Giant Bubbles


  • 2 pints Water
  • 3 Tbs Dawn detergent
  • ½ tsp Guar powder heaping
  • 3 Tbs Rubbing alcohol
  • ½ tsp Baking powder


  • Mix the guar powder with the alcohol and stir until there are no clumps.
  • Combine the alcohol/guar slurry with the water and mix gently for 10 minutes. Let it sit for a bit so the guar hydrates. Then mix again. The water should thicken slightly, like thin soup or unset gelatin.
  • Add the baking powder and stir.
  • Add the Dawn detergent and stir gently, to avoid causing the mixture to foam.
  • Dip a giant bubble wand with a fibrous string into the mixture until it is fully immersed and slowly pull the string out. Wave the wand slowly or blow on it to create giant soap bubbles.
