Short List of How Not to Store Rubber Bands

I thought I was on some Marie Kondo meets Martha Stewart stuff with this one, but nope. Massacre.
  1. I put all my rubber bands in a Ball jar and screwed it shut. This seemed like an attractive and practical move. The jar sat on my desk, where it was in direct sunlight much of the time.
  2. Rubber bands are not peaches. I desiccated the batch, all of them, full stop. They need air or water or something. Every band just snaps now if pulled even lightly.
  3. It was pretty, though.
