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!

Recycle knee high stockings. Cut off the top of knee highs that have runs (top of elastic or even lower if you want), into the width size you want to make your own rubber bands or to keep items together. They are elastic so can stretch.

Free rubber bands. Cut fingers of older rubber gloves. Can make any width. Good place to keep them is on faucet in kitchen sink.

Twist ties work well for wrapping up power tool cords and keeping wires together. Rubber bands also have a variety of uses and are good to keep handy. Take an old bike inner tube and cut it into rings to make some heavy duty rubber bands.
