    Soit : Faire une ubrique" Bulles " sur mon site et mettre un lien sur WIKI

    • Hi,

      Great to hear from you. I hope you won't mind that I reply in English. My French is not very fluent. If you would like to add articles here that would be great. Besides being able to post articles in the main space, every user also gets a blog space which Rick Findley , for example, has put to great use sharing his many bubble inventions and experiments. I use my blog space for my ongoing experiments before I feel that the conclusions are solid enoug to move to the main site.

      Best,

      edward

  • Hi Edward! I've been experimenting with creating my own bubble juice for a while meow however, I do still like to try out commercial bubble mixes. I searched for Gazillion Bubble Solution thru the Soap Bubble Wiki but, was unable to find any reviews. It is possible I'm not looking in the right place... anyways I was curious if you have ever tried it and what your thoughts were on it? Thank You! S.perez87.ri@gmail.com

  • Hey Edward,

    I picked up a Rubbermaid Professional Plus Commercial Blend Mop mophead from Walmart on Friday (Colorado) on 6/22/18 and found that the model number was 1968875 and not X884.  Have they changed the model number or is it a different model?  The packaging the same, save for a few lines of text on the front of the package.

    Thanks for all you do!

    • I have no idea. It does look pretty similar. They make a number of mopheads that people like. Please let me know how it works out.

    • Hello,

      Good to hear from you. You will find recipes and suggestions about where to start on the Recipes page. You will also find suggestions about getting start with tri-string wands on the page Getting_Started_With_Tri-Strings.

      I prefer to provide information here on the wiki rather than in private email messages.

      Best regards,

      Edward

  • 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!

    • eGoo has a long shelf-life in concentrate form. I have diluted concentrate that was 3 years old which worked perfectly. It also is quite concentrated. You will want to experiment with your dilution preference and tweaking the amount of PEO that you use.

      Best,

  • 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.
