I've been doing this for several years now and thought I'd share with those who haven't hit on this idea.
You know how your bucket handles wear out or are just plain uncomfortable.
I take a piece of old garden hose and cut off an appropriate size piece. Then I split it down the middle with a pair of tin snips. Slip it over the handle and wrap it with duck or gorilla tape. Voila! More comfortable than the original handle. You might need to rewrap with tape after a while. YMMV.
