Re: Heat stretching Latex

I use ziploc bags, that way I can keep the balloons intact and dry while also drying clothes.

Re: How to Inflate GL1200

I've blown up GL1200s by mouth many times. It's not too difficult, it just takes a while - I can blow one up to rated size in about 15 minutes if I focus on it.

Re: Heat stretching Latex

There are two main ways that I've used:

1. Baking them in the oven. Works best for new (never inflated) balloons - put them in for 5-15 minutes at 290F, then blow them up while they're still...

Re: Untimely pop

There's always unexpected pops. My last SA-24 popped while I was playing with it, although I knew I was pushing it by overinflating it.

Re: What is the biggest amount of helium ballloons you have played with ?

Hmm... Kind of curious how a Cattex 32" longneck would go, especially if pre-stretched a bit so that the neck fills first.

Re: Go on confess- What's the most futile thing you've attempted with a baloon?

Solution: Only blow them up by mouth. Much harder to read a text while still blowing it up.

Re: Old balloons

Try heat stretching balloons, it produces a somewhat similar effect, making them much softer and stretchier. You can put them in the dryer on high heat for 15-30 minutes (use the lower end of the...

Re: Tuftex 17"

They can overinflate to 20" or more if you're careful, but how much they can take when you're bouncing on them depends on your weight and how vigorous you are

Re: Removing beachball valve flaps

The way heath dragon does it is the most effective way that I've tried, but does take some elbow grease. I also make sure to keep hold of the flap once it does detach, and then press it back into the...

Re: Tuftex 17"

The degradation can be slowed significantly if you keep them in an air-tight container in a closet or something, where they're not in sunlight and the temperature is consistent. I have several TT36s...

Re: Contest! There she blows...

My back of the hand math says 306, but since this is a looner forum, I'm going to assume that we have more practice with large breaths and go with 275.

Re: Favorite B2P balloon??

I usually prefer Amscan balloons for popping in general. They're cheap (compared to cattex/tuftex/qualatex/etc), available in local party stores, and are strong enough that it's a fun challenge...

Re: Balloons vs Infatables

I usually prefer balloons, but adding ATBC to an inflatable can make them stretchy and bouncy like balloons, while still being a very different experience (different texture, smell, reactions, etc)

Re: Balloon ban

Most of the articles I can find specifically mention helium balloons, it's not clear whether these regulations make a distinction or not.

Re: Linden Twixit Clips

I've used their smaller clips and they work great - easy to open/shut, affordable, and durable. I've used the small, medium, and large ones, which work for everything up to a GL1200 with ease.

Re: Inflatable Orca

If you take a Bestway orca and add 3 oz of ATBC to it, it becomes very stretchy and malleable, almost like a balloon. it also blows up a lot larger, but you have to be careful not to overdo it or a...

Re: Running low on my q24 stock what to buy

Cattex 32" longnecks, are very durable, but they're not as tight as a Q24, so you have to be more careful of overinflating and popping them. Otherwise, they're a very good substitute for the Q24 IMO...

Re: Anything new with beach balls lately?

My guess is that they can't pull the same trick with balloons since they stretch out after the first inflation, and the uninflated size is somewhat inconsistent anyways.
