please tell me who made duct tape?
Duct tape (the WWII military version) was first created and manufactured in 1942 (approximate date) by the Johnson and Johnson Permacel Division of Minnesota Mining and Manufacturing, Co. (3M). Its closest predecessor was medical tape.
The original use was to keep moisture out of the ammunition cases. Because it was waterproof, people referred to the tape as "Duck Tape." Also, the tape was made using cotton duck - similar to what was used in their cloth medical tapes. Military personnel quickly discovered that the tape was very versatile and used it to fix their guns, jeeps, aircraft, etc. After the war, the tape was used in the booming housing industry to connect heating and air conditioning duct work together.
I use it around the Ranch to patch holes in screens until we can actually repair it... I've been patching the seat in my old 1974 Chevy pickup (the Ranch Truck) for the last 7 years, it's more duct tape than fabric these days. I've also used the matte-fabric duct-tape to wrap shovel, hoe, rake, and other tool handles.
warts and duct tape?
Duct tape really isn't the best choice. It'll work, but very slowly (any covering will do the same, such as a band aid). My son had a horrible problem with them for a while and the dr would not freeze them because she said it was viral and they would just come back.
Here is what got rid of my son's for good. Soak a cotton ball in apple cidar vinegar and put it on the wart. Cover the cotton ball with a bandage. Leave it on over night (you can leave it on all day too if you want). The wart will turn black and fall off in about 4 days. It worked wonders for my son.
