Man hasn't showered in 12 years, selling his secret in a bottle

Forget the soap and bath gels! A Massachusetts company says spraying live bacteria on your skin is all you need to keep clean.

Chemical engineer and MIT grad Dave Whitlock says he hasn't showered in 12 years. He believes showering strips the skin of healthy bacteria -- so much so, that he founded a company and came up with Mother Dirt. It's a bottle of live bacteria you spray on your skin twice a day in place of showering.

Whitlock says the spray is odorless and feels like water.

A small bottle is $49 on the company's website.
