Our Best DIY Bubble Solution

My mother-in-law has always been the master DIY Bubble Solution maker. 

She has a lot of Grandkids (who are mostly grown now) and has made bubbling a fun family memory for them year after year. 

I hope to continue this tradition with my own Grands.

DIY Bubble Solution

In preparation for this post, my Granddaughter helped me test some of these solutions to see which actually did the best job of making BIG bubbles.

Some homemade bubble mixes recommended Joy or Ajax dish soap, some used corn syrup, others used sugar. 

Each bubble solution had different proportions of ingredients. 

We have determined these homemade bubbles to be the best and most bubbly!

So, make your own bubbles with this recipe.

Our Favorite Bubble Solution

12 Cups Water

3 Cups Dawn Dish Soap

3 Tablespoons Glycerin

Stir gently when mixing.
Let the solution set 1 week before use.
Use a glass container – a milk carton will eventually leak if left too long.
Dip wand into solution, don’t stir with it.

Blowing bubbles

Warm weather is a perfect time to head outside and blow bubbles with your Grands!    Enjoy this DIY Bubble Solution – the best solution around!

B is for Bubbles.

Keep Passing Down the Love,

Ha ha, I'm not surprised Dawn was the best brand for DIY Bubbles. I've heard that before, that they have the best soapy solution for the best bubbles ever!
