Bubble Solution Recipe

Bubble Solution Recipe

  by Sandra Merville Hart It was challenging to find bubble solution during the pandemic. We played in the backyard so often that we quickly went through a gallon of bubble solution. If you also had that problem, here is an easy recipe. Ask your parents or another adult for help making it. This simple recipe mostly fills a standard 28-ounce bottle of bubble solution. Save those old bottles and make your own.   Use a medium-sized bowl. 1 ½ cups dish soap 4 ½ cups water 2 tablespoons sugar   Combine these together gently or you’ll have lots of bubbles in the bowl. Mine turned out a little sudsy and I set it aside for a few minutes. ???? Store in a bottle until ready to use. Enjoy!   About Sandra Merville Hart Award-winning author Sandra...
