Making Bubble Bars

I haven’t posted anything crafty in awhile. This post is from my online store’s blog.

Please visit our website at http://www.lololicosmetics.com shop for soaps and other good stuff.

I admit it. I was bored. So I decided to make some bubble bars. They are really easy and fun to make.

The following is a simple basic bubble bar recipe, that once mastered, can be altered by additional ingredients to create a custom bubble bar.

What you will need to get started:

Dry Ingredients

1 Cup SLSA (Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate)

1 Cup Baking Soda

1/3 Cup Cream of Tartar

1/3 Cup Cornstarch

1 Tablespoon Tapioca Starch

Directions

Combine the SLSA, Baking Soda, Cream of Tartar, and Cornstarch in a large bowl by hand or with a wisk (it is not recommended to use an electric mixer because that can send the powder into the air). You may want to wear a mask because these ingredients are powdery and may irritate sensitive people.

Next, mix the fragrance with the Tapioca Starch and add to the other ingredients.
