Created to help and entertain people while they are in the pool, this cylindrical piece of polyethylene foam can be used for different purposes: floating, water playing, aquatic exercises… However they can also be very useful outside the pool to help you in daily simple problems and tasks. We select six nice and creative ways of repurposing pool noodles at home and we hope you like them!
1) Door Stopper
If you have toddlers at home you know how difficult it is to keep them safe with so many dangerous objects inside home. One of them is the door! They love open and close doors and their hands and fingers are always in danger with this simple action. To prevent them to get hurt, place a piece of pool noodle on the edge of the door.
2) Bed Protector
Another good use for pool noodles is placing them under the sheet of a kid´s bed to keep them save. Small kids are often falling out of their beds during the night and this idea will protect them if they roll while they are dreaming.
3) Organize Boots
Use pool noodles to keep your boots upright and avoid damaging their fabric.Cut the noodles in the same high as your boots and place them inside each pair. Your closet will be more organized and your boots save from those ugly wrinkles.
4) Pool Floating Cooler
This is a nice and creative idea for the ones who like spending the summer inside a swimming pool. You can make a floating cooler to place your drinks using a simple plastic box and some pool noodles. Cut the noodles and tie them with a rope or wire around the box. Fill the box with ice and drinks and have fun!
5) Trampoline Protector
Kids (and also adults) love trampolines and they are quite good to make exercises and have fun. However those springs in the edge are always dangerous especially for kids. A nice idea is using pool noodles to cover the springs and protect kid’s feet and hands. Apart from that, the trampoline will look more beautiful with colorful pool noodles around it.
6) Car Door Protector
Narrow garages and small places are a nightmare for drivers and car doors. Sometimes it is almost impossible get out of the car without touching its door on the wall, especially when we have kids. A nice, practical and cheap way to avoid the damage is fixing a pool noodle along the wall with some screws and a drill. Now you can open your door´s car without problem.
