    EQUAL PARTS water and soap!?

      Not the entire bath. They’re talking about a bubble bath premix solution, which you would then add a capful or two to your regular bath water.

        I just ran this Google, here’s some more info:

        So, that sure looks it’s talking about the actual bath not the solution. So, yes, it is suggesting a 1-to-1 soap to water in-the-bath mix. LLMs say stupid shit?! Since when?

        I can readily admit that it pulled that info from a site about making bubble bath solution, but it doesn’t say that in the AI readout.

      Yeah, it’s correct. “add x to taste” has always been shorthand for “add x to suit your personal tastes”

    “To taste” isn’t meant literally in the phrase. It’s an idiom, and you can use it in another context (e.g. add accessory to outfit to taste) as a clever way of saying “to one’s preferences.”

    Although technically it’s original use in recipes isn’t actually meant that way, and actually means to keep adding and tasting the food as you go until it feels sufficient.

    I also got tripped up on this when I was first learning English so don’t worry too much OP! It’s a fickle language.

    This is too mild. Maybe I should make a reddit account and start posting about how sulfuric acid and bleach makes the best bubble bath.

    I wonder what equal parts would feel like. Would it still be liquid and everything dissolves? Or would it just be some slurry goo?

      My husband always used way too much dish soap, so I water it down 1:1. 50% liquid soap, 50% water looks basically exactly like liquid soap

    I think I’ve been around on the internet too long because I just assume you can trace this concoction back to 4chan and it’ll create some kind of nerve agent

    Sounds like a bath that would go with fava beans and a nice Chianti …
