|Yeah, I like to EAT that double sided tape (and so does my "brother", Eko.)
Aluminum foil worked for a while here, but we got used to it.....but it did discourage us. Saying NO and removing us has had an effect after months and months. Mom still doesn't get 100% compliance but we are doing pretty good and she wipes down the counters well when food will be touching them.
Ssscat (the can) worked wonders for us with the Christmas tree. It has the advantage of correcting the cat even when you aren't aronund...pretty important.
Having somewhere in the kitchen where they can perch and watch you legally sometimes helps too. I trained mine that it's okay to hop up on the counter ONLY to immediately get on the kitchen window sill. (It was too great of a cat perch to deny them access.) That has actually been a good compromise for us. I thought it would be confusing for them, but they learned that the window sill was the "legal" spot pretty quickly.
