 Troubleshooting 

Why my bubbles are easy to break? 

—Make sure you are completely wet the tabletop and the tabletop is smooth. The adding of glycerin will prevent the bubble from breaking. 

 Question to Ask 

Why the adding glycerin can prevent the bubble from breaking?

 Scientific Description 

Washing soap reduces the surface tension of the water and slows evaporation of the water molecules so bubbles can last longer. When the bubble stays wet it is less likely to break. That is why we wet the tabletop. When the bubble touches the dirt or oil, it will immediately pop. That is why when we touch the bubble, the bubble will break. Our hands are rich in oil and dirt. When you pierce a drinking straw through the bubble, it does not break for the wet drinking straw does no harm to the bubble. When you blow the inner bubble, the volume of the air in the outer bubble is unchanged and compressed by the growing inner bubble so you can see when you blow the inner bubble, the outer bubble is also growing too.
