With many basic items in short supply in Cuba, frugal Cubans, who have an average income of about $25 per month, have gained a reputation as being amazingly resourceful with whatever they DO have. The repurposing of unlikely materials reaches new heights with the use of condoms, in abundance due to public health policies.

In effectpillow cases vintage, condoms are used a release gauges for?wine jugs. As the fruit ferments, it releases gas, which inflates the condoms making them stand erect. Once they deflate and become flaccid, the winemaker knows that the fermentation is complete. ?The condoms are pricked with a pin once or twice to allow the slow release of gas, mimicking sophisticated valves used in more technologically advanced winemaking countries,

Home winemaker Orestes Estevez told the AP: ?“Putting a condom on a?bottle is just like with a man.”

The clever uses of condoms by Cubans got us thinking about other ways to use the thin, highly expandable, inexpensive material (non-lubricated, that is.)

Elastic Bands:?Unroll a condom completely, then carefully cut it across its width to create rings…;

Water balloon:?Fill with water, tie the end to seal…;then throw.

Cold Pack: ?Fill with water and freeze.

Balloon Animals: ?Blow a condom or two up like a balloon, tie the end and twist into shapes; use a marker to draw faces, fins, paws, ears etc

Jar Opener. Stretch a condom over the stubborn jar lid and twist. The condom acts as a rubber gripper.

Medical supply and small electronic protector. To protect bandages, medicines or small electronic devices from moisture, place one in a condom and tie the end.

And then, there is condom couture...

As 2 Chainz eloquently put it, “it’s a vibe” — and specifically a vibe that might be described as a dreamy California desert fantasy: warm toned images of Palo Santo beside a chunk of quartz, a bathtub full of flower petals and sliced citrus, a perfectly sun-lit breakfast setting, or a portrait of herself among a landscape of cacti, the breeze blowing her hair across her face.
