Glow in the Dark Bubbles-Pinterest Fail

 Glow in the Dark Bubbles-Pinterest Fail
Creating your own Glow in the Dark Bubbles, Pinterest Fail (sad to say).  Do not be fooled!  You can NOT create your own glow in the dark bubbles with a bottle of bubble solution and glow sticks.  This is a total Pinterest fail.  Since I have tried this, I have researched how to do it correctly and the results are all the same, IT DOESN’T WORK!  I don’t know what magical solution the original blogger used (you can see the link I found this at if you click the picture above) but in my opinion his pin is totally misleading, it gets a BIG thumbs down.  In a nut shell the link instructs you to break open some glow sticks, dump them into a bottle of bubbles and you have glow-in-the-dark bubbles.  Viola (not).  Don’t waist your time, bubbles, and glow sticks.  All that happened is that we ruined all of our night time fun supplies.  I believe the main problem is that there is a pretty specific formula for making a great bubble solution and when you add an additional ingredient it waters down the bubbles so you can’t make any.  I will say, it did create a glow in the dark solution, but all it was good for was smearing all over the kids using them.  I guess they thought that was fun, but I wasn’t so impressed.  Also, the link on this pin has a NEGATIVE critique for a glow in the dark Miracle Bubbles product.  Also, a fail.  Wish it wasn’t true, but I think the only way you will get glow in the dark bubbles is to either catch a fairy or summon the dark lord himself (seems like something Voldemort would be into).  Big thumbs down.
