There has been a lot of talk lately about the potentially harmful chemicals in conventional bubble bath products. As best, most of these products contain sodium laurel sulfates and petroleum by-products. At worst, they also contain known carcinogens like formaldehyde and 1,4-dioxane. Who wants their baby soaking in that? A better bet is to make your own homemade bubble bath. It is so easy to make and use that you will wonder why you ever bought a commercial product.


  • 1 cup green baby shampoo or eco-friendly liquid soap (try California Baby, Earth Mama Angel Baby, or Tom's of Maine)
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 - 1 tsp. glycerin
Combine baby shampoo or eco-friendly liquid soap, water, and glycerin in a reusable plastic bottle. Add a few drops to running water at bath time for a fun, bubbly, nourishing bath.
Make your own eco bubble bath
