Worker 11811's Big Bubble JUICE - Aug. 2014 Edit

Guar/PEO (J-Lube) Hybrid Mixture. Submitted by Worker 1181

This solution was derived through experimenting and combining with other recipes listed above.

Solution is quite viscous and "stringy." Produces resilient, easy to close, bubbles which can stand up to fairly brisk winds. Solution was formulated to be slightly thicker (more concentrated) for this purpose. The user might prefer to dilute this solution with water during use, based on conditions and preferences. Add water a little at a time, stir carefully to avoid suds and allow a few minutes for solution to stabilize before deciding whether to add more water. Author has achieved good results when solution is diluted by as much as 10% to 20%.

Author believes that order of procedure and addition of ingredients is key to producing this solution but this claim is not fully proven. The claim is made only for documentation of author's experience while experimenting with bubble solutions.

Author welcomes all commentary and criticism.

Thank you. :)
