Regardless of which brand I buy or where I buy it from, the electrical tapes always get sticky over time. As I use them on USB cables and my earphone cables, it irritates me because it is a "high-touch" point. Is there any alternative that won't get sticky, won't leave residue, and have electrical insulating properties? Please don't suggest Sugru - I used it on my earphones and the seal lasted less than 1 month on my earphones (where the flex is).
OR, is there any out-of-the-box treatment to prevent stickiness on electrical tape?
