Tape Does Not Stick To Wall
09/30/2019 by Theresa
I was very excited about using this tape to create a perfect line on the corner of a wall with a transition color to the next room. The surface has the light drywall texture common to most new construction within the last 20 years. The paint used is a Sherwin Williams eggshell. After pressing the tape to the wall, I climbed off the ladder and watched it fall off. Then I used a seam roller to reapply the tape, only to watch it fall off the wall again. Very disappointed and I purchased 2 unusable rolls.
Not So Great

We purchased two rolls of Snot Tape for a painting project over the Labor Day Weekend. Unfortunately, the tape kept peeling off of the wall and would not stick. It was a textured wall. We returned the second roll. It might work better in a less hot, humid enviornment.

This product worked great. It’s easy to use, remove and the lines were so straight! The only issue I had was that it says it’s reusable, but when I tried to reuse it (after 1 use) it didn’t stick.

Maybe I used it incorrectly, but It did not work very well. The direction, while good, were horribly organized!! Bits of info were scattered all over the place--some on the box, some on the direction section. I haven't tried it again since having found ALL of the directions. Will give it one last try sometime.

This reusable painters tape is not like the typical (often ineffective) kind. The edges are lined with a gel polyurethane adhesive that gets into the micro-grooves on surfaces, preventing paint from bleeding and seeping. The result is a sharp, smooth paint line. Choose the tape that works best for the job—Specialty Surface for unfinished, primed, or matte surfaces, or Multi-Surface for glossy or eggshell finishes, or anything that’s being re-painted.


Dave Gruenwald created his own reusable painters tape after an epic struggle to paint his den. The dark red paint he used bled and seeped onto the white ceiling, and no matter what type of tape he used—and he tried just about all of them—he couldn’t get a clean line.

Leaning on his engineering background, he came up with ‘SnotTape. What’s special about this Made in the USA tape is the gel polyurethane adhesive that lines both edges. It acts almost like a putty, filling in micro-grooves and gaps (that you probably can’t even see) on surfaces, preventing paint from sneakily seeping in. The result is a clean, crisp line.

The gel also makes the tape flexible, so it’s easy to reposition and reuse. It works on many surfaces, from walls to furniture to bricks, and there are different tapes to best suit your project. Thanks to Dave’s struggle, the rest of us can paint sharp lines with less hassle. more Their Story
