And if you missed the Bubbles here is the editor’s secret recipe passed down through the ages;
- 3 Quarts water,
- 1 cup liquid Dawn(tm) dish soap,
- 1 cup cornstarch,
- 2 tablespoons baking powder,
- 2 tablespoons glycerin.
Mix Ingrediants in water 1 hour or so before needed.
Stir when the cornstarch settles to the bottom.
