Bubbles You Can Touch

Bubbles will work with any mixture of soap and water, but with the addition of one ingredient you can create a super bubble that will perch on almost any surface.

Here's the recipe:

  • Liquid dish soap (Joy or Dawn brands work best. Try to find one that doesn't say "Ultra")
  • Distilled water (tap water is okay, but distilled water makes the best bubbles)
  • Clean container with lid
  • Glycerin or light corn syrup
Here's What To Do:
  • Measure 6 cups of water into one container, then pour 1 cup of dish soap into the water and slowly stir it until the soap is mixed in. Try not to let foam or bubbles form while you stir.
  • Measure 1 tablespoon of glycerin or 1/4 cup of corn syrup and add it to the container. Stir the solution until it is mixed together.
  • You can use the solution right away, but to make even better bubbles, put the lid on the container and let your super bubble solution sit overnight.  (If you used "Ultra" dish soap, double the amount of glycerin or corn syrup.)
  • Dip a bubble wand* or straw into the mixture, slowly pull it out, wait a few seconds, and then blow. 
You can make your own bubble wand by cutting off the tip of the wider end of a plastic pipette.

Have Fun!!
