What's the best soap to use for a bath tub shoot, for volume and to stick to the body?

this is old school, but I always bought "Mr. Bubble" for my kids. It was thick, rich, and you could stick it, pile it high, sculpt it. I don't even know if it is still available but there has to be a kids bubble soap that does the same. might have to buy several brands and experiment?? best wishes!

Mr. Bubble works great....especially in a whirlpool type tub. You'll need to use more in a tub without whirlpool jets, but use sparingly in a whirlpool...adding more as you go...until you get the desired amount.

Dish liquids such as Palmolive or Dove (mild and safe for sensitive skin) will produce 10 times the bubbles of Mr Bubble and those bubbles will last for hours. We used Palmolive on this shot.
