Each pack of illooms contains deflation stickers to make it easy to deflate the balloon. Peel the deflation sticker off the backing sheet then place the sticker around the knot of the balloon. Once in place use a pair of scissors to cut off the knot and the balloon will deflate quickly without popping. This should be done by an adult. Please do not pop the balloon without using the deflation sticker, as bursting the balloon can cause injury.
