Warning! This post is only for fun! However, since having fun relieves stress, and reducing stress is one of the 5 habits for healthy skin, I guess there is some practical application here.
In the video, I make a GIY (Green It Yourself) bubble recipe using a combination of ½ cup (120 mL) Sal Suds, ½ cup (120 mL) corn syrup, and 2 cups (480 mL) distilled water.
However, in my testing, I experimented with a range of other ingredients. Several of them worked reasonably well, and if this is what you have on hand, here are some substitutions you can try:
- 2/3 cup (160 mL) Castile Liquid Soap in place of Sal Suds
- ¼ cup (60 mL) glycerin in place of the corn syrup
- 1 cup (240 mL) of simple syrup in place of the corn syrup; reduce water to 1 ½ (360 mL) cups
There’s no preservative in my formulation, so this isn’t for long–term storage in your garage all summer. Use it in a week or so.
A huge thank you to my awesome nephew and niece for their bubble blowing (and popping!) help! And to Tucker, the noseless wonder, for his super brief cameo.
