'''NOTE:''' Do not worry about the white sediment that appears at the bottom of your container. It is totally normal in any mix that includes baking powder. Baking powder has a lot of corn starch in it. Corn starch is insoluble in room temperature water. The corn starch in baking powder (at least in the 3 brands that I have tried) is not even soluble in warm and hot water unlike "normal" corn starch. The sediment does no harm, and there is no benefit in trying to get it to incorporate into the mix.

An anonymous user posted this comment: "(June 2015) Dawn Ultra (2X on label) is easiest to find in most U.S. Supermarkets and I found that mixing the J-Lube and baking powder with the Dawn first (I used a cleaned emptied Gatorade plastic bottle) was an easy way of dissolving the powders It is a real gooey mix but then I added to the water at 18:1 ratio and got nice bubbles and mix was good for 1 week plus Still trying to get longer lasting than 5-10 seconds".

Edward Spiegel replies to the anonymous commenter: "I would recommend seeing if you can track down Dawn Pro, you may see an improvement in the performance. What size are the bubbles you are making and what are the temperature and humidity? If these are giant bubbles in dry weather 5-10 seconds would be great. If these are giant bubbles in decent conditions, the results are not what one would expect."
