The absolute worst sticky tape
to remove is Scotch No. 800 and

would work on that stuff was
cigarette-lighter fluid or
acetone, neither of which
is pleasant to work with
and will require a well-
There is a good but even more
primitive solution to holding
a plastic box shut, but one that
is very effective.

and buy a box of 1/4" (wide)
rubber bands of the right
length to be stretched tight
in one or two wraps around
your packaging. No residue
