Bonnie Said:What is the best bubble recipe without glycerin?
We Answered:Glycerin is a substance used a lot in skin care. It makes bubbles tougher, so they don't burst as quickly. A good alternative is some liquid glue. Add that to the soap solution, it can make very strong bubbles. Just don't swallow it, it won't be healthy.

Glycerin makes soap making less intimidating because glycerin soap recipes don't require lye and fats. The key to making great glycerin soaps is to keep the heat as low as possible. High heating temperatures heat will produce a mushy or beaded appearance. To keep the glycerin from attracting moisture from the air, tightly wrap the glycerin soaps in plastic after making.

Below are several packaging ideas, but donâ€™t let this brief list limit your creativity!
Paper is a popular packaging medium because of the variety of papers available. You can use brown Kraft paper, marbled paper, gift wrap, wallpaper, any kind of paper you want. Your creativity is the limit! You can use your computer to add designs and logos to plain paper or you can paint or draw on the paper for an added personal touch. You can wrap individual bars like a gift and either leave plain or add extra embellishment by tie with ribbons, cording, raffia or lace.
Cellophane and polypropylene are clear plastics that can be used as packaging for odd-shaped soaps and scented soaps. Jute weave washcloths or tulle also make wonderful soap wraps. Fabric can be wrapped around soap like a gift and tied with a ribbon. Different fabrics will provide different effects. Corduroy and velour provide a rich, plush look while silk gives an elegant look. Calico and burlap throw a truly "rustic" look. The fabric you use depends largely on the soap you made.
