Tennis is a great game, but after the playing is done, the balls need to be put away. But what if we told you there are other ways you can use the balls beyond just the game of Tennis? Check out these different uses for tennis balls. They might be of help around the house.

DIY Dryer Balls

If you’re out of dryer sheets and don’t want to deal with the static that often comes along with pulling your clothing out of the dryer, this could help. Wrap a couple of tennis balls in foil and throw one or two in with your load of laundry.
They will reduce the amount of static electricity and also help the laundry dry faster and be fluffier when they come out of the machine. This is most effective when drying bulky items like comforters and pillows.

As A Doorstop

Tennis balls can help you stop your door from scuffing the wall or slamming loudly. Rather than buy a doorstop or screw one into the wall behind every door in your home, take a tennis ball and cut it in half. 
You can also use the tennis ball to keep the door open and let in a breeze as well. It is not the prettiest option, but it works.

Erase Scuff Marks

Some have called Tennis balls magic erasers. The soft, fuzzy outer layer is great for rubbing out scuffs and scratches. A great way to do this is to use a broom and tennis ball.
Cut a hole in the tennis ball and place it on the end of a broom or a mop. Flip the broom or mop over and start scrubbing any scuffed floors, walls, or other surfaces with the tennis ball until the marks disappear.

Make A Massager

If you just came in from the tennis courts and have some sore muscles, you can use the green fuzzy balls to give yourself a massage. Massaging the lower back with tennis balls can help loosen soft tissues, release muscle tension, and improve flexibility.
Another option is to put a few tennis balls in a sock and lay it on the ground. Lay on top of the massager and use it like a foam roller.

Soften A Hammer

It may sound weird but a tennis ball can help to soften the blow of a hammer. Use a knife to cut an “X” into the tennis ball.
Stick the hammer inside the cut and hammer away. The tennis ball will absorb some of the impact, so you don’t cause any damage.

Protect Locks From Rust

Rust is the bane of metals, but if you have tennis balls at hand, don’t fret. Cut a hole in the tennis ball big enough to fit the lock inside.
Your lock will be safe and sound from rust! For this to work, your padlock is small enough to fit within a tennis ball.

Jar Opener

The rubber interior of the tennis ball gives it a perfect grip to help open a jar. All you have to do is cut the ball in half with a utility knife, then wrap the tennis ball over the lid of the jar and simply twist it. This will help the lid release and will protect your hands from strain. 

Protect Your Floors

If you always seem to struggle to park in the right spot, tennis balls can help. Take a tennis ball and hang it from a string in your garage.
Ensure you hang it in the right spot so the ball will land just in front of your windshield when you pull in. This will help you park in the right spot without ever having to readjust. 

Clean Cobwebs

Try putting a tennis ball in a long sock or pantyhose (the longer, the better). Swing the ball towards the webs carefully.
The cobwebs will stick to the fabric, ultimately giving you a cobweb-free home! You can use this over and over.
