    Method No 1

    Children often try to make a solution for soap bubbles themselves after mixing shampoo and soap in water. This trick does not always satisfy them because the bubbles made from the fluid burst quickly. The easiest way is to take 200 grams of detergent, add 600 ml of cold water and 100 grams of glycerol to it. It is due to the content of glycerol in the solution that the soap bubbles become robust, and tend to live far more than a normal solution.

The resulting mixture should be shaken thoroughly and leave to infuse for two - three days. As time passes, strain the liquid and put it in the refrigerator for 12 hours. Your solution to blow soap bubbles is ready to use.
