    Default Forever Blowing Bubbles!?!?!?!?!

    Hi Everyone,

    Ok so i have bought two bubble machines for christmas amongst various other mad things and i am going to make my own liquid to put in them to save me having to import heavy gallons of it from the states, but i need liquid Glycerin. Does anyone know where i could get my hands on some.

    It is used in many beauty Products and is usually available in craft shops, but obviously i am not expecting to find the variety of things i would find in a normal craft shop back in the U.K. However maybe someone here can help.

    Thanks

    P.S if anyone knows where i can rent a Snowflurry machine that would be fantastic!

    Blue Dawn dish detergent and cold water is good. There are dozens of recipes online for soap mix. Some use corn syrup instead of glycerine. Try not to make suds when you mix it. It works without the glycerine, but you can make bigger bubbles with it.

    Try a Farmacia for glycerine.

    If you have no luck getting glycerin, try using a little Karo or Corn Syrup.

    We had dinner in Rancho El Choco, Sosua the other night. Markus and Jaqueline, the owners were putting on a private children's party.

    They had a foam/snow machine. Maybe you could ask them?
