Re: Accidental pop advice

If they are wet and pick up any grit from the bathroom floor, that will do it.

Re: Question

Uhh, the worst I can think of??? Like, the worst? The worst. Having nieces or nephews hiding in your closet, and almost discover your used stash, when you're not home.

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: Balloon smell

I am also suspicious of the Chinese ones. If you are worried about acquiring a latex allergy or other adverse health effects, it would be a good idea to put them in a strainer and submerge in boiling...

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.

Re: Liquid latex

It depends on the type of liquid latex. I have made balloons with mask latex, but they are totally different and much harder to work with. You can also use thicker latex, and it ends up making a...

Re: Cattex 55 shrinkage after use....

I tried to pop some wedding balloons in the freezing cold once. They would puncture but not really pop. It was strange. But once you touched them, they would shrink just as you described. Must have...

Re: Best 36-inch balloon?

For 36" size, tuftex is my favorite because they can be necked. The ones from kaboom had a lot of defects, but another batch necked amazingly :)

Re: What age was your 1st pop?

This used to happen to me a lot but not on purpose. I would just reuse balloons too many times or not know when to stop inflating them. Many accidental B2P lol
