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
1/8 tsp [a pinch] 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.
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!
To learn more of the science behind bubbles and to use the string method of bubble making...
1/8 tsp [a pinch] J-Lube
Pour in 15 cups of lukewarm water. I put both the hot and cold taps on full force simultaneously.
Don't add soap yet.
In a small mug add 1 tbsp of the 3 tbsps of Ultra Dawn.
The above photo shows what I do for 4 gallons worth of bubble solution. Yours will be much smaller.
Measure a pinch of Guar Gum into the mug.
Add a pinch of Baking Soda
Measure a pinch of J Lube [optional] into the mug.
Stir all ingredients in mug vigourously. 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!!
Add a pinch of Citric Acid Powder into the water and stir first. This will change the pH into a standard that will receive the Gooey Mix well.
The above photo is several mugs with ingredients... but for 4 gallons worth of bubbles each!
