Other than holding together bundles of pens or creating a miniature catapult for a science project, rubber bands have many other surprisingly practical uses in the kitchen, office, for DIY home projects and more.
Want to give your cutting board more traction? Place rubber bands on both ends so you don't risk slipping the cutting board off the kitchen counter. Tie rubber bands around paint cans and other opaque liquid containers so you can keep track of how much liquid is left. And don't forget that if you ever want to add a groovy tie-dye design to your T-shirt, you can't go wrong with rubber bands when you dip your plain white T-shirt into the dye.
