Rated 5 out of 5 by The best for multi surface adhesion We recently did a residential repaint.The homeowner had all the woo floors refinished so we applied Rosin paper and used 2" 3m tape to hold the paper to the foors with great results and no damage to the floors. I will only use 3M products for my business ! October 29, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Scotch Blue, a quilter friend. Use your tape for painting projects BUT I am a quilter and we quilters love your tape for marking our quilts. Use the tape to mark where we want to quilt, therefore we don't have to mark the quilt with marking pens. Tape leaves no residue and can be used more than once. My commercial would be, " I'm a quilter and I use Scotch Blue." Recently recommended this method to a lady heading home to the Phillipines. Said she would buy some before leaving. May 28, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for more than just painting! We originally bought this tape for use on the outside of our car as we trust it to peel off cleanly without taking any paint with it. It never made to our car as there are just so many uses! One of the main uses is to mark food containers with the contents and date for in the fridge. That way we always know how long something has been in there. This wonderful blue tape ALWAYS peels off cleanly and without leaving any residue. November 8, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by True to its name, not just a painters tape, has multi-purposes! I am not a painter by any means, but I have used the multi-purpose blue painters tape for a variety of tasks, including - sticking it on a painted wall/to cover an area to prevent splash [its primary, intended purpose].For places that need touch-ups for whatever reason: be it, due to too many nail holes made by picture frames over the years, and you decide to patch them up and do some touch up paint. Or you are installing new light switches and you need to tape around that area, or even to prevent accidental punctures when working with tools. It seems to do the job as intended.But the great thing is that this, really is a multi-purpose tape, and I feel it can take the role of masking tape as well for better or worse. What I mean is, when you are using this tape outside of the painting realm [such as uses intended for vanilla colored masking tape], it does not leave a sticky residue over time, or if it gets heated [a hot day, left on a hot surface/on a hot day, or just over time]. Which saves a lot of trouble. The "worse", although its not really that bad [I know wrong word choice], is that sometimes it may not stick as strongly as you would like compared to masking tape. For example, folded heavy duty plastic baggies [like those thick, I believe 4mil? 6mil?] plastic bags at around 3-6 inch tall to 2 inch wide. An easier example might be, the freezer bag style zip-lock bags, and sometimes even slightly thicker. This tape may curl up on the corners depending on how its used, if the inside of the bag is "pumped" etc.Overall a great tape for its intent, and other multi-purposes. May 27, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best for Kids stuff I have 3 young children who I have to label every toy, shirt,book,cup, blanket, coat, hat, etc they wear or bring to school and daycare. I use the blue 1/2 to label everything. I also hand every kids art project in my house with it. IT is the BEST!!! It even stays on in the wash for about 5 washes! March 21, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Pulled paint off of walls This product pulled the paint off the walls and allowed paint to seep through. With all the touching up I had to do afterwards, I would have been better off not using it all. I have had much more success with other painters tape. I would not recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product experience This product was easy to work with. The tape kept the paint from getting through and worked well with different types of paint. I would recommend this product for a variety of surfaces and paints. September 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product works great. I love Scotch Blue painters tape! I have used it for painting my bathroom and had nice clean paint lines when i peeled the tape away from the wall and it left the paint on the wall verses tearing the paint away with the tape. Scotch Blue also kept my base boards free of paint for my project. I highly recommend Scotch Blue Tapes. September 17, 2013
