Paint Lines: Blue Tape vs Frog Tape ...and the winner is???

Picture Source: Home Depot

Frog Tape!!! Without a doubt. I had seen blog posts claiming it's greatness but had never gotten it because it was not available at Home Depot and that is the closest store to our house. However, when in HD the other day I saw that they had started carrying it and they had the "delicate" version (pictured above) which I wanted given the issues we've had with peeling paint. So even though it was a bit more expensive I tried it and am SO glad I did. I unfortunately learned this lesson AFTER going back to the blue tape so I have some paint bleed to fix.

Both were the "delicate" versions of the tape. Wider tape definitely worked better for ease of creating straight tape lines. As for "gentleness," neither peeled off any paint so I was VERY happy about that.

I am honestly amazed at the difference. This post was in no way sponsored by Frog Tape (yeah we're not that cool) - we were just really happy with it so we thought we'd share. Off to buy some more!

Oh yeah :) Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!!!
