Creating Waves of Awareness

Just for fun because it's beautiful. Remember blowing bubbles and the rainbow colors? We used to make up our own liquid soap bubble mixtures. And, to make wands out of pipe cleaners or other objects. We also had large bowls and all sorts of large wands to dip. Today, we have the automatic bubble makers and the hand generated fans that blow the bubbles without using our breath.
Can you believe this?
Sterling Johnson’s bubble mixture:
• 1 liter of water (Preferably distilled, demineralized or rain water)
• 8 deciliters of Bubbles (which is a pre-made bubble mixture you will find in most toy stores in Denmark and other European countries. If you cannot find Bubbles in your local toy store, you will probably find an equally good brand. We have used different brands with success)
• 1 deciliter of detergent (If you live in Denmark, then use Fairy Ultra.)
• 1 deciliter of glycerin
This recipe was given to us by Sterling Johnson, the master-of-hand-tricks bubble artist. We are using Sterling mixture for almost all our soap bubble tricks and experiments.
Experimentarium’s bubble mixture:
• 1 deciliter of detergent (If you live in Denmark, then use Fairy Ultra. In Sweden you can use Yes)
• 2 tablespoons of glycerin
• Fill in water until you have a total mixture volume of two liters
This mixture has been used for many years in the science centre in Copenhagen, Experimentarium. It is an OK mixture, and it is cheap.
