Removing Packing Tape from Game Boxes

Got a big box pc game with packing tape all over it? Fear not! Removing packing tape from game boxes is easier than one would expect with this tutorial!

Goodwill is really bad about wrapping PC game boxes with packing tape, and packing tape is the worst when it comes to wrecking the print underneath. In this quick tip video, we demonstrate the technique of using a hair dryer for removing packing tape.

The basic jest of the procedure is to heat the sticky stuff so that it releases from the box. As you heat, apply pressure to the tape BUT DON’T PULL ON IT. You just want the tape to be taut. As the sticky stuff becomes warm, it will release and the tape will come off cleanly.

Note this procedure takes a lot of time, so patience is necessary.
