Some jars just refuse to open. If you're in a pinch, a non-lubricated condom can give you the grip you need to remove the lid. You can even make multiple elastic bands out of one so it doesn't go to waste.
In honour of US Condom Awareness Month, Instructables user mikeasaurus looked for the best unusual uses of this important form of protection. Just like a rubber band can help give you the grip you need, a condom will do the trick nicely as well.
You don't have to use an entire condom just for one lid, though. Cut off the tip of the condom and proceed to cut the whole thing into mini latex bands. Now you can get a grip whenever you need or use the bands for anything a rubber band can do. Check out the link below for more unusual condom uses.
