By Carolyn Kay Neeley ; Updated April 18, 2017

Using certain brands of the foundational soap ingredients and/or substituting the glycerin with other things can help to produce higher quality homemade bubble-blowing solutions and help your bubbles to last longer.

Measure out 11 cups of room-temperature or lukewarm water, pouring them into the milk jug as you go along.

Add 4 cups of liquid dishwashing detergent to the water in the milk jug.

Add 1 cup of corn syrup to the detergent/water mixture.

Place the lid back on the jug, and gently shake and swirl the liquid around to mix it. For best results, do not shake vigorously enough to create a lot of foam.

Things You Will Need

  • Water
  • Dishwashing liquid (Joy or Dawn brands work best)
  • Corn syrup
  • Measuring cup
  • Clean, empty gallon milk jug
