Why do balloons deflate?

The small, individual helium molecules can escapethrough the tiny holes in the latex far more easily than theconjoined oxygen or nitrogen molecules can. Eventually they'll allget out, but the helium has a much easier time escaping. This iswhy your helium balloons deflate faster than the ones youfill with air.

Why do balloons deflate in cold air?

Cold air doesn't cause latex helium-filledballoons to deflate, but it does make heliummolecules lose energy and move closer together. This decreases thevolume inside the balloon and makes the shell of theballoon shrink and sink to the ground.

Can foil balloons be refilled with helium?

The good news is that balloons made offoil are both recyclable and reusable. If theballoons you purchase are in good condition, once theydeflate, you can fold them and store them away until anotheroccasion arises. Then, simply take the balloons to a floristshop or balloon store and have them refilled withhelium.

If you have no other use for the deflated Mylarballoons, simply save them to be reinflated on anotheroccasion. I've not seen a Mylar that I could not deflateentirely. You can buy small helium tanks to reinflatethem yourself or ask the local party store what they'd charge forhelium only.

If you want to do your helium-filled arch thenight before the event, I highly recommend you treat yourballoons with hi-float. If you are planning to do anair-filled arch, then it's fine to create the archthe day before.

Why do foil balloons last longer?

The reason that Mylar balloons stay inflatedlonger than those made of latex is that as a rubber material,latex is porous, meaning it breathes. Therefore, whether filledwith air or helium, the substance escapes slowly through thepores.
