Mega Bubble Formula!

Thank you for coming to Bubblopolis!  Perhaps you saw the Mega Bubble Man perform today or you participated in the Mega Bubble Arena and you want to make big bubbles too. That's awesome. The mega bubble formula is different than a little bubble formula. So be prepared to make the big guys!!

This formula is for one gallon of bubble juice


15 cups of tap water


1 cup of Ultra Dawn


1 tbsp (5 grams) Guar Gum


3/4 tsp Baking Soda

Now for the recipe instructions!

Ask your mom or dad for help.  Start with a 1 Gallon container that has an open top, like a pitcher with a top that comes off.

Caution! Do not drink this mixture. If you do, you may get a sick stomach. Drink lots of water to help.


3/4 tsp of Citric Acid Powder

Next pour in 15 cups of lukewarm water. I put both the hot and cold taps on full force simultaneously.

Measure 1 tbsp or 5 grams (ml) of Guar Gum and 3/4 tsp Baking Soda into a container that will also hold a cup of Ultra Dawn.

Add to that cup of Ultra Dawn. This is called a Gooey Mix!

Stir the soap, guar gum and baking soda 'til all the powder is mixed in. The color of the solution will change more and more as you stir to a light blue color. Do not add the Citric Acid Powder to this mixture!

Put the mixture to the side.

Now add 3/4 tsp of Citric Acid Powder into the tap water and stir. This will change the pH of the water to a good standard to receive the Gooey Mix.

Now stir the Gooey Mix into the water slowly. Try not to make too many suds.  If the Gooey Mix does not mix well, "grab" it in your hands and squeeze it into little "pieces" and stir more. It's kinda fun!!

Now let it sit for a few hours... until the next day. Oooh, can you be patient enough LOL!?

Of course you can try it right away too.

I test the solution by blowing multiple bubbles with one hand!

Note: Some bubble people use Glycerin or Baking Powder and other ingredients in their formulas. They constantly try out new ones to improve on their bubblemaking.

Note: After bubble-making, your solution will start to deteriorate. You can add water or more soap to improve it. When that fails, make a new batch!

Depending on the kind of water you use [hard water, sulfury] the amount of each ingredient can change too. Have fun and experiment. The Mega Bubble Man tests each solution by dipping Mayor ROY G BIV into the bubble bucket and sees how many bubbles he can make with one dip. One time he made 100 bubbles on 1 dip!
