One Trusty Tip for Loosening and Removing Old Masking Tape

Did you ever start a painting job and then have to set it aside only to find that when you came back, the masking tape would not come off without doing damage to the surface it was stuck to?

This technique will work on almost any kind of tape or label and remove it from wallpaper, paint, wood finishes or even furniture.
