Repairing your ping-pong ball: step by step

Tip number 1: Use boiling water

It's very simple:

  • Take a glass of water, boil it in a small bowl and throw your ball in.
  • Naturally, the water will warm the remaining air in the ball and will expand until it reaches its roundness. It's important to be careful, as the ball must not be left in the water. too longthe heat will destroy its coating.
  • To make it quick, you can also immerse the ball in boiling water.
  • Of course, she's not going to drown. a tough thing heat and non-sharp.
  • Wait for a twenty seconds or so and get your racket ready for a new game.
  • The next step is to rcarefully stretch the ball in the water. Be careful to use silicone tongs or a spoon, otherwise you risk burning your fingers.
  • To dry the ball, simply use a handkerchief or a permeable cloth so that the material absorbs the moisture.
  • Let it dry for about 10 minutes and here we go again.

It should be noted that drying should not be carried out on a flat surface, as the ball may deform and lose its spherical shape.

Tip number 2: Use a hair dryer

Yet another way, just as simple as the one above:

  • Plug in your hair dryer and put it in maximum temperature. The chemical reaction remains the same, and the heat returns the ball to its original shape.
  • Once the maximum temperature has been reached, take your ball and hold it by the ends of your fingers.
  • Don't put the ball too close to your hair dryer. a distance of 10 to 15 centimetres to prevent damage.

Basically, the air trapped in the ball will expand and it will return to its original shape. Note that, when drying, put the cabossée part in front of your hair dryer.

For both cheats, the ball might no longer have its previous state in terms of color, but with its resumed shape, there's plenty to make your day.

Over time, the coating on your ball will lose its aesthetic appeal, so we suggest you visit this site to buy it at a low price:
