Do you like balloons with helium? Many people love to use these type of balloons to make decorations for birthdays, weddings, any surprise for birthdays or any other celebration. However, helium is often expensive and some avoid using it for that reason. That is why today we will teach you how to make floating balloons without helium.
Have you ever tried talking after sucking helium? It is very funny but not recommended. At parties it is common to see balloons floating, but this air that goes in is expensive, with this technique you can replace it. And the only difference you’ll notice is that you do not talk like Alvin and the Chipmunks if you suck it!
What you will need to do this craft is to follow the steps that we will give you below so that you can realize this genius idea. What you will need to create the floating effect that helium gives you, is a little vinegar and baking soda. See the simple and easy step by step that we will give you next.
The first step is to fill the plastic bottle and fill it with vinegar halfway, you can use the funnel and you will not spill anything. Then add the baking soda.
The second step is to place the balloon around the beak of the bottle when it is in contact with the baking soda and the vinegar will inflate immediately. After it is the size you want, remove it from the bottle and tie it so that nothing escapes. Repeat this with as many balloons as you want.
While the idea is clever and, yes, you can blow up a balloon this way, it might be easier to either invest in a helium tank or blow up your balloons with a little lung power.
