  • I just wated to know how to make long bubbles(more than 2.5 meter) with just glysiren ,water(pure or tap) and dishwashing liquid.

    The bubble will be made outdoor.

    Pls let me know about the bubble wand too,circle or not?with wood or not?etc.

    Thanks for your time and pls send me your answer:

  • Edward,

    You may already know this, but I just saw that your Uncle Bubble Montage video is on the Uncle Bubble site. Ta-da!

    Scroll to the bottom of this page: http://www.unclebubble.us/product-video.html

  • I'm doing a science fair project on the effect different solutions in soapy water have on the colors of bubbles and why these solutions have these certain effects. Your page has been a huge help. I am 15 years old and go to a school for mathematics and science, so they have high expectations for all of us. Thank you for this page!

  • Hello I am a bubble obsessed and crazed teacher, and am looking for a good concentrate recipe that would last a long time.  I also wanted to thank you so much for your site, I enjoy all the posts and the amount of information on your site is amazing! 


    Thank you so much!

  • Hi,

    This is Sumit from India, I am a toy enthusiast. And also work in the same field.

    I am trying to develop a small cottage industry for soap bubble water, at present it is not being manufactured in India and all these products are imported from China, which costs a lot and is not upto the mark. I came across a no articles but they are all DIY and cannot be used for manufacturing.

    Could you shed some light on how i should go about setting up a manufacturing process.

    PS i came across this article but not sure how to go about it.

    Thanks and Regards

  • I'd like to paint my wooden dowel bubble wand. Can you recommend a type of waterproof paint that won't adversely affect the bubble juice?

    • To be honest, I am not sure. I haven't tried it. But I would think that any paint made for exterior surfaces would be fine once thoroughly dry.

  • Edward,

    I am mentoing a group of 6th graders through a STEM focused program.  For their topic of interest they selected investigating bubbles.  We have some bubble experiment books that can lead them through some simple longevity, size, and "self-healing" exercises, and we will probably complete a few of the tests just to give them some level of confidence when manipulating the variables.

    While it is easy to follow a guide and repeat some standard experiments I was wondering if there is something that you think would be particularly beneficial for this wiki.  Some experiment you have on your "to-do" list that is age appropriate 11-12 years old and can be completed with a group of 5 of them, ideally within about an hour from set up to clean up.  Some pre-mix and measuring may be able to be completed prior to this time frame if required.  

    My goal for them would be to complete the experiment, maybe more than once in subsequent weeks and compile the results into a short video clip that could (with permission-still waiting on final word of this) be posted to youtube or even this wiki.

    When questioned, the kids seemed interested in experimenting with colors, size, or longevity of the bubbles.  If you have any suggestions on something that fits this and would like to get something knocked off your to-do list, please let know what you suggest.

      Andy, I teach STEM to 4th graders, and I had my students compare the circumference  sizes of bubbles made from a variety of bubble recipes. The students used a small wand made from a pipe cleaner, and blew their bubbles directly onto a large white sheet of butcher paper. After each bubble burst, they traced the outline of the bubble on the paper, measured the diameter, and calculated the circumference. They did 3 trials with each recipe and found the average circumference. They also had a partner use a stopwatch to calculate the longevity of each bubble. All results were entered on a data sheet, along with their conclusions/ inferences.

    • That is a great idea and I might use it next year.  Unfortunately this year is nearly over.  I have one more meeting with them and the current plan is to enjoy it with some KIB action if I can get a trough idea I have been working on to work out.


      I made the mistake of over-reaching and trying to get them to test multiple factors.  The program is  too constrained timewise to investigate three factors (PH, tap vs distilled, and dilution ratio) at once with good note taking and data collection.  So it resulted in fairly useless actual data collection, but the kids had a great time, and have learned a lot about bubbles and the possibilities with them.

  • Hi Edward, we have never communicated before but I have been using the Wiki for the last few years to improve my giant buubles. This is the first time that I am actually writing in. I have found that my lovely formula has stopped producing super giant bubbles. I have been retesting all my ingredients (degraded peo) and pH and have found nothing wrong except perhaps that the Dawn formula may have changed slightly. Could this be the case? Is anyone else finding a similar reaction with new Dawn?


    I have mixed six batches and am having less than optimal results in low or high humidity, and I called P & G and customer service seemed to hint at the fact that there have been these calls in the last few weeks but no change in formula has been communicated to them. I live in Canada and I am wondering if the formula up here has changed. I'd love to here from anybody else, perhaps I've just lost my touch.


    Thanx,

    a loyal follower of the wiki!

    • I still didn't find anything, but I can say the new empty bottles have the exact same weight as before. (I've been keeping records of this info).

    • The conditions have still not been very good where I live for bubbles. In the side-by-side sessions, the new and old Dawn Pros that I have are not performing noticeably differently.

  • Love your wiki! I direct people to it regularly for bubbling info. I've been bubbling for several years but have greatly increased my tools and skills starting a few years ago, thanks to this wiki and the SBF group. Time for me to share back a little. :-)

    I have succesfully made a bubble net using trellis netting:  http://amzn.to/1NzMoqY

    I don't have experience yet with any other bubble nets, so I can't compare, but so far I've been really pleased with the trellis netting. I tried first with a piece 17 squares across by 16 squares down, but it seemed to not open up easily enough and tangled too easily. Cut it down to 17 across by 9 down, and it works great! Kids love it, and it sure works better than a large tri-string on low humidity days! I'm planning on trying a 17 x 12 piece very soon. :-)

    Thanks for all your hard work sharing bubble info!

    cheers!

    Jim

    • The net is so much fun, I'm definitely going to have to try making one out of better material.

      I might rig up a NoDip system some time this summer, and I think a net would be lots of fun with it. I'm thinking that maybe since the trellis netting is so light weight that it might be good for using with a NoDip system? Or do you think I'd still be better off with bamboo yarn or something else with a NoDip system? I'd guess that cotton would not be optimal for a NoDip net setup because of weight and the amount of liquid it would use?

    • A NoDip net setup would be cool. I look forward to hearing how it goes.I have really no idea what would be optimal for such a setup. So, I am eager to hear how it goes.

      Best,

      Edward

  • Hi, I built a tri-wand a while back and I use 100% thick cotton rope to hold the solution. However, I built my poles using PVC pipe. At about 8 feet long, it's incredibly difficult to hold the poles up and enjoy the bubbles as I'm struggling to hold the pipes up due to the additional water weight from the solution. I've just gotten wooden dowels, about 8 feet long as well, but I'm worried about the weight issue again. I've yet to take them out and try them as it's too cold.

    Can you recommend light weight poles?
