Bathing Bad breaks online sales records during Breaking Bad series finale

Online sales averaged one bag every 7.5 seconds
ALBUQUERQUE, NM, September 30, 2013 – Sales of the Heisenberg inspired blue sky colored Bathing Bad Bath Salt, “cooked” in Albuquerque by owners Keith & André West-Harrison, shattered previous sale records. One product every 7.5 seconds of the 75-minute series finale was sold between BathingBad.com and Amazon.com.

“We love the show and we are excited to see it has fans all over the world,” said co-owner Keith West-Harrison, “Orders came in from 14 countries and 32 states while the last episode aired.”

The spa product is for relaxation only, but it is based on the show’s fictional blue meth made by the Albuquerque high school teacher Walter White in the hit AMC TV show “Breaking Bad.” FAB.com describes Bathing Bad as:

Face it, your money isn’t the only thing that’s dirty. You need a good washing, yo. Skip the carwash and hit the tub with these bath salts. The clever packaging may suggest a chemical compound, but we assure you Bathing Bad cooks with a proprietary formula of nothing but the good (organic, all-natural) stuff. Even the signature sky blue hue of this premium product is derived from red cabbage. Yeah science!

The store owners have been telling friends that after Jesse left Walt he came to their house to make a batch of the sky blue bath salts. “He’d like working for us better, says André “since we wouldn’t chain him up.”

“Last year we bought an old 9,000-square-foot home and we decided we needed to ‘break bad’ to pay for the renovations. We asked ourselves ‘What Would Walter White Do?’” said creator Keith West-Harrison, “We thought selling bath salts was better than meth. I’m not a chemist and we’d prefer no jail time.”
