Anne, List,

The absolute worst sticky tape
to remove is Scotch No. 800 and
similarly formulated varieties
of clear packing tapes.

Years ago, when my family ran
a drugstore, we used Scotch No.
800 to wrap the label onto your
pill bottles because you never
want that kind of label to come
off... ever.

The only two solvents that
would work on that stuff was
cigarette-lighter fluid or
acetone, neither of which
is pleasant to work with
and will require a well-
ventilated area.

There is a good but even more
primitive solution to holding
a plastic box shut, but one that
is very effective.

Go to an office supply store
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
at all.
