Do you have a painting project in your future? If so, try Vaseline as a substitute for painter’s tape. Apply a thin layer to mask surfaces where you don’t want the paint to adhere, such as window glass, door hinges or knobs, and the edges of linoleum, tile, or wood floors. When you’ve finished painting, wipe away the gel with a wet rag. No scraping required!
