MAKE DRINKING GLASSES NON-SLIP — A TIP FROM ACTIVE DAILY LIVING

To create a non-slip grip, wrap rubber bands around a glass. Spread the bands out. When you hold the glass, the entire palm side of your hand and fingers should be in contact with the rubber bands. You will be able to hold the glass using less grip force.
