I already know that soap and other surfactants weaken surface tenions and 
also that alcohol strengthens it, but what about solutions of sugar water 
and salt water? Do they have stronger/weaker surface tensions and why? And 
if you could, do you know of any place where I could possibly find the 
surface tensions of any of my solutions (water and soap, alcohol and 
water, sugar water and saltwater) or maybe how to find them out myself?
