8 useful alternative methods of using the cling film
Scotch decided to use mainly in order to glue together a few items, but for nearly a century of its existence, there were other ways to use a transparent adhesive tape, some of them quite unexpected. We offer you a selection of nine unusual ways useful tape. For example, you can:
1. Get rid of pet hair on your clothes
If you have pets, you probably know this problem - to clean clothes from the wool. Usually, for this purpose, buy a special sticky roller, or simply spend on clothes a wet hand, the second method is not very efficient, and the roller can not be close. In this case, you can use the tape: rewind a bit of a roll of adhesive tape, attach the adhesive side to the clothing and sharply Pull - all stuck to the hairs clothing will be on the tape. By the way, the same way you can rid your favorite sweater from the pellets without damaging the fabric.
2. Get splinter
If a splinter sits not too deep, you can use tape to extract it. You need to stick tape to the affected area of the skin and dramatically pull in the same direction, in what became a thorn. Just note that you need to do everything quickly, without making an attempt to pull the splinter out slowly, otherwise there is a risk that it will break, and part of it will remain in the skin. If you do everything correctly, the thorn will come quite easily. Definite advantage of this method over the traditional vykovyrivaniem using needles that you will not leave the skin more damage and do not make the wound deeper.
3. Stop the bleeding
If you receive a shallow but painful wound, and the blood does not want to stop, then carefully wash the damaged place, pinch the edge of the wound together and stick to this place tape - quickly stop the blood. However, when you still reach the first aid kit, then treat the wound with iodine or brilliant green.
Similarly, one can use tape to prevent blisters. If you feel that shoes unbearably rubbed his leg, and the plaster is there again, stick to this place adhesive tape: the skin will not be in direct contact with the shoe, and therefore immediately becomes easier.
4. Fix the ends of shoelaces
C are deteriorating and vdet their shoes in holes becomes very problematic over time even the tips of the highest quality laces. If the wind frayed ends of stationery tape, then they would look almost like new, and vdet their holes will be easy.
5. Make a custom sculpture of scotch
These days, artists often use tape for this purpose. Some, like the famous Marc Janice, made from scotch human figures in natural size. To do this, a man wearing tight-fitting clothes that do not mind mess, and then wrapped with a thin cling film to tape will not stick directly to clothing and glued on top of tape. Artists recommend pre-cut tape small strips of 15-20 cm in length and gradually stick them on the body of a "model" in several layers. When the sculpture is ready, the dense layers of Scotch neatly cut off from the body of a "model", and then re-connected to the ground section by means of the same adhesive tape or glue resistant. Of course, the same way you can wrap any piece of adhesive tape.
6. Make manicure
To do this, take a tape medium tack and nail polish. First, check how well the tape rests on the nail - it is important that it is easy to peel off. If everything is in order, you can proceed directly to the manufacture of nails. First color nails with varnish in a single layer and wait until it is completely dry. Then cut tape in different shapes - squares, triangles, abstractions. It is desirable that the figures were more acute angles. Then stick tape on the nails, cover it with a different color paint and gently remove the excess tape with tweezers. The result will be abstract patterns on your nails - in those places where you are stuck on the nails tape and then removed it will be seen lacquer, which you originally covered nails.
7. Make frosted glass transparent
If you stick tape to frosted glass, that through it you can see almost as well as through the transparent. The fact that the light falling on the surface of the matte is dispersed, and the adhesive layer on an adhesive tape fills irregularities in matte, resulting in light rays is much easier to pass therethrough.
8. Invent count
Graphene - an ultra-thin layer of carbon one atom thick, and currently is the strongest of all known materials mankind. Due to its thickness it is completely transparent. But not even the most interesting of its amazing properties, and the way the material was first obtained. To create his discoverers of graphene Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov took tape. Researchers have a simple pencil glued to graphite tape, and then unstick it - on adhesive layer side was graphite one atom thick. Next Scotch dissolved using chemicals, and as a result we obtain the graph - this experience can easily replicate at home.
