One Very Good Reason NOT to Put Wallpaper on Switch Plates

I don’t like wallpaper on switch plates or outlet covers. I think they look much better nice and crisp and white. I also just hate covering them – it’s tedious and imprecise and leaves lumps at the corners and it eats up my razor blades.

In the few times I have had to cover them, I always give my “lecture” to touch the switch, not the plate. As you can see, someone in this household wasn’t listening, and simply slapped his hand across the whole thing. And, over time, dirt and oil from the skin has stained the wallpaper.
