Bubble science

There is a science to the process of making a good bubble solution. Water by itself has a high surface tens ion and water bubbles are small and burst easily.

By adding different elements to the water it will affect the thickness float-ability and strength of soap bubbles. Sugar helps the bubbles evaporate more slowly, making longer-lasting bubbles. Ingredients like glycerin affect strength and weight. Bubbles are the perfect mix of play and science!
