Bostik Blu Tack
Advantages: Sticks well onto surfaces and durable.
Blue tack comes in handy when you need to display a picture a child has drawn at school or nursery school and arrived home with it to give you it to display.
It comes housed in a cardboard packaging and it is a light blue putty which is wrapped in a plastic sheet to keep it dry. I have had my pack for quite a while and the putty is still dry and still
The putty is durable and all you have to do is to use the amount you need to stick your child's picture onto a surface and then just slightly rub it gently so it softens slightly and then just stick it to the surface or the back of the picture and it sticks well indeed on the surface and doesn't fall from it if you press it enough against the surface. For displaying pictures only a small blob of the putty is needed and it is enough but for maybe cardboard to stick somewhere, then a little bit more of the putty would be needed because it is heavier but it sticks cardboard well onto surfaces too. Doesn't mark surfaces.
I have used this product at Christmas time to put cards on my cupboard door in my hallway, I receive a lot of cards and I usually put the friends cards etc on the door in the hallway where my main entrance is and I can see them and not clutter my lounge with cards.
It is easy to shape it and it sticks well if the surface is dry. It is easy to pull away from the surfaces and it doesn't ruin it or make a mark etc. it can be used again and moved to another surface if need be and it is good for children to put up posters in their bedroom.
Handy if you want to write a shopping list on a piece of paper for when you go shopping later that day or few days later and pop it onto a kitchen cupboard door where you can see it before you go shopping and then just pull it from the blu tack.
It is cheap to buy and it costs anywhere from 70p up to a couple of pounds depending on the size you want to buy and it is available in supermarkets or stationery's. always handy to have some of this in a draw for when you need to stick something onto a surface.
After a while the putty becomes less sticky and then can just be thrown away in the bin and a fresh piece can be pulled from the packet. So it can be used over and over again.
I recommend it for anyone who doesn't want to spoil their cupboard doors or walls and for anyone with children or grandchildren who always like to bring home pictures they have drawn for you to display around your home.
Good quality and good value for money and lasts for a long time and can be used again and again. Will keep buying this product and is handy to have around the home.
I rate it 5 stars.
Summary: Sticks well.
