==Bostick Blu Tac==
Blu Tac is something that I would class as a must have item in every home. Since having a child it seems that there is always something to stick up on the wall and Blu Tac is the best product for this job.
I tend to always pick up a pack of Blu Tac when in my local Poundland store although a pack really has lasted us for ages. For the £1 price tag you get a good slab (60 grams) of the sticky blue coloured product for your money and a little bit of the rubbery product really does go a long way. I recently bought some because the stuff we had seemed to have collected a fair few hairs and bits of fluff as it had been in the junk drawer in the kitchen for a good while.
The Blu Tac has been around for over 30 years now and having had a look on the Blu Tac website it states that originally the Blu Tac was white but they added the blue colouring so that it wasn't mistaken for a child sweet! Of course now a days you can indeed get the white version of this product - aptly named White Tac! White Tac is also a product we have used and I found it really helpful for stickign plastic snow flakes on my windows at Christmas as you can't see the adhesive.
The Blu Tac is basically a sticky adhesive rubber which is non toxic and reusable and although I have often tried cheaper versions I will always revert back to the classic Blu Tac as this is purely the best product of this kind. It sticks posters up on the wall well and it really never seems to fall off unless the Blu Tac is old or hasn't been applied well.
All in all I can't really fault the Blu Tac as a product. It does its job well and lasts a long time. The fact that it can be re-used means that it is not something that needs to be bought very often as a pack really lasts a long time and a little goes a long way. You can't use imitations as nothing sticks as well as the classic and original Blu Tac.
I think it has to be a top 5 out of 5 star rating product and I would certainly recommend it to everyone and anyone!
I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you
Many thanks for taking the time to read.
Summary: a great product
