I have only seen it for sale in America, it has to be genuine pure citrus spray and not a fake smelling one.

Wait a minute! Don't pop them! As one who got in trouble from the wife for throwing all my practice pieces in the garage and making a mess, here is what I started to do a couple of years ago. Come to find out, it takes care of the mess and is great for inexpensive advertising:) Rather than pop your practice pieces, how about delivering them to someone or some place who can enjoy them? As most of us experience, even what we consider "basic" can make almost anyone smile. Retirement homes, preschools, small businesses, potential restaurants, local fire/police departments, hospitals, and many other establishments would absolutely LOVE to receive these balloons. Let's say we have been practing a balloon dog. Now we have a theme which gives us ideas of where to bring the pieces. Months ago I was practicing Scooby Doo. Instead of throwing in in to the garage, I delivered it with my business card of course to the local pet store. They LOVED what I brought them and hired me for a grand opening of another store. Another example is a giant mouth with teeth I was working on a while back. I delivered this piece to a local dentist and have been working for this client ever since. This technique has proven VERY useful in connecting with future clients and gigs. Plus it gets rid of our messes. I suggest giving it a try, you just might have as much fun as I did with it. Take care all!!

Hey Jack,
what a pleasure to meet you here. It's me... from Germany! I am the one asking all the time for your One-Ballooners. :D

By the way: I love the term "JOB". Do you know what this stands for? --> Jack's One Ballooners !! :geek:

Thanks for your advice. But remember: Not all twisters are as good as you are... I am an absolute beginner and I don't know if I would get bookings from my very basic balloons.

Cheers,
Carsten

If you are practising why not just give the balloons away to a local nursey or local children. We found when we practised if we did not get rid of the balloons we did not make another one.

Must admit living at the side of a canal, there are always a lot of people around for us to give them to... even the people on the boats passing used to get them..

It gives so much more pleasure than popping them!!! although I have to admit popping balloons is a great way to release stress..

As im still only a advanced begginer when ive made models for practice i either give them away. Or ill untwist and cut as close to the knot saving most of the balloon and put it in my scraps. Not only does it save money but i also get some decent sized scraps to use again

when I first started many years ago (to many to mention) I used to take my attempts to the children's ward at the local hospital, the kids loved them even though some of them wasn't that good.
This thread has reminded me it is something I should perhaps start doing again.
