Let’s face it, there’s always one desk drawer in the house filled with rubber bands. You’ll need them eventually for something, so why get rid of them? There are pencils you can group together or snack bags missing a chip clip, but who knew they could be used for household hacks?
From stopping the typical paint can mess to quietly shutting the door during nap time, these Rubber Band Hacks will definitely make your life much easier!
Stripped Screw Hack
Stripped screws are so frustrating. How will you ever get it out? Just place a rubber band over the opening and then use the screwdriver as usual. The rubber band creates a grip for the screwdriver that has been stripped away.
Paint Can Hack
Avoid the extra mess of household projects and crafts by keeping paint inside the can. Stretch a rubber band around the paint can and use it as a wipe, to get rid of excess paint on the brush. This hack minimizes unnecessary drips.
Everyone looks forward to nap time — baby and mom. So when you startle your sleeping baby by closing the door, no one is happy. Avoid the commotion by wrapping a rubber band around the knobs. After wrapping it on one side, twist the band to create an overlap and wrap it around the other knob. This will create a buffer and won’t ruin nap time.
