So, this little tip isn’t exactly repurposing (you’ll need to use brand new tape, but most people keep this on hand, so you probably won’t need to go out and buy it), but it’s an excellent alternative use for clear packing tape.
Do your children play with toys that are entirely too loud? Or, perhaps if you are a grandparent/aunt/babysitter, maybe kids bring over toys that make you ears bleed. Either way, clear packing tape provides a perfect solution. Cut a piece of clear packing tape and apply it to the speaker portion of any toy. Voilà! Instant peace.
Here’s to having a nice and quiet weekend with the kids!
