Creative Uses for Rubber Gloves
These dish washing staples are also an inexpensive resource for a number of household uses.
If the last time you even thought about rubber gloves was while watching Madmen, then you are in for a surprise.
Pets Best Friend
Use rubber gloves to remove pet hair from furniture. It is one of the cheapest and easiest ways to get the job done. Simply slide them on and run them over the upholstery. The pet hair will stick to the gloves. To clean your gloves, simply rinse them in a bowl of water. The hair will detach and float to the top where it can be easily disposed.
Get Handy with Jars
When a stubborn jar just doesn’t want to open, reach for a rubber glove. Place the glove on your dominant hand and use the extra grip to get that lid off fast.
Whether you store your brooms in the correct bristle up position or with the handle against the wall, chances are those brooms tend to slip. To prevent that startling moment when one topples over and hits the floor, cut a finger off of a rubber glove and slip it over the end of the broom handle. This will help it grip the wall or the floor and stay in place. This is a great trick to keep those mops from slipping, too.
Replace a Bottle Cap
If you can’t find the cap to cover your favorite bottled beverage, try this emergency trick. Snip off the finger of a rubber glove and use it to seal the top.
DIY Ice Pack
For those little bumps and bruises craft this frugal DIY ice pack. Just fill a rubber glove with one part of rubbing alcohol and three parts water. Tie of the glove securely and freeze. Kids will enjoy the fun shape.
