How are soap bases made

Soap bubbles - make your own liquid

Today my daughter and I made the liquid for soap bubbles ourselves. I only knew how to combine water and washing-up liquid, which never worked for me. So today I browsed the internet and found it on Expli. We mixed this liquid together, put it in empty bubble containers and tried it right away. We were thrilled, even the little one cheered with joy while watching. The soap bubbles shimmered nicely in the sun and when they burst they splashed away visible drops.

I halved the recipe and took more baking powder, so here is "my" recipe, which is enough for 3 full soap bubble bottles that my daughter had already emptied:

Instructions: Soap bubbles - make your own liquid

Put 1 cup of lukewarm water in a bowl (not a mini coffee cup, but a normal one in which you can add tea, for example. This is also just barely full, a little less than I would put tea in)

add about a pinch of baking powder and stir well (my daughter took over)

Add a good 1.5 tablespoons of detergent (ours is a clear liquid-sensitive) and stir again

Finally add 3.5 tablespoons of soft soap (ours is thick, white and creamy) and stir until it is well mixed - the liquid for soap bubbles is ready.

I think you shouldn't stir too hard, otherwise it will foam. My 3 year old daughter's stirring was perfect.

Then use a funnel to pour this liquid into the clean soap bubble bottles.

Now the fun can begin.
