Self Sealing Balloons
by: Margit

Hi Nicole,

The mylar (or foil) balloons on a stick are actually self inflating.

You'll find a nice selection at Ebay if you search for "self inflating balloon".

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.

All the best,
Margit
