Here’s my shameful confession: Shortly before friends were coming over one evening, the little hose connecting the water to our toilet sprang a minor leak. Yay. We rummaged through our box o’ handy things and pulled out some blessed Gorilla Tape. It totally saved the potty and the party in one go. What makes this confession shameful? The Gorilla Tape is still there. And … it’s been … a while.
So, why Gorilla Tape instead of duct tape? For starters, it’s two to three times tougher and stickier, it’s waterproof and the backing is seriously heavy-duty. It doesn’t rip (so scissors are handy when cutting pieces), wraps around all kinds of non-smooth and smooth surfaces and it performs well in a myriad of temperatures. The Gorilla brand is nothing new to us at HomeFixated – we’ve mentioned Gorilla Glue before and this product, like it’s monkey brother, also gets two big thumbs up.
While the heavy-duty nature of Gorilla Tape may give you the feeling like you’ve fixed it and can now forget it, your sense of dignity will hopefully kick in (still waiting for mine) and you’ll get the job done right when you have a chance.
The 2-Inch by 35-Yard Roll of Black Gorilla Tape runs about $12.
