Tuesday Life Hacks: 6 things dad can do with duct tape

Duct tape was originally invented by Johnson & Johnson’s Permacel division during WWII for the military. Although it was very useful as a waterproof tape that could be used to keep moisture out of ammunition cases, these days it’s used for so much more.

Since this week we celebrate Fathers, here are some helpful duct tape life hacks.
