Just when you think you’re done, it’s still not over! The paint cans may all be closed, but there’s still a critical step left in your paint project: removing the painter’s tape.

1. Remove immediately: tape pulls up easily without chipping if you remove it directly after painting. If you’re painting an entire room, for example, remove the tape from the area where you started painting first. 

2. Score the edge: there are some cases when you can’t or don’t want to remove the tape right after you finish painting. In that scenario, scoring is your best bet. Score the edge where the tape meets the freshly painted surface with a putty knife or razor blade then pull up the tape. 

3. Pull angle: remove the tape by pulling back at a 45-degree angle. If the tape is stuck in a trickier area, a 90-degree angle may work better.
