Rubber bands are great for closing things and keeping things together. I have a few other useful ideas on how to use rubber bands in your home.
For these ideas you’ll need rubber bands in a variety of sizes and widths. I found mine at Dollar Tree.

Put a wider elastic band around the lid of a jar, and it will help you open those tough jars.

Hook a wide rubber band around one handle, crisscross the rubber band and hook the other onto the other handle. This will slow down the door when it gets closed so it doesn’t slam.

Use big rubber bands: Roll up t-shirts, pants, etc and hold them into place with a rubber band. It’ll help you be organized and get more into your suitcases.

Use long large rubber bands by looping it through on one side of your dishwasher, pulling it across the stemware, and hooking it on to the dishwasher via edge or prong.
Other things you can do with this handy tool:

- keep large pieces of rolled-up poster paper together
- Use instead of paper clips
- Keep stacks of items together like playing cards
- Use durable rubber construction bands handy for preserving paint. Place plastic wrap over the top and secure it with a large size rubber band about one inch wide.
