Latex balloons refer to the raw material, latex is harvested from the rubber tree . Balloons made from this rubber are called latex balloons. All latex balloons have a shelf life (or expiration date), and depending on how you store your balloons, they can last for several years.
However, we recommend using latex balloons within two years of manufacture, as they can become brittle and burst after years of non-use.
Always store balloons in a cool, dry and well-ventilated area.
Balloons should be kept away from direct light sources, such as sunlight, incandescent and fluorescent lamps.
Store at room temperature between 68 and 72 degrees Fahrenheit (20 and 22 degrees Celsius).
Keep balloons away from any heat sources, such as motors and hot water pipes.
Do not store the balloon in a vehicle or garage where the temperature fluctuates.
Use a container with a good lid and do not overfill the container. It's important to let the balloon "breathe". If you pack containers too tightly, they may stick and pop out more over time.
Always rotate the balloons in the container (or shake the container) every few months. Overall, if you store your balloons well, they can last a long time.
