Question What do you do with old balloons?
taking into account you do not pop balloons, do you trash oxidized/old balloons?

If they're not printed and I can tell that they probably won't survive being inflated, I throw them away.

I usually fill them with water in the bath till they pop (won't be very loud) it's surprising how big they go sometimes.

Usually I accidentally pop balloons long before I'd throw them out intentionally. If I do want to get rid of them for some reason, I usually just pop it.

I'll throw them away if I feel like they've gotten really old and have fulfilled their purpose.

I'll pop them, even tho I'm a non-popper. I like the challenge. And some guys really appreciate it on cam too. Given how much other people like it, it feels bad just throwing them out. It's good to share!

When it's time for them to go I just snip them around the neck with some scissors. My wife will get rid of them too if they are not stored away somewhere as she hates the smell of balloons. Now the warmer weather is with us I will have less balloons out due to the quicker oxidisation of them

I've actually had a long standing fascination with old balloons. Especially ones inflated that are starting to shrink n wrinkle a little. But I really love big old stretched balloons that I'll slowly deflate down to that baggy, flacid state before clipping the neck closed so I tend to keep balloons for as long as I can- unless they burst whilst being ridden on whilst fully inflated.

I just keep using them until they do eventually pop. The pop doesnt bother me at all, i just don't do it intentionally because I see it as a waste of a balloon.
