Bostik Blu Tack
Advantages: Good quality material
Disadvantages: Goes hard eventually
Blu tack is extremely useful and has a multitude of purposes in the home and office. I always have a little ball of it in my office drawer and a packet in the home. There is nothing quite like office boredom and you get to make little Blu Tack dice!
==Price and availability==
The cost of a packet of this lovely stuff is around £1.20 depending where you buy it from. You can get it from supermarkets or from office shops such as Staples.
This is a soft blue putty that is sticky but does not leave any residue. It can be use to hold paper to the wall so it has quite a lot of stickiness to it. The Blu Tack can be used and used again but eventually it does become quite brittle and needs throwing away. You can mould the putty and play with it in your hands.
The Blu tack can be used for a number of purposes. At christmas time I use it to stick the Christmas cards I receive on to the kitchen door and display them. The blu tack is great because it does not damage the walls, paintwork or the cards themselves. As a teenager I used it to hold my posters of take that to my walls and it did not damage the flowery wallpaper my mum was so proud of.
I use it in the office too for displaying notices to the rest of the team. Blu tack is one of those things that goes walk about in the office as people just like to play with it and quite a lot of people in the office have little men made of Blu tack sat on their monitors.
My colleague has a massive ball of Blu tack that she uses as a pen holder so there many different ways to use it. When you use it to hang pictures and posters you do not need much at all and for this reason a packet can last you absolutely ages! ... As long as no one steals it.
