Default Smoke Bubble Mix

Hey y'all,

What is the best mix you've found for making smoke bubbles? My friends and I usually use handsoap and water, but we are looking for a mix that lets you pass the smoke bubble around. I've seen Youtube videos where a guy can actually juggle a smoke bubble with his feet, and I want to replicate that. Any thoughts?

I'm guessing just a lot of dish soap and not too much water + don't make it frothy.

It looks like it is less sticky than that stuff, though - if I remember, that stuff was almost like glue in how slowly and thickly it blew up. And it never really popped - I think?

That was a great vid. Maybe part of his ability to bounce the bubbles on his arms, legs, and feet was partly due to the fact that he kept the bubbles small? As a soap bubble gets larger the walls of the bubble get thinner as it is stretched and so becomes more fragile. Smaller, thicker walled bubbles would lend themselves more to manipulation than a larger, thinner walled bubble. Just a theory. Smoke happy.

Keeping them small is definitely part of it, but I still have never seen such a thick-shelled bubble. Even when we make them that small, we can only pass them around the circle by coating our hands in soapy mix as well. What he does is insane.

Thick shelled bubble would be crazy. Overall that stuff can be messy, I try not to mess around with it too much.

if you look at home-made bubble recipes online. its basicaly dish soap, water and glycerin. the glycerin helps keep the bubbles from popping as easily.

im lazy and buy the big ass wonder bubbles. its like a gallon for 6 bucks. and add dish soap to it. works like a charm.

I've never known there was glycerine in bubble mix...
The same stuff that produces our lush clouds creates strong bubbles?

I haven't tried it, but what might work is dish soap and instead of water use some bubble mix from normal bubbles.

Yes that video is pretty sweet.
