Fun with bubbles!

This is a recipe for fun and definitely not something you want to ingest. If you have ever blown a bubble just to have it break almost as soon as it started to fly, then this is the recipe for you. I donít know if it is necessary to use only Joy dish soap, but that is what I use.

Homemade bubble mix

6 cups water

1 cup corn syrup

2 cups joy dish soap

Stir water and corn syrup in a large bowl (at least 3 quart capacity).

Add dishwashing liquid; stir very gently until well mixed, trying not to make any bubbles. To use, dip (do not stir) bubble wand into liquid and blow bubbles!


* If using large bubble wands, pour solution into a cake pan or skillet for easy dipping.

* Stirring causes bubble solution to foam and foaming inhibits bubble formation. If foam develops, scrape off with a stiff card.

* Bubbles work best on humid days.

* Keep solution free from dirt, grass, bugs, etc.

* Bubbles are non-toxic but should not be consumed.

* Solution will irritate eyes; if bubbles get in eyes, rinse thoroughly with water.

Here is another recipe it uses glycerin, but since glycerin is more expensive you may not want to use it. The bubbles hold together better.

3 cups water

1 cup dishwashing liquid

1/2 cup glycerin

Mix as above

These bubbles work well on cold days!
