I wanted to share with you a storage idea and uses for rubber bands. A great tip for organizing your rubber bands is to simply use a circle clip or carabiner clip like the one pictured above. You can purchase these at your local office supply store or hardware store. I simply add the rubber bands onto the clip and then attach it to a basket in my kitchen. Now the rubber bands are available and organized when I need them. No more searching through the desk drawer. They are now available whenever I need them!
How to Organize and Uses for Rubber Bands
- A great tip for opening jars is to use a thick rubber band. Simply place it around the jar lid and it provides the grip you need to remove the lid. I keep one in my kitchen just for this use.
- Another great use for rubber bands is when your zipper won't stay up. Shelley actually learned this after many years of waiting tables and not wanting to buy new pants! You get a small rubber band, loop it through the loop of the zipper, and and wrap it around your button. Your zipper will stay up!
- My husband uses rubber bands to seal small leaks in water hoses when they are still good enough to continue using and he doesn't want to replace them.
- My niece uses a rubber band around her paper back books in her back packs to keep the cover from getting bent. That is perfect for poolside summer reading.
- I carry a tape measure with me in my purse so I have it with me while shopping and I use a rubber band to keep it neatly placed in my purse.
- To seal open packages in your pantry.
