Duct Tape Contest

TerpCreek is having a contest. 

Two easy steps to enter the contest:
1. Become a follower of this blog
2. Click comments and answer this question. What do you use duct tape for?

This will be a lot of fun because there are so many uses for duct tape!

To get the ball rolling here is 1 way I use duct tape. I use it to remove lint or pet hair. Just rip it off 8 to 10 inches and roll it inside out and press on your sweater to remove link or pet hair. Works great!

Once you are a follower you can enter as may times as you want but each time has to be a new idea or use of duct tape.

Each entry will be numbered then a number will be picked randomly. There will be 1 winner for every 100 ideas in the comments. Remember only one idea per comment.

The prize will be one free 5" x 7" pencil sketched portrait of one pet or one child. This may turn into a surprise box as I am going to try to get other sponsors to also contribute a prize. If you would like to contribute a prize just email me for details at

Good Luck


  1. Personally, I don't really use Duct Tape, however, at work (where I volunteer)we use it everyday to keep the tougue of the door knob pushed in so that the door won't lock us out. Now when the head preacher arrives on the scene, he automatically takes it off and places it on the thermostat that is just inside the door. I guess we are a needy organization and have to save that Duct tape and use it over and over.

  2. I have 2 ideas for duct tape #1 my husbands mouth but he won't agree to that, #2 his nose when he snores but alas he won't agree to that either LOL - so now we just use it when we box up holiday decorations! :)
