Advantages: works well and no bluenes
Disadvantages: still has the slight greasy mark
==UHU White Tack==
I am a big fan of blue tack as it does literally have so many uses. However at Christmas time when I was sticking up snowflakes cut out of paper that me and Jack had hand crafted I realised blue tack was just not going to look as pretty as using something that was white in colour.
In steps UHU's White Tack......
Everyone knows about Blue Tack and the wondrous things that it can do! But it seems that White Tack is far less common although this large pack of the stuff was pretty easy to find in my local Poundland (yes for £1) which is very good considering how much of the sticky stuff you get.
The product comes housed just as the Blue Tack does and this is in an outer cardboard sleeve type envelope which gives all the product information such as directions for use, ingredients and a lot of other jargon that really not many people would read or really need to read. Inside this there are two sheets of grease proof paper which work to protect the thin block of white tack inside.
The product doesn't really have any smell to it although the slight odour that it does have isn't the nicest of aromas but generally its not an item you would go around smelling and the whiff that there is, is not strong enough to notice unless you get your nose right close to it.
The colour of the white tack is, well, white as you would more or less expect but I would say it has more of a darker off white tone to it and it is not as pure in colour and tone as white paper for instance as it does take on a greyish tinge.
Because the White tack comes in a flat type clock of the product you need to tear off a small amount at a time. Generally for things such as hanging posters upon the wall with you really need only a pea sized amount, if that for each corner of the poster and this sized amount is easy to remove and give a bit of a massage before using. The more massaging the better the stick I have found.
The White tack seems to stick up things just as well as the Blue tack would do and really all it does being white is open up a few more possibilities and allow it not to be seen so much as the blue colour of the original tacky product. It does however have a good reason for buying it because the blue marks that were once left on the walls after the poster had been taken down is no longer there! There is though still a greasy patch like there always is but this seems less noticeable and of course without the blue mark is a lot less messy as well.
All in all there is really nothing negative to say about this White Tack. It is a good sticker and holds posters and rugs on laminate flooring in place well and doesn't seem to be a messy as its blue counterpart! I think nothing but a top score of 5 out of 5 stars will do and a very high recommendation!
I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you
Many thanks for taking the time to read.
Summary: a great tack
