  • 6 cups water (Use RO water instead of tap water for better results, soft water is better than hard water for making bubbles)

For best results, you should let the solution sit overnight.

If you blow bubbles and they don’t seem strong enough, you can add more glycerin .

Procedure to make Bubbles

dip in bubbles solution

  1. Using the sticks as handles, dip the rope into the bubble solution.
  2. Lift it up and let the excess solution to drip off
  3. Either let the wind blow the bubble or just walk little backward or just blow using your mouth.
  4. Keep repeating this procedure to make more bubbles.


Hold arms high while walking backward. It will result in the strongest and biggest bubbles!

High humidity is the perfect time to create giant bubbles. Extreme hot and extreme cold is not good for giant bubbles as it will dehydrate the bubbles which will cause them to pop.

Well!  What do you think?  Are you going to give it a try? are you going to make your own bubble solution and bubble wand?
