What is Bubble Solution?
Bubble solution is the liquid that’s used in those small bottles, which contain a small wand. You just get some of the solution on the wand and then blow into the circle (or another shape) on the wand! Watch to see how big the bubble gets and how long it lasts! Sometimes the bubbles even go for a long-distance before popping. There’s nothing more fascinating than watching bubbles!
Most bubble solutions are made with some type of soap (detergent), additives (which may include glycerine), and water. The liquid shouldn’t contain too much water and needs to have enough detergent for the bubbles to hold their shape for longer periods.
