A couple of tips for tips!
I used a 260 balloon tip as a replacement cap for the nozzle on a can of 3-in-1 oil. Also a 350 tip as a temporary cap for a a sharpie till the lost one turned up.

I've just seen another use for the bags the balloons come in.  Apparently a balloon decorator in the USA has crochet the bags into a shopping bag / tote.  Most impressive although I suspect a bit hard going on your hands if it's full. It's in the latest balloon images if anyone is interested.

I tie one end of a 260 to my house key and the other to my belt loop. I open the door and the key jumps right back to my side. Also makes finding the key with full hands much easier.

When I was crashing at a friends he clogged his toilet. I inflated a 260 and handed it to him. Turns out they can snake a drain pretty well.


As always,
Dylan

As a weapon.... Snap grabby kids hands when reaching into my balloons.

A great substitute for Duct Tape.

I wrap a balloon around the end of my Kazoo so I don't chip my teeth.

A nozzle as a nasal Dialator... really!

My children have pillows filled with balloons ... they say it smells like daddy?

Jewelry my kids make craft bracelets with balloons

Fill with sand for a stress ball or a weight, also juggling ball

Tip on the end of a table so not to scratch the floor.

Never thought of using a 260 in this situation  :shock:   Must keep it in mind though!!

If you are doing lots of balloons on sticks, use an uninflated round to stuff the end of the sticks in. You'l get about 10 in there.

September 2010 - Other uses for Balloons

I have 3 categories: 1. I make earrings and bracelets 2. For noses and middle of flowers and 3. Use all the un-useable scraps for pictures (So instead of using paint I will use balloons) - I'm just gathering all the scraps up at the moment. I throw nothing away. I will post pictures soon. I love all the other uses in this thread!

There are a lot of very useful ideas on here...I love them all.....so it proves our heads are just buzzing, full of balloon latex and air....I am relieved to find out it's not just me then ;)

This doesn't really fall into this category, but I wasn't sure where else to post it...it's not another use for a balloon but....I did use my salad spinner the other day to spin dry my juggling balls when they got wet, well soaked really, after working 'under cover' (I use that phrase very loosely) on a very wet, stormy day. (My washing machine was already being used.) It did the job brilliantly...and then I lined them up neatly on top of the radiator to finish off-and they were ready for action the next day,result!
