WHAT IS IT?
A blue putty that you use to stick things together or for putting posters up.
WHAT I THINK
Blu Tack is the only effective putty, there are a few different brands but I always buy this original one. I use it mostly for putting posters up and pictures my daughters have brought home from school. The Blu Tack comes in a solid sheet and you rip pieces off as you need it. The putty is reusable so when one of my daughters changes a poster I peel the Blu Tack off and use it again to put the new poster up.
It goes soft when you knead it between your fingers and holds paper weight posters without ever falling but can be pulled off the wall if you use it to hang heavier card. I have got a calander my daughter made at school for Christmas 2011 so it is nearly 2 years old, I put it up with one big piece of Blu Tack at the top and it has never fallen down in all that time.
It lasts for a long time but will eventually lose stickiness but this is only if you keep peeling it off and reusing it, if you put it up and leave it then it will hold for a long time.
Blu Tack is quite cheap and only costs about £1.50. This is a very good price because it is so useful and lasts, I have got a lump of it on my desk and keep some in my works cosmetics case as it is very useful for keeping bobby pins to hand.
5 Dooyoo Stars.
Summary: I can put my posters up without them falling back down again!
