The rubber of my table tennis bat is starting to peel off one "corner".
Are there any household products I can use to stick it back that will not damage the rubber too much?

Many players I know, including myself, use Rubber Cement. It's cheaper than the "Chack" you get from Stiga, Butterfly, etc, and in my experience, seems to work just as well. It also doesn't leave any bits of the rubber on the blade when you need to remove it.
Just spread a thin layer on the blade and rubber surface, let it dry, then attach them. These are the 2 that I've been using for many years.
This banned glue (voc) is suitable for invertible rubbers eg Tackiness chop and last playing up to 5 years duration and since it is banned and use water based which suit all kind of attackers and useless for defenders who wanted to chop and spin variation. Myself, I was playing great with banned glue from 1972 to 1997 and after that get new rubber to replace worn rubber (used for 3years) since then my performance is in decline of choppings defense although new 40mm ball enforced later makes little difference, thus having in search with solvent glues (outside tt circuit) made little impact and very short life and had to re-glue time too many over which caused damaged rubbers and spent fortune buying new rubbers. I just wish to have the banned glue back from tt circuit because once it is glued and stayed for 3 to 5 years and more but because of speed gluing harmful led to banned and led include this normal glue banned too is unfair when it is applied once unlike others who used speed glueings on every games/ matches. I have to say this water based glue (ittf approved) of any kinds is so useless for inverted rubbers playing choppings and defenders around the world is declining because of water based normal glues not getting top defenders to highest levels and that showed a fact!
