Super (Simple) Bubble Recipe

I have to admit, I have tons of bubble recipes in my files…and I’ve never made one of them.  That changed this morning!  Now that I know how easy it it, I’m kinda embarrassed I’ve never made my own bubbles before.

Many of the bubble recipes I have use glycerin, but I didn’t feel like buying any glycerin.  I was happy to see I had a bubble recipe without glycerin!

Bubble Recipe (Without Glycerin)

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup dish soap (Dawn works well)
  • 1/4 cup light corn syrup

1)  Put all ingredients in a large cup, plastic jar, or other container.  Stir SLOWLY.

2)  Blow BUBBLES!!

You can easily double, triple, or even quadruple the bubble recipe!  Check out our Body Part Bubble Pop for a fun variation on bubble-blowing.

**Please keep this bubble solution outside.  It could possibly damage carpet or other indoor surfaces.

    Ooooh I will have to try this! The stuff from the store has been letting us down.

  2. Thank you for this recipe. I’ve tried a number of different recipes both with and without glycerin and none of them really work well. I’m going to try one this afternoon.

    It works! I agree with using DAWN because that’s what we used. Lots of “buboos” for my toddler to “Pop!”
