ConTact… that sticky book covering material…. the bane of every mother’s life from the time her kids turn four until the time they turn 10 and can’t be bothered covering their books any more. It will ensure the books last not only the whole year but probably the rest of the millenium as well.
But who knew it had so many other uses? You can decorate your home with ConTact! Well, back in 1959 you could. It was a brand spanking new product back then.
I remember in the early eighties we booted the renters out of our house and returned to find they had indeed decorated with ConTact. Someone had taken painstaking HOURS to cut all the flowers out of a sheet of contact and “beautify” the toilet walls with it. My mother was thrilled I tell you, thrilled *shakes head vigorously*. I am sure she felt it was an appropriate time for a swear word as she sat on the toilet for just as many hours scraping them all off again.
