I never fails to happen. You need to use a roll of masking tape for something, and when you find the roll, you spend the next five minutes trying to find the end of the tape and peel the end up so you can actually use it. An easy way to avoid this and always have the tape ready to use us to use a bread clip. When you’re finished using the masking tape (or really any type of tape). use the bread clip to mark the end . It will prevent it from sticking back to the roll, but also keep the end nice and neat so it’s ready to use the next time you need it.
