The addition of polymers to bubble solutions imparts added mechanical strength to the bubble film. The polymer molecules are coiled up; using the bubble wands we trap air in the film and cause it to stretch; the polymers then start of unfold allowing us to stretch the solution beyond the distance that the electrical forces between the solution’s molecules usually allow.
Storing and using your bubble juice
Natural polymers are reputed to be more prone to biological degradation (the breaking up of the long chains into small ones) than synthetic polymers (polymers derived from petroleum oil such as nylon and polyethylene). It is the nature of the long chain molecules which increase the elastic properties of the soap solution. So, it is very important to make sure all of the utensils and containers used to make and store the bubble juice are sterile to prevent contaminants ruining your bubble fun!
Instructions for making 2 L of bubble juice
- Using the 1 ml & 2.5 ml spoons add level spoonfuls of bubble polymer powder to your bucket – a total of 3.5 ml.
- Add 7.5 ml of isopropyl alcohol to the bucket and stir so that the powder is coated with the alcohol – this will prevent lumps forming in your solution.
- Add 125 ml of Fairy Liquid (original or platinum) and stir until the polymer is completely mixed in.
- Top up with 1875 ml of water to the container to make the solution up to 2 L.
- On warm days you may need to add a little more water.
- Add 7.5 ml of the pH adjuster
- Stir until the powder is completely mixed in – remove any foam – you are now set to go!
Your bubble solution improves with age, so if possible, make the evening before you are planning on using it.
If you are planning on using all of the bubble solution up in one session – there is no need to worry about sterilising any of the equipment you are going to use.
If you are not planning on using your bubble juice within 3-4 days of making it up – omit adding the pH adjuster at this stage. Add it on the day you plan to use the bubble juice. It is the high pH value of the detergent that increases the shelf life of this bubble juice mix.
Your bubble solution should be good to use for up to 2 weeks after you have made it provided it is stored in a closed sterile, airtight container.
Do not pour used bubble juice back into this container
‘Used juice’ is subject to contamination, from dirty hands to spores, dust and pollen – it is very difficult for children not to let their bubble wands hit the ground. Each time this happens and the wand is introduced into the bubble mix contaminates are also added.

Safety: It is recommended that all young children should wear safety goggles when playing with bubbles to prevent any soap splashes going into their eyes.
What to do:
Eyes: Rinse eyes with lukewarm water with one of the following methods:
- Pour a gentle stream of water from a jug or clean teapot over the eye from the inside corner by the nose, across the eye, flowing out towards the ear.
- Eye may be irrigated in the shower if this can be accomplished without delay.
- Young children may be wrapped like a mummy in a towel with arms at side and held over sink or tub or laid on counter during flushing.
