Recipe for bubble juice: 

 

- 1000 ml water 

 

- 1 gram Guar Gum 

 

- 2 grams baking powder 

 

- 40 ml dishwashing liquid Fairy or Dawn 

 

- (optional) alcohol (isopropyl alcohol or grain alcohol or glycerine or propylene glycol or PEG). This liquid makes it easy to mix the guar gum without clumping. If you mix the guar gum powder first with any one of the liquids in the preceding list and then add then the water, there will be no clumping. Only a little bit is used. 

 

Alternative it is also possible to mix first the guar with the dishwashing liquid and add then the water.
