I just use the container that tennis balls came in

Holds the balls, keeps the damp in so they are still most at show time,
no mess no fuss,

but my wife still wants to know what happened to the container and why her balls are loose Smile

I had a book many years ago from which I first learned sponge ball routines. Now You See It Now You Don't by Bill Tarr and illustrated by Barry Ross.

Hey, you can't go wrong with Bill Tar's Now You See It Now You Don't.

... I don't believe I will find anything in Tarbell on sponge balls specifically...although I'm sure there are slights I can use with them.

Oh yes you can Smile At the time there weren't precut sponge balls, Dr. Tarbell tells you to cut your own and there are several routines using them.

I like the sponge ball routine in Mark Wilson's Complete Course. In my opinion, it's just the right length, and it's got a great finish with all the balls disappearing.

One of the last living 10-in-one performers. I wanted to be in show business the worst way, and that was it.

I've never had a problem with them, but I do try and avoid having keys in my sponge pocket because of the sharp edges. Mine stay fine. The only problem I did once have was storing a giant sponge ball in a case that was too small and it took some time to get back into shape. But as a rule no problems.
