Did you see the couple that made their tux and prom dress out of duct tape?

I'll see if I can find it!

Leave it to those clever Californians! (the driver's license tipped me off) I'll bet I could make a duct tape evening bag, maybe with a silver chain strap to go with my duct tape sandals. I'm off to WalMart to get a couple of rolls.

You can use duct tape to remove warts too. :)

Maybe, given the amount of credit card debt, make it so you can't get the card out of the wallet?:)

Sheryl, yes my doctor did tell me to apply duct tape to my sons planter wart.

-also my oil cap fell off and I had duct tape in my car and I taped it went to the junk yard to get one and the guy laughed so hard he said here no charge.

-Who said women cant think on a moments notice. Dont ask where the original cap went because I have no Idea.

It's cut the oxygen off to the wart, or atleast that's how my doc explained it.

You tear off enough tape to cover the wart. Leave it on for a week, then peel of the tape and scrape the wart. Then reapply tape for another week. You keep repeating till the wart is completely gone.

It works, my son gets them often and we use the colored duct tape for him....I had a nasty one on my finger about 6 months ago, and used it...not the most glamorous thing to wear on your finger, but I tried everything...My mom was the one that told me to do it...Mom's knows best!! Wart was gone in a week or so....

In rock climbing, when there is a very small hold, you can put a "sky hook" on it.

This is a small, sharp, but very strong hook that is the right shape so the weight is more or less under the tip when you pull on it's handle.

Unfortunitly, they can slide off when there isn't enough force on them.

So, what can solve this problem? Man's best friend (no not a dog) ductape!

The tape hlds it in place until enough pressure is on so it holds itself.
