Frequently asked questions about fluorescent balloons
If you’ve blown enough air into the balloon, the thing itself will last for a few days. The glow in the dark effect will last somewhere between 12 and 24 hours, depending on the light source that was used to charge the fluorescent components of the balloons.
There is a difference between colors that are just advertised as being “neon” and actual glow in the dark or under UV blacklight balloons. Neon generally means that the colors are very bright during daytime, but this doesn’t necessarily mean they will glow in the dark. So when buying balloons, you have to look for the specific label that says “glow in the dark”. The thicker the balloons, the better they will glow.
Yes of course you can. If you have a pink glow in the dark balloon for instance, you could put a different color glow stick inside to have a double glowing effect.
This is very unlikely. LED lights may feel hot to touch, but they produce light at a much lower temperature than incandescent light bulbs, who could start a fire when overheating. If you inflate a LED balloon with helium, you will have to be careful not to approach a flame.
White balloons in itself do not glow in the dark if they have not been treated with a fluorescent substance. But white balloons will glow under UV blacklight.
To activate the LED light inside the balloon, hold the top of the balloon with one hand and pull the tab out of the neck of the balloon with your other hand. Inflate the balloon to the desired size with a pump. Then, tie a knot in the neck of the balloon to stop it deflating.
