Introduction: How to Inflate Your Dented Ping Pong

Do you have dented Ping Pong ball?

With easy step video, I'll show you how you can inflate your dented Ping Pong.

Get a glass of cup and add hot water, place the Ping Pong ball into the hot water and sink the Ping Pong ball under the hot water for few seconds. It will inflate by itself. The air inside the Ping Pong expand under hot water and it inflated.

Please watch the video for more info.

or you could just get good 3 star pingpong balls that will improve your game play and they won't get squished, they'd sooner crack than squish.

Not in my experience. I don't know, maybe I use different 3-star tennis balls. They are more durable, though.

We have several ping pong balls around the house for my cats to play with. I'm going hunting for ping pong balls to fix!

author
saturnv7890 (author)I3uckwheat2008-12-04

basic laws, as temperature rises, so does pressure

I'll try this once I find the ping pong ball I got stuck in the bathtub drain...

author
Sunbanks (author)ray888j2008-01-07

It was a smiley face one. Now it has a dent in its head. I think I had to get it out with a toothbrush or something...

Awesome trick. This could really save a party (beer pong, when you only have one ball some idiot always steps on it).

author
bangbang007 (author)tiuk2008-01-06

author

I just boil mine in water, I will try this next time though.

author
Bran (author)2008-01-04

Phew! Saved one from the trash! Thanks, never would've thought it was possible. My nephews smash these all the time, so this'll help out bunches!

author
reedz (author)2008-01-04

That's great! Such a simple answer yet not many would think of it.
