How to Find a Vinegar & Baking Soda Balloon Inflation Chart

Vinegar and baking soda are common household items that can be used to inflate a balloon when mixed properly. The process occurs from the chemical reaction between the items; baking soda is a chemical known as sodium bicarbonate, and vinegar is acetic acid. A vinegar and baking soda balloon inflation chart is an informational document that tells you how much of each substance to mix and how to insert it into the balloon.
