Question: Homemade Bubbles

By brenda 2 1

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!
