Tennis balls are quite the Swiss Army Knife of the sports world. The tennis ball finds its way into all sorts of useful roles off the court.
At This Old House, they've detailed a few novel uses for tennis balls, like buffing out a scuff mark and easing your parking woes: Erase scuff marks.
With a utility knife, cut an X in a tennis ball and slip it over the end of an old broom handle. Rub the ball over scuff marks on your wood floors; they'll come right off.
Install a parking guide. Hang a tennis ball from a string from the ceiling of your garage so that the ball touches the top left corner of the windshield when your car is properly parked. Now you'll know how far to pull in each time you come home.
