Unusual Rubber Band Uses: Helpful Household Tips

Rubber bands are great.  They can stretch, hold items in place and act as a stylish wrist band.  What else can they be used for?  What are some great, but unusual uses?  Try these on for size:

  • Spoon Slide Reducer- Sick of having your spoon slide into your bowl?  Put a rubber band about half way up the handle and it will never be covered in food again!
  • Stick Your Cutting Board- Make sure your cutting board stays in place by adding a rubber band to each side.
  • Reshape a Broom- Extend the life of your broom by wrapping a few rubber bands around the bristles. 
  • Measure Liquids- Place a rubber band around jars and cans to show how much liquid is left.  This should come in handy when it is time to go to the grocery store.
  • Paint Saver- If you like to paint then this is great for you!  Instead of wiping your brush on the side of the can, and eventually making a mess, put a rubber band across the middle of the can.  Wipe the brush on the rubber band to keep the paint in the can!
