Since spring is upon us and summer is just around the corner, many of you may be dusting off tennis rackets and digging up tennis balls. And in doing so, you’ll probably find a few tennis balls that have lost their bounce. Don’t despair… and don’t throw them away! Check out these clever ideas for repurposing tennis balls.
Get a grip. Cut a tennis ball in half and keep it in your kitchen drawer to use it when you need help opening a stubborn lid.
Hide-a-key. Cut a small slit in an old tennis ball and use it to hide your keys in a gym locker room. No one will bother a tennis ball at the bottom of your gym bag.
Dryer balls. Tennis balls make great dryer balls, which help dry clothes quicker and fluff up towels, blankets and pillows.
