I had a small square of surgical tape left from taping up a photo with this tape. I love surgical tape, and use it for many purposes other than bandaging things, which doesn’t come up that often. It is a more delicate duct tape. I absently smoothed this small square over a spot on my desk where the paint had come off. A few days later, I lifted the tape and saw the spot underneath as if I’d never seen it before, and it seemed, for a moment, as if lifting the tape had caused the spot instead of covering it up.
