How to make soap bubbles at home
What kind of child doesn’t like blowing soap bubbles! And many adults are not averse to pampering yourself with this fascinating activity.

Homemade soap bubbles that can be prepared for storage and stored in the refrigerator will help to avoid this.
Secrets of successful soap bubbles
Surely, many tried to prepare their own liquid for bubbles, but these attempts were unsuccessful and the balls did not blow out or instantly burst. The quality of the solution depends on the soap component. It can be ordinary soap, shower gel, dish detergent, bath foam or shampoo.
In order for the bubbles to come out good, it is important that such a product has a high foaming, and its composition contains fewer additional components — dyes and flavors.
To prepare the solution, it is recommended to use boiled or distilled water. So that the soap bubbles do not burst quickly and come out dense, sugar or glycerin dissolved in warm water must be added to the liquid. It is important not to overdo it, otherwise the balls will be difficult to blow. Ideally, you should, based on the proposed recipes, independently choose the proportions.
