Two-way tape for window installation

I've been considering putting plastic over many of our windows for the winter. My only issue is the two-way tape. In years past I've purchased those window insulation kits and used their two way tapes but only once did I find tape that was easy to use (actually stuck to the wood frame well) and came off relatively easily in the spring time. Unfortunately I cannot remember what type or brand that tape was.

Can anyone recommend a type or brand of two-way tape I can use when putting plastic over my windows?

Any other suggestions

I have had good luck with the 3M kits. I bought a "knock-off" brand at a big box and regreted it.

Make sure the wood is very clean. I rubbed it with a sponge in TSP.
