A list of the top 10 uses for a rubber band, apart from flicking paper…
- Wind a thick rubber band around a water leak in a garden hose, or thin pipe, to make a temporary repair. Stretch it as tightly as possible. The rubber will plug the gap and its waterproof.
- Wind around a candle to stop wax dripping down onto a surface, or put it at the top and stop waxing running down the candle. This makes it last longer.
- Fasten pigtails, or pony tails.
- Secure glasses or protective goggles to your face and stop them sliding off while you are working.
- Use to make a book. Fold your paper in half and use the rubber band to make a spine.
- Wind a rubber band around each end of a chopping board to prevent slipping. The rubber grips the surface.
- Wind around the handles of knives to stop them sliding around in your hand as you chop food, especially if they are wet.
- Wind around screw tops on bottles to help you get a better grip when twisting them off.
- Expand the waist band on your pants, or skirt. Loop the rubber band through the button hole and fasten to the button. This can give you an extra inch.
- For kids and the elderly who may find it hard to grip a drinking class, especially when it is cold and slippery, wind rubber bands around to give a grip: Good for anyone with arthritis.
