Keep a Door Unlocked

Never get locked out (or in) again! Place a rubber band on one handle, twist into an X-shape, then loop around the other handle for a door that stays open when needed.

Save a Stripped Screw

Frustrated by a stripped screw? Save your furniture by placing a rubber band between the screw head and screwdriver before resuming.  

Keep a Cutting Board in Place

Prevent slips and spills while slicing and dicing. Wrap two rubber bands around a cutting board, one on each end, for a sturdy prep surface.

Stop Paint Drips

Minimize paint mess by placing a rubber band vertically around the center of a can. Swipe your brush against the band to prevent drips and dribbles.

Prevent a Spoon From Slipping

We've all been there. You step away from your mix for even a minute and your spoon slides into whatever you're prepping. But not anymore! Wrap a rubber band around the end of a spoon or whisk and your utensil will stand upright until you're ready.
