      We had a blast with this soap bubble recipe over Memorial Day. We opened up the pool and I had my kids plus countless nieces and nephews. We have bubble makers of all sizes. You should have seen the yard and pool area full of bubbles floating around. Great fun and much cheaper than buying the stuff. I'll keep a jug of this around all summer long. Thanks.

      This recipe is fantastic. It is great for children and adults. LOL. I do recommend not using it on a deck or driveway because the glycerine makes surfaces sticky and causes spots. Besides this, you can't go wrong with this recipe. My oldest is 17 and I have made it since she was one. Give it a try.

      This is wonderful! You can see the bubbles if you make this and pour it from a height into another dish/container in which you want to store it. I made this this afternoon to give away as belated Easter gifts to lots of my "little friends"! They're gonna luv you, Auntie Charlotte, for this;) THANKS in loads for posting a marvellous recipe! BTW, I used Lux liquid(dish washing soap) for this and this also happens to be my first glycerine used recipe in the kitchen!!
