Super Soap Bubbles

Recorded July 18, 2011 as a compilation from multiple online recipes, revised August, 2014. Laura and DrDaddy had "the girls" again this weekend. We all enjoyed blowing bubbles. Big ones are the funner. These are not edible, of course.

Small batch:
1 fl oz (30 g) liquid soap (Dawn® dish-washing liquid works well)
3/4 fl oz (30 g) light corn syrup
16 oz water
Large batch
4 fl oz (125 g) liquid soap
3 fl oz (125 g) light corn syrup
1/2 gal (0.5 L) water   
Place water in a suitable container. Stir in the corn syrup, and then gently stir in the dish soap. Avoid foaming. Use of a digital scale makes measuring the amounts easier. Transfer to a rimmed dinner or pie plate. Dip a commercial bubble wand or fashion your own from coat hanger or similar wire.
