Quick Answers



Can I use clear adhesive or masking tape to seal freezing paper when wrapping foods?

Do not use clear adhesive or masking tape to seal freezer paper. The adhesive used on those tapes does not adhere well at freezer temperatures. However, freezer tape has a special adhesive that holds at extremely cold temperatures.
