    Lovely! We have tried a recipe in the past that involved glycerin. The bubbles would get really big but they would pop before coming off the wand. I hope to find something that works a little better! This looks great!

    Does it have to be Dawn dish soap in particular (for its properties or what not)? Or will any dish soap do?

    Thanks!

    Why sugar? Just curious. I always use dawn dish soap and water. Works fine and makes large lasting bubbles.

    Cool! I’m also wondering if any kind of dish soap would work, I live overseas so don’t have access to American brands :)

    Curious Why you use sugar instead of glycerin? Do the bubbles survive better with plain old sugar? Thanks so much!
