Duct Tape

It is not widely known that Duct tape was first developed for use as medical bandaging material during World War II. It did keep soldiers from bleeding to death, but pulling it off caused more damage and pain than the original bullet wound so it was quickly abandoned for more conventional bandaging. The military started looking for other uses for this amazing product and the rest is history. Duct tape comes in a variety of colors (the newest is clear), but my favorite is the original silver/gray. It is with great pride and honor that we offer this list of "Unconventional Uses for Duct Tape.
