frequently asked questions

WHAT ARE CALM STRIPS, AND HOW DO THEY WORK?

Calm Strips are similar to stickers, but have a special reusable adhesive and two unique surface textures to choose from. Rubbing, scratching, or picking at your Calm Strips are great ways to help reduce fidgeting, increase focus, and regulate restless energy.

WHO ARE CALM STRIPS FOR?

Calm Strips are for everyone! From age 6 to 80 and beyond, Calm Strips are enjoyed by students, teachers, fidgeters, anxiety warriors, and members of the BFRB, ADD, ADHD, and Autistic communities.

WHERE CAN YOU PUT CALM STRIPS?

Calm Strips use a special reusable adhesive; think of it as a new and improved take on a static cling. They are perfect for the back of your phone, a desk, a bedframe, or even your favorite water jug. While they stick marvelously to smooth, flat surfaces, they will not stick to paper or skin.

HOW DIFFICULT IS IT TO REMOVE CALM STRIPS?

Calm Strips can easily be removed from a surface by simply peeling it up from the corner. Not only are they removable, they are reusable! Calm Strips use a high quality adhesive which was specifically designed for repeated use, and they won't leave a residue behind.

HOW LONG DO CALM STRIPS LAST?

Calm Strips contain a very durable vinyl polymer that is designed to withstand outdoor elements for upwards of four years. While milage may vary depending on the habits of the user, Calm Strips will remain functional for months or even years as long as the adhesive side stays relatively clean.

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN BOTH TEXTURES?

Soft Sand is a subtle, grainy texture. Scratch it like you would an itch or pick at the corners. Our River Rock texture is bumpier and less uniform than Soft Sand, and is ideal for rubbing.

WHAT ARE CALM STRIPS MADE FROM?

Calm Strips are made of Polypropylene. For our friends with Latex allergies, do not worry, our products are Latex-free.

HOW CAN YOU CLEAN THEM?

Calm Strips are water resistant and can be gently cleaned with a damp disinfectant wipe or pretty much any household cleaner.

DO CALM STRIPS STICK TO SKIN?

Calm Strips use a special reusable adhesive that is more akin to a super static cling sticker than to a traditional sticker or tape. While they stick great to smooth, flat surfaces such as a phone or desk, they will not stick to skin. We recommend adding one of our Carry Tags to your order for a great on-the-go solution.

WHAT ARE THE DIMENSIONS OF CALM STRIPS?

Calm Strips measure exactly 0.8" x 3.2"

Calm Strips are manufactured in Sweden.
