How Do You Fix White Out Correction Tape?

If you get stuck then you will need to run the whole thing across a bit of paper back and forth until it unravels back to the correct position.

Correction tape gives people the opportunity to correct their mistakes instead of using tippex or what is known as correction fluid which was in previous years the only solution to correct mistakes during handwriting, or, in some forms, typing.

One side of the tape, which is placed against the error, is specially coated in a white, opaque masking material that acts as a cover to hide your errors whether they are long or short ones.  You need to apply firm pressure to the other side of the tape transfers in order for this material to stick to the paper to eradicate your errors.

It is sold as a one off item as short pieces of tape, and is enclosed in a plastic case in a long roll to be used in typewriters, which apply sudden pressure when a key is struck. There are some versions of correction tape which are sold in separate dispensers that are used to roll the tape onto paper directly.

One of these so called products was named The IBM Selectric typewriter which also provided people with the chance to actually ensure a lift-off tape for use thanks all to its carbon film typewriter ribbons. As it is solid, correction tape cannot be sniffed or used in the same way a solvent can be used such as glue or the majority of correction fluids.

If there is excess tape out of the reel, keep on running it across paper like you would normally use it. After about a foot, it should be back to normal.

Yeh, running it across paper worked for me :) sometimes you have to unroll the whole thing then roll it back again, if you know what I mean... :) but usually running it across paper should work :)
