Step 1: Mixture

Take a big pot and add:

- 6 cups of demineralized water

- one spoon of glycerine

- one cup of dish soap

Then heat it a little and let it stay for 24h. You can experiment and for example add one spoon of sugar to the mixture.

Step 2: Bubble Device

To make a giant bubbles You need special device. It can be made from two sticks and a cotton rope (cotton gives the best effects).

Take the rope and cut it in 1:2 ratio (ie. 1m and 0,5m). Then tide the endings like on the picture.

Now use a duct tape or a metal wire to attach the rope to the sticks. I recommend the metal wire, because the duct tape could fall of after contact with the water.

Step 3: The Bubbles.

You are ready to make giant bubbles. Remmber few things:

- always remove the foam from the mixture before making the bubble

- You can make bubbles with no wind by moving the device by own

- To 'cut' the bubble try to connect the top of the sticks gently

That's all. Now go and make some bubbles :)

    please, what do you mean by "heat a little"? low temperature, or a short time of high temperature?
