Ten Ways a Simple Rubber Band Can be of BIG Help


Hot Springs, AR (PRWEB) July 09, 2013 – Spring cleaning has passed, and for many the time has come for summer organizing. Arkansas-based Alliance Rubber has created a list of useful household tips using the simple and inexpensive rubber band. Organizing can be made simple and cost effective.

The following is a top 10 list of ways you can organize your life with the use of rubber bands:

1. Stretch around a box to prevent loose flaps. Taping down a flap can be a quick fix, but a pain to remove. Stretch a rubber band around the box and store it anywhere.

2. Bundle loose pens, crayons and other utensils. Loose writing instruments can occupy unnecessary space in your desk. Bundling these with a rubber band can create more room for other items.

3. Keep a tablecloth in place. Do you need a table for a messy chore, but want to keep it clean? Stretch a rubber band across the tablecloth at each end of the tabletop.

4. Prevent kinks in your water hose. Stretching out a tangled water hose can be a pain. Gear Wrapz is a new rubber band product used to easily bind lengthy objects together.

5. Secure a trash bag in a garbage can. Keep trash bags in place with a rubber band. Now that dirty garbage bag won’t cave into the trash can as you fill it.

6. Strap onto your car visor to read directions, store loose paper, etc. during your summer road trip. No need to stack papers on the seat of your car when you can store them on your visors. Your passengers will thank you for sparing them the mess.

7. Enclose an overstuffed box. Do you have a box filled to the brim, but have to place just a few more items inside because you don’t have the space for a second one? Stretch a rubber band across to contain the overload.

8. Contain a notebook full of notes, tests, etc. (perfect for the college student). College classes require a lot of note taking, but no student wants to bring more than one notebook. The new Corner to Corner rubber bands offer the perfect solution to store all of your materials in one binder.

9. Take the tangle out of your power cords. Just as Gear Wrapz provide a great way to gather a water hose, they offer the same benefit for power cords. Eliminate the time wasted attempting to untangle entwined cords.

10. Straighten the bristles of an old, raggedy broom. Are you about to dispose of a timeworn, shabby broom? Wrap a rubber band around the bristles, leave it overnight, then remove the next morning. Your broom will look like it turned back the hands of time.

Whatever your need, the right rubber band can be ordered online at Alliance Rubber’s website http://www.rubberband.com or found at your nearest supply store.
