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 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.

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.

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. This will help the lid release and will protect your hands from strain.

Park In the Right Spot

If you never seem to be able to park in the right spot, tennis balls can help. Take a tennis ball and hang it from a string in your garage.

Try putting a tennis ball in a long sock or pantyhose (the longer, the better). Swing the ball towards the webs carefully.
