How to put a skewer thru balloon (very easy)
-dish soap detergent
Put some dish soap detergent on your fingers and rub it all over the skewer.
Push the skewer into balloon. Make sure you push it in on the top and come out on the bottom.
Top and bottom part of balloon have more rubber than other areas of balloon. Pressure is also lower in those areas which make balloon harder to pop in those areas.
