How Do I Make Rubber Shrink?

Answer

In most instances, you can shrink rubber, but only for a short period of time. By heating rubber, it gets shorter. However, once the rubber cools down, it becomes just the same size as it was before. Heating rubber is only a temporary solution, and your best bet is to just get rubber in a smaller size, rather than trying to shrink down a larger size.
