Default Balloon size, microwave vs baking.
Hi! I saw something interesting the other day on youtube. Someone put an inflated balloon inside a microwave, the balloon resisted almost a minute without pop, so an idea came to my mind, what if I put an uninflated balloon inside the microwave and set a 30 seconds round, do you think it could work as baking do in terms of size??

Why not try it?

I've experimented a bit with baking (partially) inflated balloons as opposed to regular balloons, and almost the second you put them into the oven, they begin stretching and expanding, so I don't expect they'd last very long in the oven (I've not left one in long enough to pop before). If it took a minute to pop in the microwave, then the microwave probably isn't very effectively heating the balloon, so I wouldn't expect it to be more effective than the oven.

They expand while inflated in the oven because air expands when hot. Also the heat makes the latex more stretchy. Microwaves don’t heat anything directly. They excite the water molecules in food to cause them to heat up. If they don’t get very hot in the microwave, there’s simply not enough water to cause it to heat up. Haven’t tried baking myself, but hot water makes balloons stretch a lot.

So if I put some water inside the balloon, do you think It will work as baking but with a microwave? Or it will damage the latex??

It’ll turn into steam and inflate the balloon. It’ll also get quite hot. Don’t do it for too long as it might melt the latex.

Simple answer is this:

NEVER EVER USE A MICROWAVE TO DO STUPID STUFF LIKE THIS!

It's dangerous, it's reckless, and you're likely to injure yourself, someone else, or even (potentially, and in the most extreme of scenarios) causing a fire or power-outage.

If you need to see what happens, look on YouTube, and I'm sure that you'll find plenty of other people who have done this, and got "burned" for doing so (maybe not literally).

But, seriously! NO, DO NOT DO THIS!

I sometimes like to masturbate with balloons that are filled with hot water. Microwaves are actually excellent. Just don't overdo it. If the water gets too hot, let it cool for a while.

Tie a balloon with a little water and microwave it and the whole microwave will explode - expensive and dangerous.

Boiling water is not hot enough to bake the latex, so it might stretch a little more but not much. Microwaves are not good at making anything hotter than boiling.

Why does there always have to be safety sallys everywhere you go to ruin people's fun lol. A microwave will not explode if you put a balloon in it. Even tied. (Although I'm not sure why anybody would tie it b4 they put it in there if the goal is to increase the size when you take it out) Unless you actually believe that a popping balloon has enough power to destroy hard plastic and steel. In which case water balloons would be used in war rather than parties haha. As far as the effectiveness vs baking in an oven, I'm going to try it this weekend myself a few different ways and see what happens.
