Default Hot weather and looning
Does hot weather affect the way u use your loons? For me the heat ruins it because it makes me extra sweaty and sticky skin ruins the feel of the balloons

That counts for me too. But when it's hot I like to play with inflatables. When it's colder I like to play with balloons.

Inflatables in the heat sounds like a good idea. A fun way to cool down

To be honest I don’t really blow too many balloons up when it’s hot, they oxidise too quickly and I hate the smell and feel of old or weathered balloons!! The winter is loads better they last loads longer. There was helium balloons at an event we were at today but they’d all been floating in a tent after being inflated and were already going off!!

I don't mind when they oxidise but fresh latex definitely smells better than old latex. Winter is defiantly better weather for it but then again I prefer winter to summer as I over hear easily.

I love both fresh from the bag balloons & aged, oxidized, smelly balloons!
I mostly play in a cool, climate controlled room during the summer but sometimes I'll turn my HVAC off & get HOT n' STICKY with my 'loons..... to each their own!

The heat doesn't bother me at all. If they stick to me I only like it better, but then I'm quite content with just hugging anyway. Sometimes I blow up whole piles and leave them on my bed for days. I kind of enjoy coming home and seeing how they've changed, in looks and in feel. When I wake up or come home, sometimes I find little pieces of one that blew... I'm not sure why, but I kind of enjoy that too (though not always! lol). Also, to me it seems like they have more give and they feel softer. A B2P can be really hard for me with a fresh balloon, but with an oxidized one I always feel like the bang will be a bit more gentle and not as explosive. I've done a few accidental B2Ps because the balloon was so old it wouldn't tighten up again. Oops... But I love fresh ones too!
