Advantages: Works, useful
I have always used blue-tack, for as long as I can remember. I remember, when I was younger, I went through packets and packets of tick-tack- sticking up Steps posters all over my bedroom - you couldn't see the walls.
There are many ways you can use Blue-Tack. It is great for sticking posters on the wall or sticking ornaments down to stop them falling over or being knocked over. It is also useful at Christmas time when you want to stick cards and decorations up.
One thing which I like about Blue-Tack is the fact that it isn't messy. You don't have to wash your hands after using it, plus it is safe, which means that it is suitable for young children.
The Tack is very easy to use - simply pull a piece off (it is quite stretchy) and place it on whatever you need to stick up (poster etc). You only need a small (generally I put a piece in each corner of a poster, although you can put more (in the middle etc) if you really want to stick it down.
Be very careful that you do not get it on the carpet, otherwise it will get stuck. It gets a bit like chewing gum - not good, and it will ruin the carpet (as I found out when I was a child). However, if you need to get an old piece of the wall, just stick a new piece to it, and pull and it will come off! Genius!
Blue-Tack is reusable and so it is not very often that you will 'run out' of Blue Tack and need to buy some more, because it lasts a really long time. And around £1 for a small packet, it is definitely worth the money. Also, you only need a small amount, so once you buy one packet you won't need to buy another for a few years - well in my case anyway, I don't really use it that often. It is funny, because if you have some you don't need it and then as soon as you actually need some you never have it. So it is a good item to keep in your desk drawer.
Also, unlike sellotape - it won't look messy because it is on the back of whatever you are putting up. So it looks tidy too! :)
I would definitely recommend Blue-Tack.
