape: The Ultimate Bored Person's Savior

Duct Tape Mania!

Duct tape: use it to fix air ducts, car bumpers, keep side view mirrors on, get rid of lint on clothing, keep couches intact, keep your little sibling quiet or in one spot, or whatever else you need to keep together, out, shut, up or any other direction you can think of.  These are all things people generally use duct tape for and why not? It’s strong, water-proof, reliable and that unforgettable grey color! And if you never cared for grey or wished your duct tape matched your car, couch, curtains or whatever you fixed with duct tape that wasn’t duct tape grey, duct tape comes in lots of different colors and patterns.
