BASIC BUBBLES I

1/4 cup liquid dishwashing detergent (grease-cutters are best)
3/4 cup water
1 1/2 tablespoons light corn syrup

Mix all ingredients and let bubbles settle.

 

BASIC BUBBLES II

1 cup dishwashing detergent (Joy, Dawn or Ajax are best)
1 gallon water
1 tablespoon glycerin (optional-makes stronger bubbles)

Mix all ingredients and let bubbles settle.

 

BEST BUBBLES

6 cups water
2 cups Crystal Octagon dishwashing liquid
3/4 cup light corn syrup

Mix all the ingredients together in a dishpan. Put into a jar and use right away.

 

GIANT BUBBLES

1/2 cup Dawn® or Joy® liquid dishwashing detergent
4 1/2 cups water
3 to 4 tablespoons glycerin

In a large plastic bowl mix all ingredients gently so that foam doesn't form on top of the water. Skim off any foam that appears because it interferes with bubble making. Knot yarn, string, or twine into loops of different sizes, up to 30 inches in circumference. The larger the loop, the larger the bubble. Let string loops soak for a minute in bubble mix.

Using both hands, grasp the loop at two equally distant points and lift it gently out of the water with both sides of the string drawn taut. Open the strings about 1/2 inch apart, keeping the string taut. Lift this string form into the air, and a giant bubble will appear. Label the bubble mix and store it tightly sealed.

This recipe can be doubled or divided, as needed.

 

NO MORE TEARS BUBBLES

This is great for small children!

1/4 cup no-tears baby shampoo
3/4 cup water
3 tablespoons light corn syrup

Mix all ingredients and let bubbles settle.

 

PRETTY BUBBLES

1/3 cup dish soap or baby shampoo
1 1/4 cups water
2 teaspoons sugar
1 drop food color

Put into a small plastic bottle with a wide mouth. Be sure to label it!

 

SOAP BUBBLES

2 cups warm water
2 tablespoons liquid detergent
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon glycerin (optional)

Combine ingredients. Glycerin will make bubbles iridescent. Blow bubbles through wire loops or empty thread spools. To make lots of bubbles outdoors, place clean fly swatter in soapy water and swing it around.

 

SUPER BUBBLES

1 bottle regular bubble solution
2 tablespoons glycerin
2 tablespoons dishwashing liquid
1 wire coat hanger OR 12-inch length thin wire

Combine the first three ingredients and pour the liquid into a deep cookie sheet or long, wide pan with high sides. Make a giant blowing loop by untwisting the coat hanger completely and then reforming it into a big loop with a handle. Other shapes such as spirals and squares can be made with a length of thin wire. Remember to leave a little wire for a handle.

To use
Dip the loop into the bubble solution until it is completely submerged and then slowly lift it up and then gently stroke it through the air to form the giant bubbles.

Hint: For longer-lasting bubbles, store the finished mixture overnight in the refrigerator before using.
