This recipe is used by the Questacon Maths Squad using ingredients available in Australia.
  • 3 parts dishwashing liquid (Morning Fresh works well)
  • 7 parts hotwater
  • 1 part glycerol (or sugar)
The glycerol helps the bubbles to last longer, by preventing them from drying out. Glycerol is available from pharmacies and some supermarkets. If you cannot get any glycerol, use sugar instead.
Mix the ingredients very thoroughly. Maths Squad  mix their batches for around half an hour.!
Water quality affects your bubble mixture: hard water doesn’t work as well as soft water. Try distilled water instead of hard tap water.

Consider the ground surface as some will become slippery.
Consider the surroundings as children will chase the bubbles and focus on them and not the chair, tree, pole etc.
