How to Make DIY Bubble Solution: Easy, Economical Recipe Keeps Bubbles Flowing by Elisa A. Schmitz 30Seconds
There's nothing like bubbles to keep kids (and adults!) smiling. But buying all that bubble liquid can get expensive, especially if you're using it in a bubble machine! (Did you know that bubble machines can help keep mosquitoes away? Learn more here!)
Try making your own bubble solution so you always have plenty on hand. Here's what you need for a big batch (you can play around with this; it's a very forgiving recipe):
- 2/3 cup Dawn dish-washing soap
- 2 to 3 tablespoons glycerine (available at the pharmacy)
- 1 gallon water
Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl or bucket. (If using a slotted spoon, you may even be able to blow bubbles through the slats!) Grab some wands and start blowing bubbles. Or, pour the mixture into your bubble machine and watch the bubbles fly!
