Using kraft paper as a drop cloth
Using kraft paper as a drop cloth is easy, when you know how. What is kraft paper & why would you want to use it as a drop cloth?....that's one of "joe's" secrets but he wants to share it with you. Kraft paper is sometimes called building paper &/or resin paper. I'd stay away from building paper for a drop cloth (as it has tar inside it....if you tear it). Stay with the pink stuff.....kraft paper or resin paper for your drop cloths. Kraft paper really works great & "joe" really doesn't like anything else, for his drop cloths....especially if he's going to be leaving the kraft paper down for several days. Kraft paper over carpet with pad? That's a different story as the floor is really spongy & the drop cloth has a tendency to rip easier &/or hold. Gluedown carpet, or carpet with a thin pad, is fine for the kraft paper to work as a drop cloth. Try it you'll like it!
