How to Make Bubbles


Although store-bought bubbles are fairly inexpensive, with this recipe, you can make more than a quart of bubble liquid for practically nothing.

Things You'll Need

  • Food Coloring (optional)
  • Jars With Lids
  • Wire Whisks
  • Buckets Or Dishpan
  • 4 tbsp. liquid dish soap
  • 4 tbsp. glycerins
  • 1 qt. water
  • Mix water, liquid dish soap and glycerin in a bucket or dishpan.

  • Stir with a wire whisk until blended.

  • Let mixture sit for 24 hours.

  • Pour bubble mixture into small bottles or large pans, depending on size of bubbles desired.

  • Store unused bubble mixture in a jar with a lid.

Tips & Warnings

  • You can experiment by adding more or less glycerin or dish soap to achieve the desired consistency.
  • If you don't have glycerin, try using the same amount of corn syrup instead.
  • Use no-tears baby shampoo instead of liquid dish soap if you're worried about bubbles stinging children's eyes.
  • If desired, add a drop of food coloring to the mixture to make colored bubbles.
  • Blowing bubbles is always more successful if done outdoors.
