Retape is a patent pending sticky roll tape that can be removed and reused even after it's been stuck to an item.
This product looks like traditional clear tape, can be written on like traditional tape, and holds items together or closed like traditional tape. Unlike traditional tape, however, Retape has non-sticky blue tabs about an inch apart which allows the tape to be easily removed from where it has been stuck. Once removed, the tape stays sticky allowing it be reused.
The tape also comes with a dispenser that has suction cups on the bottom holding it securely in place. This allows the tape to be easily removed from the roll.
The cost of Retape is $10.00 plus $6.95 shipping. The special TV offer allows you to receive a second Retape by paying the extra shipping fee of $6.95 for a total price of $23.9. This price was obtained from the As Seen on TV commercial page which was taken offline due to Retape being discontinued. Retape may still be found for sale on Amazon or Ebay.
This tape can be removed and reused without loosing it's stickiness, making it ideal for sealing bags that get opened a closed frequently.
This product can be used like traditional tape - sealing, binding and holding things together - in addition to other nontraditional way. For example, Retape can be used to reseal bags of pet food or chips; it can hold lids on containers; and it can seal a confidential file folder shut without doing any damage.
One roll of Retape comes with 500 inches of tape. Since the tape is designed to be reused, a purchaser will be getting enough to last the average user a very long time!
First decide how much tape you will need. To seal a bag of chips, one or two inches of tape should suffice. Holding together plastic containers may require several inches.
Once you decide how much tape you need, cut the tape at or as close to the red line on the tape as possible. You can cut the tape using the provided dispenser - there is no need for scissors or a knife.
( The red line on the tape is located on the non-sticky blue tab portion of the tape. When cutting at the red line, the user is creating a non-sticky tab at both ends of the tape, which is what makes the tape easy to remove from wherever it has been stuck. It also allows the tape to be reusable. )
Stick the tape on a item or items, making sure the sticky part of the tape is what is covering the parts that will be held together.
For example, if you are using Retape to seal a bag of coffee, make sure the sticky part of the tape is placed over the parts of the bag that need to be held together.
When you want to remove Retape, simply lift the blue tabs and pull.
Reuse the tape! If, for example, the tape sealed together a bag of chips, after removing the tape to open the bag you can use the same piece of tape to reseal the bag.
By using Retape instead of regular roll tape, a person will save money because they will be able to reuse the Retape. This means there will be far less tape to buy in the long run.
This product can also save money if used to reseal bags of food. Resealing bags of food keeps the food fresher longer by keeping the air out.
Yes, Retape really does work. The product sticks to items just like regular roll tape, but as demonstrated in the manufacturer's video, the tape can be easily removed and reused.
The tape needs to be cut each time at or as close to the red line as possible in order to work correctly.
It is likely the tape will not be reusable if the tape gets wet.
If you are using the Retape to seal frozen or refrigerated foods, write on the tape the food's expiration date. This will save you time when determining if the food is safe to eat.

Chip clips are too bulky for a kitchen drawer or the freezer, so I purchased Retape to reseal chip or pretzel bags, frozen veggies and more. I even use it when I travel to keep my moisturizer closed and prevent spills in my bag. It's available at www.Retape.com.
