How do you inflate the character balloons that are on a stick?Answer:Hi Nicole,The mylar (or foil) balloons on a stick are actually self inflating. The inflation process is interesting: it's initiated by breaking an internal packet of chemicals, stored inside the balloon. There are two chemical components, lemon juice and baking soda. They are completely non-toxic. The chemical mixing of the two ingredients releases carbon dioxide, which in turn inflates the balloon.These heart shaped ones by Ace Balloons explain the process as "hit - shake - inflated."Hope that helps!Margit

Hi, I'm new to the ballooning world and I'm having problem after problem with foil balloons exploding or deflating early. I've come to the conclusion

Can I blow up balloons the night before, store them inside and then take them outside the next day. In the afternoon? This would be for a July event.
