Homemade Bubbles

Homemade Bubbles


  • 6 Cups Water

  • ½ Cup Blue Dawn Dish Detergent (originals is best)

  • ½ Cup Cornstarch (called corn flour in the UK)

  • 1 Tbs. Baking Powder (powder…not soda)

  • 1 Tbs. Vegetable Glycerin (or 1/4 cup corn syrup)


1. Dissolve the cornstarch in water. Stir well.

2. Add remaining ingredients but be careful not to create too much froth.

3. Let mixture stand for at least one hour. Stir occasionally when the cornstarch begins settling to the bottom.


Some of the cornstarch will not completely dissolve.  Some might settle to the bottom when you are using the bubble mixture.  This should not affect the quality of the bubbles.

The more you make, the better the mixture gets!
