Homemade Bubble Juice Recipe:
1 gallon of cold tap water (or distilled water)
5 fluid oz. of Palmolive Soft Touch Ultra with Aloe dish detergent--Joy or Dawn also works fine.
1 fluid oz. of glycerin. Available at larger Wal Mart stores in the pharmacy dept.
Fill a clean, plastic milk jug about 3/4 full of water. Add the dish detergent and glycerin. Put the cap on and shake to mix thoroughly. Add the rest of the water to make a full gallon and shake to mix. If possible, leave the cap off and let it set overnight.
Use various tools (straw, pipe cleaner, dinner plate, cereal bowl, paint brush) to great bubbles.
