Did you know that it is entirely possible to blow up a balloon without the use of your mouth? Most of us are not aware of this fun fact, which is why clips like this exist. All you need to fill up a balloon is the 30 seconds that it takes to watch this clip and some basic kitchen staple items.
The best part about learning this trick is being able to impress your friends and family. You’ll also have the ability to win a number of bets at your next party or gathering. So what do you need in order to pull off this feat of amazement? A Coca Cola bottle, the balloon and some ordinary table salt.
You don’t even need guests to pull off this trick and enjoy it. It’s a great way to pass the time when you are by yourself and can serve as an unconventional science experiment. Or you can use this trick to entertain your children or grandchildren. Babysitters will also get a lot of mileage out of this trick, as it is sure to impress skeptical kids every time.
In order to begin this trick, take the deflated balloon, hold it open and add a generous helping of the table salt. Once this step has been taken care of, you will need to take the lips of the balloon and the soda bottle, stretching the lips over the soda bottle, while it is open, of course.
Then it’s time to take the bottom of the balloon and pinch it. After doing so, lift the entire contraption straight up, as this will allow the salt to fall into the soda with ease. The salt and the cola begin to interact with each other, which causes the liquid inside to become very fizzy.
The balloon becomes full when the liquid fizzes and creates gas, which acts as a replacement for the air that you would normally be using. It’s almost too good to be true and the process is so easy, even a small child can handle it.
Why not give it a try and let everyone know exactly what you think? Thanks to social media, you can even record your own video of you performing this trick and share it with all of your closest friends and family.
The next time you are looking for a cool party trick or a surefire way to impress the children who you are babysitting, just head to the kitchen and grab a balloon, a soda bottle and some table salt. It’s a wonderful way to pass the time or even win a few bucks from your skeptical buddies.
