I love the jars but they don't come with gaskets! I'm not so worried about how well sealed they are, but i read reviews that they chip or can shatter and since I'm using them for food I don't really want slivers of glass in my flour. I have not been able to find gaskets that would fit the mouth of the jar, and even if i could, the jar is not even gasket compatible. there is an inch wide rim on the lid that I'm hoping to work with.
So here's the question:
do you know a product (either in a tube, paint on, or comes on a roll) that I could apply to the lid of the jar to create a soft or bouncy surface? Some sort of foam or rubber that I can adhere to the lid that will not stick to the mouth of the jar? extra points if the product has adhesive or adheres when applied but doesn't dry sticky.
Thanks in advance!
