25 Unique Uses For Rubber Bands:
1. A RUBBER BAND BRACELET! http://www.Zibbet.com/BungleBands
2. An eraser. Grab a few rubber bands and create a small rubber band ball. With enough rubber bands, you'll have something sturdy that can erase pencil just as well as your standard eraser.
3. A handle grip. Easy enough. Just wrap several wide rubber bands around the end of a pole to create a comfortable grip. Use this method to make a hiking stick more comfortable.
4. A humble reminder. I do this all the time! Just put a small rubber band over your little finger (remember, not too tight!) to act as a reminder for something important. You just have to remember why the reminder is on your finger, of course!
5. A candle "de-wobbler." Is your lovely candle wobbling in the candle holder? Just put a rubber band around the base and it will fit nice and snug.
6. A glove softener. As a kid, I can remember doing this more than once... A brand new glove is stiff, so after beating it with a mallet and rubbing in shaving cream, wrap a big rubber band around it. Then let it sit.
7. A mail storage system. Hammer two parallel rows of nails in the side of a cabinet or the back of a door, and stretch rubber bands between them to hold mail. You can also stretch bands over a piece of plywood for a cheaper version of the French ribbon board.
8. A remote control saver. Wrap a big rubber band around the top and bottom of a remote. It will protect it from a fall, and it will stop it scratching up the coffee table or your nice wooden floor.
9. An Easter-egg decorator. Just wrap rubber bands in different directions around the eggs before dunking them in egg dye. Cool patterns will appear. I like this better than the magic "white" crayon.
10. A liquid economizer. Wasting precious soap, detergent or lotion? Wrap a rubber band tightly around the neck of the dispensing pump to limit how each “squirt.”
11. A flower arranger. For simple organization of your blooms, use a rubber band to keep flower heads together. Cut the stems to just above the height of the vase for best effect.
12. A sports-glasses holder. If any of you have to wear eyeglasses but play sports, you'll know how annoying it is to have your glasses fall off, especially as the action heats up. Simply cut a rubber band in half and attach each end to each arm. If you have made it tight enough, the glasses will cling nicely to your head without pinching. When the game is over, just cut it off and throw away.
13. A lid gripper. Don’t pay one cent for those expensive lid grips you see advertised on late night TV. Instead, wrap a thick rubber band around the rim of a jar lid and then twist.
14. A wine glass marker. Wrap a different colored rubber band around the stem of each glass the next time you have a dinner party or gathering. No more mixed-up drinks.
15. A "Koosh" ball. Take a whole bunch of rubber bands, and them hold them together with one very strong rubber band. Now cut through the ends of the rubber bands and you have a homemade "Koosh" Ball. Really cheap and fun.
16. A paintbrush scraper. You could wipe the excess from your brush on the inside rim of the can, but this leads to paint leaking into the rim, splattering you with paint when you hammer the lid back on. To avoid this, wrap a rubber band around the can from top to bottom, going across the middle of the can opening. Now you can just tap the brush against the rubber band and the excess paint will fall back into the can. Nice and neat.
17. A sliced apple keeper. This one is pretty cool! If you slice an apple into wedges and then put them all back together, a rubber band wrapped around the apple will hold it all together and help stop the wedges from yellowing or drying out. Much better for the environment than using sandwich bags.
18. A bag sealer. Keep chips, cereal and other bagged produce fresh by folding the top of the bag over and then wrapping a rubber band around the whole thing. Grandma might know this trick.
19. A wire sorter. Especially useful if you have a large collection of wires under your computer, keep them organized by wrapping the excess with rubber bands. Colored rubber bands like these can also help identify the different wires.
20. A broom reviver. If the broom's bristles are looking worn, tighten them up by wrapping thick rubber bands halfway up the bristles.
21. A spoon saver. How often have you seen the spoon fall into the soup or mixing bowl? Just wrap a rubber band around the upper part of the spoon’s handle, right above the point where the spoon touches the rim of the bowl. No more slipping and sliding.
22. A cord shortener. Don't trip over long electrical cords. Simply wrap a rubber band around the excess to shorten them.
23. A wax catcher. Wrap a large rubber band around a candle and it will stop the wax from dripping onto the table.
24. A stress reliever. Make a ball from lots of rubber bands. You can squeeze them when you're feeling stressed, and it's cheaper than an off-the-shelf ball.
25. A tie-dye project. Tightly wrap rubber bands around your clothing item, in several places, and then insert your dyes.
