Ingredients: Cheap dishwashing detergent. Water. Cornflour (optional; I dunno if it helped or hindered). A bucket. Hands.
To make bubbles, you make an “OK” symbol with one hand, and blow through the “O” into your other hand (cupped to receive the bubble). I so very highly recommend you play along at home. It’s like magic.
I’ll be making more bubbles on Steampunk Earth Day (this Saturday). I heartily recommend you do the same.

Sunday: Diet coke and mentos. . . and the first time awesomeness could have caused serious bodily harm. Officially my favourite video ever. . . and I haven’t put it on youtube yet.

Why was I not invited?
Ann: You were. You were in Brisbane at the time.
Ah…… You didn’t mention bubbles at the time 🙁 I call for a rerun just so I can play too!
Ann: I promise a rerun. This Saturday is Steampunk Earth Day, and I will definitely be playing. We will have others over for dinner, but p’raps in the arvo? Assuming you are still using a horseless cart that day (I’m not).
Why was I not invited?! 😉
Looks like fun. Ah, for springtime again… Over here, it’s getting to that miserable part of the seasons where it’s not snowing yet, but it’s annoyingly cold.
Jolyon: True, I didn’t invite you. . . but you DO live a little farther off than Brisbane.
This is so cool!
I’ve been inspired by this video to do it at school and spread the joy to all the little children! XD 😀 It’s gonna be sooooo cool 😀
Georgia: You just made my day! You and the kids will have a blast, I guarantee it.
Awesome! I made someone’s day! ^^
Kinda sucks that the mixture in a bottle failed :\ We shall try again, though! 😀
Georgia: Your bubbles failed? Oh no!
I tried them again on Saturday, and I found that a mix of about a cup of dishwashing liquid, a strong splash of water, and two tablespoons of cornflour worked well – the cornflour makes them strong enough.
