Man rolled world’s largest bath bomb into a pool and the fizzy reaction went viral
Some creative and enthusiastic people from the YouTube channel Vat19 wondered how big a bath bomb needed to be black out a swimming pool, so they created a 2,000-pound one.
In the viral video that has more than 15 million views so far, they explained the whole process of manufacturing such a massive bath bomb. Using fiberglass, they built the mold wherein the bomb would be created.
Later, they showed all the materials they used – 31 50-pound bags of it. They had one part of corn starch, one of citric acid, and two of baking soda. The last ingredient to make it more striking was a black dye.
CREATING THE BATH BOMB
Using gloves and face masks, they mixed all the materials and put it little by little into one half of the mold, using large and solid wooden sticks to paste it as firmly as possible in it. The repeated the cycle of mixing and hitting several times until they got the first half done.
FINISHING THEIR CREATION
Later, they covered it with the other half and started filling it from a hole on the top. After a lot of work and a couple of issues with the tools, they finally completed the massive bath bomb. Read more on our Twitter account, @amomama_usa.
GETTING READY FOR IT
The following day, they were ready to see it work. They cut the fiber glass and the wooden parts surrounding the massive creation very carefully as they didn’t want it to break.
A man slowly rolled it into the water and, as soon as it touched it, the highly anticipated fizzy reaction was awesome. Little by little, the pool turned into a dark grey color that was exactly what they wanted.
ENJOYING THE DAY IN THE POOL
Even though the spent a whole lot of time to make such a huge bath bomb, they clearly had a good time in the pool. It was not the first time that people created what they believed it was the biggest bath bomb.
It took place in Gas City, Indianapolis. People gathered at Mama Pearson’s Soaporium to witness the creation. The test bomb was a little over 150 pounds, and it detonated in an above-ground pool.
The final product, according to Fox59, came out reportedly at a whooping 198.64 pounds, nothing even close to the 2,000-pound one created by Vat19.
