The dish soap is not the important part of this experiment, as long as it has a thick consistency. It is only used to help trap the gas created from the reaction. The yeast and the hydrogen peroxide reacting are what make the gas that gets trapped by the soap. I would recommend making sure the yeast is active, and the hydrogen peroxide is the correct concentration.
