Welcome to the Soap Bubble Wiki[]

Soap Bubble Wiki is devoted to all aspects of creating soap bubbles whether it is blowing bubbles with a dime-store wand or creating whale-sized bubbles with a "tri-string" wand. This wiki is intended as a place for beginners and experts. Beginners can find recipes and instructions for making the equipment required to make the bubbles you see here, and experts can both find out the latest bubble knowledge and share their knowledge.

We hope that the wiki will be a sort of Open Source project for creating the perfect bubble. The goal is to create a fact-based resource for bubblers. If you search the web, you will find contradictory information about recipes and ingredients. This wiki is intended to help separate fact from folklore.

In the news! Physicists at Emory University have been drawing inspiration (and knowledge) from our research and publishing some interesting papers .
