An agent that slows down the evaporation of water, glycerine not only extends the life of your bubble solution, but also makes the resulting bubbles bigger and stronger. Glycerine is available at chemists, supermarkets and online. You don't need to add glycerine to your bubble solution on days when the humidity is 50 per cent or higher, since high humidity alone will make your bubbles last longer. Glycerine works with both homemade bubble solutions and commercial solutions.
