Use Rubber Gloves for Rubber Bands

What do you do when your rubber cleaning gloves get a hole or one of the pair is lost? Don't throw them away. Cut them into strips. They make great heavy duty rubber bands.


Put them around hardcover books; they will stay together. Newspapers won't get loose even in a bad wind! They work great in attaching bean poles together. But they will crush tender vines, be careful!

Old bicycle inner tubes also make great large, strong rubber bands.
