Homemade Bubble Solution

  • Kids love blowing and chasing bubbles when the weather is nice, but feeding that habit can get a bit expensive. Here is a simple recipe you can make at home any time you run out of bubble solution.

    Liquid dish soap (Dawn 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

    Pour 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. Add 1 tablespoon of glycerin or 1/4 cup of corn syrup 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. (Note: If you used "Ultra" dish soap, double the amount of glycerin or corn syrup.)

    *You can make bubbles from just water and soap, but the glycerin or corn syrup allows you to make bigger and stronger bubbles.
