    • TAPE APPLICATION TIPS: For great paint results make sure the surface is clean, dry and dust-free so that the tape sticks properly. Next, apply the tape onto the surface while pressing down firmly as you go. And lastly, let the tape set for about 30 to 60 minutes before painting.
    • TAPE REMOVAL TIPS: Wait until the paint is dry to the touch before removing the tape. Lift it up by slowly pulling it back on itself, then removing at a 45-degree angle.

    ScotchBlue™ Original Painter’s Tape is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 353.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not solvent freindly I bought the for a boat project using epoxy. I taped out one color removed the tape. Let the color dry, taped out the dried color used acetone to clean the surface before starting the next color. Starting the next coat, got down to edge of the other color taped out. for some reason the coating started rolling up. i guess the acetone moved a coating from the tape to the areas next to the tape. So i guess this was not the right choice for tape.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible tape! Hello, I never ever leave revues or comments about products but what I just went through I wouldn’t put anyone else through. I just spent all day taping the ceiling of two rooms. When I removed your Scotch Blue Original Multi-Surface painters tape from the ceiling that was painted 48 hours ago, it pulled almost all of the paint off with it. I can’t believe I actually gave the blue tape a try. This project is pretty much a do over and a waste of a vacation. This product is garbage and I will never use any of your products again. This will also be copied and pasted on every site/comment/revue page I can find so other people do not purchase this horrible product and go through this. I have painted many rooms in my homes and of course tried this tape because it was on sale. Thanks for a loss of 3 day. Your product is horrible!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Masking Tape for Painting I’ve always used frog tape and have had great success using this product. Recently I was at Lowe’s and they were out so I purchased 3M 2090 masking tape, what a big mistake!!!! I applied the 3M tape and proceeded painting the ceiling on our patio enclosure, when finished I pulled the tape and was horrified with how this product performed. It not only let paint through but also pulled paint off the trim work. This paint on the trim was about 5 yrs old so it wasn’t freshly painted. Very disappointed with the results, now I have even more work to do. Should of stuck with Frog Tape and went to another store.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Peeled off the paint I painted the walls 2 weeks ago. Today I decided to calk a little, so I used the tapes the calking wouldn't get on the wall. It pulled about an inch of the paint off the wall.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Took the trim paint off I used this tape on trim for a weekend paint project (stairway). It is taking the trim paint off as I remove it. This is a new house (1 year) so the paint is in good intact form. I'm not happy!!!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing In the past, I used the tape to great effect. But the roll I bought recently is terrible. Once the paint hits it the edges curl up, even though they were firmly pressed down. And when I peeled it up the edges we're very sloppy. It even took some of the paint with it! Very disappy.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from blue painters taape. what junk it is. put it on the wall, pressed to be sure it sealed, bled through all the way down both walls. when i went to take it off it peeled off the older paint so now i have to paint more walls to fix the damage. would never buy this junk again. what should have been a quick project has now turned into a two day job... what a waste of money.
