Balloon Shine™ and HI-SHINE are liquids applied to a latex balloon that will help it from oxidizing (lose its shine) for up to 10 times longer than a latex balloon not treated.

WARNING: DO NOT use tire shine, Armor All, or any chemical to make your balloons shine. These chemicals will deteriorate the latex and can be toxic causing children or adults to get sick or have an allergic reaction. We strongly suggest only using  Balloon Shine™ anHI-SHINE to make latex balloons more shiny or clear because they are non-toxic.

How to Apply Balloon Shine™ anHI-SHINE

  1. Inflate the balloon
  2. Hold the neck of the balloon in one hand while pushing the top of the balloon against a table.
  3. Apply half a spray to each side of the balloon.
  4. Evenly apply the liquid using the glove provided with the bottle. Do not over-apply the shine to a balloon.
  5. Slowly rub the liquid into the latex with the application glove. Using this method will help to avoid fingerprints on the balloon. 

Treating balloons with HI-FLOAT® and Balloon Shine™ or HI-SHINE

  1. Begin by treating the balloon with HI-FLOAT. See the article How to Apply HI-FLOAT  
  2. Inflate the latex balloon with helium.
  3. Tie the balloon and attach your ribbon. Don't forget to secure the balloon to a weight. 
  4. Once the Hi-Float dries*, apply the balloon shine by following steps 1-4 listed above.

Please Note: It is important to let the Hi-Float dry before applying shine. The liquid in the balloon needs time to evaporate in order to create the seal inside. If you apply the shine before the Hi-Float evaporates you will not get quality results.

If Hi-Float is being used in a humid environment then you should wait for 3 to 4 hours before applying shine or Hi-Float. If you are in a temperature-controlled environment– then wait for 1 to 2 hours before applying. It is recommended not to use balloons in direct sunlight because it will damage and reduce the float time of your balloons.

*Do not use HI-FLOAT® products or shine products on Bubbles, or latex balloons inside of Bubble Balloons.
