Possibly: Having an enlarged prostate may cause unwanted urinary symptoms but should not make it feel "good" although it may. The symptoms that patients develop are usually bothersome and not one of feeling good.
Dr. Michael Michaels
Urology 53 years experience
No: No. At age 26 you don't have to worry about enlarged prostate.

Could I use a normal household item, or something from the hardware store, to shrink my enlarged prostate?

Never: There are no household items you can use to "shrink" the prostate gland. In fact, this would be very dangerous and can cause permanent damage. It is only treated with prescribed medications or surgery depending on the symptoms. See a urologist if you have difficulty with urination.

Sometimes treatment of an enlarged prostate can cause erectile dysfunction . Proste surgery and medications such as alpha blockers and 5ARIs can do this.

Not really: There are some natural remedies for the prostate, but most prevent enlargement and in the studies done in the german literature have not been shown to actually shrink it.
