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

How to Apply Balloon Shine™ anHI-SHINE

  1. Hold the neck of the balloon in one hand while pushing the top of the balloon against a table.
  2. Apply half a spray to each side of the balloon.
  3. Evenly apply the liquid using the glove provided with the bottle. Do not over-apply the shine to a balloon.
  4.  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 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.
