Masking Tape = FAIL!

masking tapeLabeling your mixer with masking tape is pretty much the same as putting a sign on your back that says “I have no idea what I’m doing“.

You only have to do this important job with masking tape once to understand what I am talking about.

One reason that utility grade masking tape is so inexpensive is that it uses a very low quality adhesive.  This rubber resin based adhesive has good holding power when it is fresh, but dries out very quickly.  When this happens, the adhesive separates (de-laminates) from the paper backing.  The paper can be lifted off, but the dried out adhesive stays behind.
