Bubble stuff

By LoisWickstrom, Special to The Christian Science Monitor / June 9, 1980



You can make your own bubble stuff. All you need is liquid dishwashing soap, water, and a container to hold liquid. In fact, the only part you can't make yourself is the wand.

* First take a 1-cup measuring cup and fill it to the 1-ounce mark with liquid soap.

* Next fill the cup up to the 8-ounce mark with tap water. Stir if the soap needs help mixing with the water.

* Finally, pour the mixture into an unbreakable waterproof container that you can take outside.(Sour cream containers, small ice cream cartons, and soft margarine tubs are all useful.) And make a label reading "bubble stuff" so you won't forget what it is.

The only thing left to do is find a wand left over from your last bottle of store-bought bubble stuff, take everything outside, and start blowing.
