What's the easiest way to twist close a balloon off of the classy wrap machine?

I feel like its so delicate and so tight at the top of the balloon when it's time to twist it off that I'm going to pop the balloon. Of the 4 I've tried, I popped 2!


ANSWER:

Hi there,

The first tip that comes to my mind is that you try inflating the balloon slightly below the maximum size. This should reduce the tension and make it easier for you to twist off the balloon.

On the Classy Wrap FAQ page, they mention another possible reason why the balloons pop... static electricity.

Quoting from their site:

"If your balloons are popping while you're making them, it could be due to static electricity. If the hairs on your arms are standing up while you are stuffing the balloon, it is a telltale sign of excess static. Solutions would be to rub the inside of the plexiglass machine chamber with a dryer sheet, or spray your arm with static guard."

You've probably seen this instructional video already, but just in case you haven't, here it is:



And this page gives the instructions in written form, illustrated with lots of photos:

Good luck with your next stuffed balloons! Let us know how it's going.
