  • AH HAH!!! they have made colored bubbles!!! sorta... they have these "glow in the dark" bubbles that glow a yellow or purple/blueish color. they are from a novelty shop but I let the kids use them because they apreciate the glow in the dark more than hubby I also put glowsticks in the tub and let my nieces or nephew have a "glow bath". they love to take baths when you add a fun twist. (just a fun suggestion .. not really question related)

  • You'd think with our advanced technology, we could figure out how to make colored bubbles...

  • That sounds fun! I want a glow bath, now...

    As for colored bubbles...I'm sure it's because of the dilution in the water but either way , it's lame. I want some orange bubbles, damn it!

  • OK so I had to google this question because I am a science geek LOL

    "Technically, the bubbles are clear. They diffuse the light, making it look as though the bubbles are white. There is actually very little of the bubble bath material in each bubble, not enough to affect the coloring of the individual bubbles."
