      I prefer Blu Tack White!

      Blu Tack is something which is common and found in most households, but were you aware of white tack?

      It is marketed as 'Blu Tack white' - and, like Blue Tack, claims to be 'Clean & safe', 'won't dry out' and has '1000s of uses'.

      It comes as a flat sheet between two pieces of what appears to be like greaseproof paper, which means it doesn't get stuck. It is then inside a cardboard packet.

      On the packet, I am told that it..
      Holds up: posters, cards, paintings, decorations, maps, messages and much more
      Holds down: ornaments, telephones, photographs in albums, screws to screwdrivers, model parts during construction or painting
      and also cleans fluff from fabric and dirt from keyboards.

      I generally use it to stick thing up or down - I'm not so keen on the idea of using it to clean my keyboard! After pulling a bit off and quickly rolling it a little between your fingers - it's ready for use. I find that it sticks things up really well, with little being used, which means that one packet seems to go a long way.

      When it does need to be removed, I've found that it does this much better than the blue version. It rarely leaves a mark, and unlike blue Blu Tack, I've never had any remove paint from a wall, which is something I've always hated about Blu Tack.

      The price is very reasonable, at usually around £1 per packet, but I often find it on offer for half price in Tesco. When compared with the price of original Blu Tack, I find the white version tends to be slightly cheaper.

      The packet tells me it is 'not suitable for children under 36 months as it can be made into small parts' - but I'm not so sure I'd let a young child over the age of this use it either. I often think it resembles chewing gum!
