Default Cookie Cutter Solid Bubble Bath (Easy & Great for Kids)

This makes a small batch. For more solid bubble bars, double the recipe.

You will need:
1/2 cup Baking Soda
1/2 cup Corn Starch
Optional: 2 tbs. Cream of Tartar
2 oz. of liquid Bubble Bath (any brand will do)
Optional: Color - Food color or an old eye shadow (crushed up fine)
Cookie Cutters
Wax Paper lined Cookie Sheet (dust wax paper with corn starch)

In a large bowl, mix baking soda, cream of tartar and corn starch together with a wire wisk. Slowly add liquid bubble bath (and optional colorant) while constantly stirring dry ingredients with a wire wisk. Now get your hands in there and knead the mixture until it takes on the consistency of dough (may take awhile - keep kneading). The mixture will be sticky at first but will begin to take on the correct dough like consistency the more it is mixed with your hands.

Once dough like consistency is achieved, take the dough ball and place on corn starch dusted wax paper. Pat down the dough ball about 1/2 inch thickness and use the cookie cutters to cut out shapes and make your bubble bars. Use you hands to form left over dough into shapes or roll in balls. Let the bubble bars dry for 24 hours before use. After dried and hard, place bubble bars in a zip lock bag for storage.

To use, crumble 1/2 to 1 full bubble bar (depending on size) under the force of running bath water and ENJOY YOUR BUBBLES!

NOTE: I have revised this some so it can be made by people that do not have Cream of Tartar. If you have it, use it. If you can buy it cheap great but it's kinda expensive at the grocery store.

Thanks for posting and sharing this idea. This might be a fun project with my youngest niece. She loves bath fizzies - she's my tester. I think she'd really love to make her own bubble bath with cookie cutters.

I hope you try it and enjoy it. Post some pictures if you try it some day.

Cream of tartar is also very expensive.

Is it really necessary to use? I do have it because I needed some a couple of months ago. Of course, I about choked when I saw the price.

I do think it helps to make the inside of the bar crumbly. I haven't tried this but you could try to use corn starch instead but I think you would get a much harder bar inside and not sure if would be as easy to crumble under the water. I am sure it would still work though.

I find that making bath and body products is very similar to cooking/baking. I just keep trying and tweaking recipes until I find the one that I think works the best. I love to cook so forming new recipes is fun for me.

Thanks for replying. I'll try it with cream of tartar because I don't want it to be hard for my niece to crumble.

Look in the area where they have the 99 cent spices for the cream of tartar. I think that's where I found mine the last time at Walmart I think? They're in the small red and white containers. I bake alot so I always have cream of tartar. lol
