I tried your bubble bath recipe and the bubbles went away as quick as they came. Why is that?

Not sure.
This bubble bath won’t last as long as store bought bubble baths. That’s because there isn’t a surfactant to reduce the surface tension between the water and the soap (which makes big bubbles that last a long time).
But the bubbles shouldn’t immediately disappear.
My guess is that maybe you were also using soap and that caused the bubbles to dissipate much faster than normal.
