The refrigerator seems to be the hub of the home’s information center. At leas ours is. You can walk into our kitchen on any given day and see where we’ve been, who we went there with, and what we want to do in the future, all in the bits and pieces stuck to the refrigerator. As the years have gone by the items have changed. The kids’ artwork from preschool was replaced with report cards and birthday invitations. Those were replaced by sports schedules and class lists. Still those gave way to tux rental receipts and college applications. And in the last few years most signs of children living in the house are gone, save for some old photos we keep there.
I miss the days of the crazy glued macaroni artwork and even the struggles with report cards and promises printed in barely legible writing to do better next term. Now our fridge is covered in coupons, gift cards we’re afraid to forget to use, and bills. Hardly glamorous. And over the years we’ve used lots of different ways to keep things secure to our “communication center”. Everything from tape to magnets and a few things in between. Now there are restickable products that promise to come off cleanly, restick when you need it, and not do any damage. And they come in fun shapes and colors. Love it!
I got the chance to try out the Scotch Restickables and found they work great, even on my heavily textured 1988 refrigerator (jealous? giggle). I did find that on most items they became unstuck when placed on the top of the item, but when I peeled the second side and placed the Scotch Restickables firmly between the item and the refrigerator they worked great. It’s likely the heavy texture on appliance is what caused the issue but I didn’t mind, the shapes are cute but feel out of place in my kid-less kitchen.

I do think these Scotch Restickables will come in handy all over the house. I”ll be using them to help me hang photos in my hallway – I’ll use them to hang pieces of paper the same size and shape as the frame to see how I like them laid out on the wall before I start hammering nails into it. I’ve stuck several to the bathroom mirror so I can tack up notes to the hubby there, and I’ll use them anywhere I need a temporary bond between two items.
Please Note: I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Scotch and received Scotch Restickable products to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.
