Ever wonder what bacteria smells like? Well, this bacteria has a lemon-lime fragrance.

Yes, it might seem counterintuitive, but these fluorescence cyanobacteria have been engineered to get you cleaner than any other soap.

This soap consists of absolutely no bacteria but rather an all natural, hypo-allergenic coconut oil base, which has a natural amber color making it resemble a Petri dish even more.

These Petri dish soap bars glow-in-the-dark. So you can get yourself cleaned up even with the lights off.
