How to Make Non-Slip Bubble Fluid: Balancing Safety and Fun

Ever wondered if there’s a way to enhance the fun of bubbles even more? Hold on to your bubble wands, because we're going to share a game-changing secret: the recipe for non-slip bubble fluid!

Now, before we dive into it, let's talk a little about what gives bubbles their magic in the first place: soap or detergent. But sometimes, this can make the bubble solution a tad slippery. Does that mean we should just reduce the soap? Well, not quite. That might give us less bubbles, and we certainly don’t want that.

So, what's the big secret? It's all about the how-to. Down below, we're going to list a unique approach to making your bubble fluid that focuses on balancing fun with safety, without reducing those precious bubbles.

With this secret, your bubble sessions will be as joyful as ever, with an added bonus of less slipperiness. Get ready, because we're about to take your bubble game to a whole new level! Stay tuned for the instructions down below. Let the bubble magic begin!

A Balancing Act

Nevertheless, if you're open to experimentation, you might attempt reducing the amount of soap in your homemade bubble solution. The aim is to get a balance where bubbles are still possible and the solution is less slippery. (Our bubble machine when used generally isnt that slippery but when using 5 or more for an exended period of time it could get a little slippery on some surfaces if not using the below formula)


  • 1 cup of water
  • 2 tablespoons of glycerin
  • Dish soap (start with 2 tablespoons and add as needed, up to 1/4 cup)


  1. Start by combining 1 cup of water with 2 tablespoons of glycerin in a bowl. The glycerin in the mixture helps to strengthen the bubbles.

  2. Slowly add dish soap to the mixture while stirring gently. Start with 2 tablespoons of soap and gradually add more as needed.

  3. Once thoroughly mixed, test the solution. Dip a bubble wand into the mixture and gently blow. If the bubbles pop too quickly or struggle to form, add a little more glycerin.

  4. Then, test the slipperiness of your solution. If it's too slippery, consider reducing the soap content. Remember, this may make it more difficult to form bubbles, so it's just abour experimenting with give-and-take.

Prioritizing Safety

 Other ways to create a safer bubble-blowing environment:

  • Prompt clean-up: Regularly wipe or mop the area where the bubbles are being used to prevent build-up of the bubble solution.

  • Use non-slip mats: Placing non-slip mats where you're planning to use the bubbles can help prevent slipping accidents.

  • Outdoor play: If possible, use bubble solutions outdoors on grassy or sandy areas where the risk of slipping is reduced.
