Hi Jan. Where do you buy your rubber band straps that hold the guides in place?

...that are parts of a cotton bud tubing heated up with a lighter or candle.

Hi Jan, could you please tell me what the bands are made with? It looks like some kind of flexible tubing that you can role up the rubber band but I can't figure out what it might be. Thanks

Sonny
