    I've heard there's a homemade recipe for the liquid used for kid's blowing bubbles. Anyone have it? I've heard it's dish washing liquid and water, but what would the measurements be? Thanks.
    Also, has anyone ever purchased an electric bubble machine? I saw one in New Orleans on a upper balcony last year. It was really cool!

    Supplies:

    • 4 Tbsp of unscented dish soap
    • 16 oz water
    • 1 tsp of faerie dust
    • 1 Tbsp glycerin

    Steps:

    1. Right before you go to bed make the bubbles, the faerie will come into your house and make them more magical!
    2. Combine everything into a jar. Stir ever so gently. Keep in a jar with a tight fitting lid. Remember this came from an Irish faerie witch!
    3. Faerie dust is important to use, glitter at the dollar store!
    4. Glycerin is cheap and you can get it at craft stores, make sure you tell them it is for a craft.
