Re: Stressful Stash

Even living alone, having company can be stressful sometimes... there aren't a lot of places I can hide blown up balloons. And I don't go to a terrible amount of trouble hiding the uninflated ones...

Re: Balloon size, microwave vs baking.

I did this with friends as a kid... it is also a good way to get a severe steaming burn

Re: Grounding Balloons

Anti static spray on your bed or clothes first will help!

Re: Electric pump nozzle adapters for large balloons

Try plumbing parts. They have sharp edges sometimes but you can always add a layer of electrical tape. Shoe lace or rubber band will hold the balloon on fine.

If you want to make a one way valve,...

Re: Static electricity

Anti static spray has worked OK for me. Spray it on the fabrics, not directly on the balloons (although it probably won't hurt).

One side effect of the static is the stuff that clings to the...

Re: Pigment or Defect?

Looks like a weak spot to me. It is true that most balloons will survive inflation but...... a defect is a defect. If you are paranoid, fully inflate and put a piece of tape over it to reinforce it....

Re: Group order of SA24s/SA36s from manufacturer - survey

No neck? That would be disappointing. Soft is great though. I'm pretty partial to the Cattex ones. Once they have been baked, they get enormous.

Re: Making Balloons

I make balloons at home, and agree with the above post. It is rather involved, and the results are hit and miss. But the upside is you can make whatever you please....

Re: Overinflated balloons

Back when you could get Q24s, I used to like the crystal blue ones. They would get enormous when baked. At least to my shoulders from the floor, so like 5 feet long.

I also had a baked yellow...

Re: i think they discovered my stash.

If you are that hard pressed for places to hide your balloons, you might have to resort to hiding them inside every day objects. Or put some in a bag and hang them from a string inside the vent or...

Re: Walmart 17 inch Balloons

I tried some as well. They are great quality. The 36" balloons have super long necks. I baked mine and prestretched the neck even larger. The neck alone extends about 2 feet when sitting or bouncing...

Re: Late delivery frustration

Here in the states with UPS and Fedex or the regular mail, I often times will pick up packages rather than let them sit on my porch all day. Is that an option where you live?

Re: Balloon smell

Boiling won't ruin the balloons. It has a minimal effect on the stretchiness. But the hot water will allow chemicals to clear from the surface of the latex and reduce the smell also. Whatever Chinese...

Re: Baking

Even just filling them with hot water will make most balloons grow a bit. A dryer isn't really hot enough to get the full effect. Most dryers only reach 150 degrees F. Maybe if you leave them in...

Re: Baking

By heating the latex, it becomes permanently stretchier. So yes a lot bigger but also a lot thinner depending how hot the latex was.
