Summer is right around the corner which means that it will soon be time to get the pool ready. When replacing your pool toys this year you might want to hang onto your floating pool noodles.

As there are lots of ways they can be upcycled into cool projects that make your home a better place. And if you don’t have any extra pool noodles, you can buy them at the dollar store.

Here are 10 brilliant ways to repurpose pool noodles:

1) Car Door Bumper

Slice a pool noodle and affix it to your garage door. This will serve as a bumper so you and your family won’t scrape the car doors or your garage walls. This is especially great for narrow garages!

2) Car Seat Footrest

Does your kid constantly kick the back of your seat? Use a rope to attach a pool noodle to the bottom of their car seat so they have a place to put their feet other than the back of your seat.
