Make your own bubble solution, cheap, quick and easy and suitable for all ages.


  • 1/2 cup Tear free baby shampoo
  • 1 cup Water
  • 1 tbl Sugar


  1. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl, measuring jug or bottle. We use recycled water bottles as the mixture can also be stored in there.
  2. Have fun blowing bubbles! You can also use dish washing detergent if you don't need your bubbles to be tear free- the tear free is good for babies or young children should a bubble land on them.

  • nothing worse than sore eyes from other brands of bubbles when trying to have fun


  • Hey that’s a great tip to know in stead of always buying store bought solution


  • My grandson has so much fun with blowing bubbles, but it can get expensive replacing the bubble mix when it gets split, which is often. Great to have a cheaper, home made version


  • What a great idea using the No more tears! I was blowing bubbles the other day with my son and had the problem of some popping in his face and stingy his eyes. Now I have a solution ????


  • A good idea for the little ones!


  • Thanks for sharing. I’ve been looking for a good mix.


  • Nice! What a great idea! Thanks for sharing this!


  • So simple and so very clever


  • a wonderful idea using tear free shampoo, kinder to eyes


  • WOw love this! It’s such a simple idea!


  • Thanks again; had some Christmas time bubble fun!


  • Thanks for sharing this clever idea.


  • yeah my kids love making bubbles


  • Good idea, since kids inevitably spill some mixture and then end up rubbing their eyes! Does it work as well at making good bubbles as the dishwashing liquid version?


  • What a clever idea. Thanks
