Talking How can I seal balloons without tying them?
Iíve just received an order of 24Ē and 3ft balloons but I donít like typing balloons this big as in my experience it damages and rips the mouth of the balloon, I canít buy balloon clips online as I dong edit my Mum finding them so is there an other way to seal them? Could I use something that acts like a balloon clip, thank you for your help

I have used bulldog clips to seal the end of the nozzle off before, they work well

I've used coins, a US quarter will seal a 16" and a US nickle will work on most smaller balloons. You might need need a big coin for a 3ft balloon.

A fully inflated 3ft balloon might be harder to hide than a clip.

Use a clip. Most balloon companies sell them and some for example balloons balloons united will send some with your order when you buy their bigger balloons.

Just tie a knot normally, but only pull the neck through halfway. It works for me!

I find 'half knots' work well for me. Clips similar to balloon clips are sold in hardware stores such as Robert Dyas's in UK.

I use half knots, it's a perfect solution for the short life of my balloons...

I use rubberbands. Keep twisting and looping it until it's tight, normally about 5 or 6 times.

I prefer it over a clip because of the sharper edges on the clip. Plus, more air can flow freely into the neck.

I've tried about everything over the years, half knots, balloon clips, rubber bands, paper clips but Ikea bag sealing clips are the ticket.

http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/10339171/

Cheap, readily available online, seal completely, open easily when you want them to but don't when you don't, can be reused about 100 times each, don't damage balloons, small size works well for <24" balloons, large ones work well for 24"+

Plus they are common household items so discreet if they "get away".
