We wanted to try this tape because I have terrible luck painting and using the blue painters tape. I recently just learned about frog tape, so we decided to pick up a roll of frog tape and a roll of the 'snot tape. We did half the bathroom with the frog tape and the other half with the 'snot tape. While the frog tape definitely had better lines and less seeping of the paint than the blue painters tape, the 'snot tape had a noticeably straighter edge and NO seeping at all. It comes on a sturdy, cardboard roll that holds the tape in place and also doesn't pick up any dirt on the sides of the tape because it is protected. It's got this pretty cool gel that is very, very sticky. I am 100% sure that this gel is why I don't have paint on my wood floors, which are very bumpy (they have a natural wood surface). In all honesty, I was too nervous to even try the frog tape on the floor because I could tell just by looking at the snot tape that it would do a much better job because the gel would...
I purchased SnotTape to paint my basement rec room when I ran out of painters tape. It worked great and the line along the trim was noticeably sharper than the walls where I used painters tape. It was easy to put down and take back up as well.
The paint side of this tape worked as a decent stop gap; however, the opposite "across" side left a faint residue one inch from the intended paint line. This line is absolutely noticeable enough and was painted about one year ago with quality Ben Moore product (enough time to cure). I wouldn't use this tape again on a painted surface. I might attempt using it on wooden or metal non painted surfaces.
