At 2,000 Pounds, The World's Biggest Bath Bomb Takes Self Care To An Entirely New Level

Thanks to Vat19 — the website dedicated to creating "curiously awesome gifts and videos" — we now know what the world's biggest bath bomb would look like when thrown into water. You know, in case you ever wondered.

Filling up pools with mysterious items isn't anything new for the Vat19 crew. Recently, they made a pool-sized bowl of marshmallow cereal because why not? This time, they decided to create a 2,000-pound bath bomb and drop it in the water to see what happens.

Using a massive fiberglass mold, they constructed the bath bomb using over 30 50-pound bags of materials — corn starch, citric acid, baking soda, and black dye. Why they chose a black bomb we aren't exactly sure. But, since bath bombs are the quintessential self-care item, people (including us) were obviously intrigued.

They carefully removed the mega-bomb from the mold and rolled it into the pool. It immediately starts to fizz, spin, and break apart, just as one does in the tub, and it is mega-satisfying.

While the result wasn't exactly a black abyss, it did turn the pool a pretty purple color. And personally, I think that's better.

Would I swim in a purple pool? Yes. Would I do this to my own pool? Not a chance. We are definitely not envious of the amount of clean up this must've taken.

Normal fist-sized bath bombs hardly seem exciting now that we've witnessed a 2,000 pound explosion, but this Black Abyss Bath Bomb is what inspired the entire experiment. It's perfect for pretending you're in a scary movie.
