Someone Invented Magic And It Is Freaking Us Out

For more stories about ridiculous things, follow us on Facebook.


“I am so sick of my T-shirt getting wet whenever I pour a lot of liquid on it!”

“I wish my iPhone 4 or 5 would not get so damaged every time I carefully place it at the bottom of a jug filled with water!”

“My new white shoes have been stained by the chocolate sauce and mustard I squeezed on them earlier! What gives?!”

“This cardboard box I chose to hold all of the water is just not doing a great job of it! :(”

These are all things you’re used to saying, but you will be saying them no longer! After a two year wait, Rust-Oleum’s NeverWet — an invention of Ross Nanotechnology (great business name, Ross) — has just hit shelves in the States.

It is “a family of super hydrophobic coating that completely repels water and heavy oils,” and you can buy it online here for $20 a can.

Couple questions left unanswered:

A) What does it taste like?

B) What does it feel like?

C) How much cancer will it give me, and how quickly?

D) What happens if you get it on your hands and then you want to wash it off your hands? Will you be NeverWet forever?

5) If you spray the inside walls of a glass tumbler with NeverWet but not the inside base of that tumbler, and then you fill up the tumbler with water or with another liquid of your choice, like mustard, will it form a mustard tower inside the tumbler? Can you take a photo of the mustard tower and send it to us very soon?

    Does it work on car paint?

    • Stephen Jackson

      You COULD, but the finish is pretty much matte…. not sure you’d like it…

  • Jackson

    now spray it on your skin and jump in a pool and tell us what it feels like

    • ihateusernames24

      imagine you end up gliding on the water lol

      • Mike Gallion

        That or you sink to the bottom cause your no longer “in” the water.

        • Kyle Weedstar Lindgren

          lol and fuckn drown when they find your body there gonna be like… hes not even wet…. lol Supeerman !!!!!

  • Davon Kellum

    How does it stand up to mud?

    • Jesse Gravel

      I saw some other videos about this stuff earlier in the year and they were testing it out on other materials wood, concrete, leather work boots and it did great against mud also. It just slid off of washed in seconds with a little bit of water. Awesome product that i fully intend to order and try out on certain things…namely my work boots to start! Lol.

  • Lesli DeVeau

    Is it flammable if you sprayed it on you’re clothes? Safety is always an issue. I can see using it on all out door furniture and equipment…. Many applications….. Cool How about coating my nikon d7100? Could it go under water too?

    • AwkwardB1R

      If I can coat my camera in this stuff.. I’m never leaving the water..

      If you’re clothes, you’ve got other problems…

      • Sean Coyle

        But smell and residue from are two different things, right?

        • ChadHorn

          Not really. When you smell something… you’re actually nasally ingesting microscopic partials of whatever that is. Remember that the next time you smell a stranger’s fart or roadkill. ;)

          • Vickie Gentry

            You are only smelling the volatile compounds of whatever it is you are smelling. Quite a different situation, it is not like you are going to get an STD from smelling someone’s fart.

          • Voyce

            But you are going to get pink eye.

          • Alkalinea Xifax

            Only if it’s bare assed and on your pillow or directly on your face. Trust me.

          • Dana

            The volatile compounds are part of whatever you’re smelling. No one said you’d catch an STD from a fart. They’re gross all by themselves.

        right, because they are ass proof?

        • Philosophicsity

          what if, what if,

          you spray neverwet on your underwears?

          do you think it’ll be fart and shit proof?

          • Azkyroth

            It might be a problem for your sex life…

          • Philosophicsity

            what if you spray neverwet in her pussy, and cum inside ?!

            not only is she always going to be dripping, she’ll never get pregnant!

            BEST INVENTION EVER.

          • Robert Johnson

            Possible problem: NeverWet feels like sandpaper

          • baboi

            What if you spray it in your brain! Cause i think you already did.

    • Jessica Lapidos

      Freeze them! it kills the bacteria.

      • Robert Saggers

        Freezing does not kill bacteria.

        • http://bloqhead.com Daryn St. Pierre

          It just temporarily inconveniences them.

        • cnotv
          • disqus_vwGd6hhxdg

            That does not kill the bacteria…just prevents them from growing. This fact is supported by that same Wikipedia article…

          • cnotv

            ops!

          • Dana

            The USDA tells us that if you freeze meat for a certain amount of time, whatever pathogens it carried will be dead. You can’t just freeze it for a day and expect the germs to be gone.

            Some germs form spores and so they can survive. But I just looked up the major bacterial species that cause food poisoning in humans and none of those are spore-forming. If they freeze for long enough, they have no protection against it.

            FYI, we have some spore-forming bacteria in our normal gut flora, including some lactic acid bacteria, but they don’t hurt us.

          • ajd

            your body makes lactic acid.

          • foryourhealth

            USDA also tells us that we need dairy in our daily diets.. so lets trust them wholeheartedly without implementing the american system of checks and balances -__-

          • Tom

            FYI, please don’t be snotty with other people if you have no idea about the subject yourself.
            fact: both Clostridium and Bacillus spp. are spore forming major food borne pathogens

          • disqus_wOy9cQXxTY

            You just linked a wikipedia article. Credibility is gone.

          • Dana

            If something is incorrect in the Wikipedia article, and you have a source to prove it, go edit the article.

            Sheesh. The dumbasses.

          • 2013asdasdsad

            Welcome to 2013. Not linking to Wikipedia was about 5 years ago.

          • Me

            lol

          • Jason Stern

            Ya use wiki, cause that’s trust worthy. and somethings are better wet then dry!!

          • cnotv

            If you don’t like wiki: http://bit.ly/1tmZQAH

        • Dana

          Yes, it does. Not instantly, but give it a few weeks. Spore-forming bacteria may (note I said “may”) survive but not all bacteria form spores.

      • Guest

        Hmm, maybe test it out? Leave some chicken out for a day then freeze it. You should be fine eating it after that, right?

        • CD

          No it’s not the bacteria that kills you it is the toxins they produce and those toxins will still be there after the bacteria is dead.

        • Dana

          You’re not supposed to leave meat out in room temperature for a day and then freeze it. Then, as CD pointed out, you have the bacterial toxins to contend with.

          Of course, our stomach acid should be sufficient to kill most bacteria that enter our bodies via our food. But with all the junk we eat now, a lot of us have bacterial overgrowth from the small intestine into the stomach, and we’re not supposed to have a lot of germs in the stomach. (A small amount of Heliobacter pylori is OK, as long as it’s not causing an ulcer, which it doesn’t in everybody who has it.) And when you get bacterial overgrowth like that, you make much less acid. Probably why so many people are getting sick from their food now.

      • PSiKoTiC

        Light it on fire.. that kills ‘most’ bacteria..

    • Phil Erskine

      Just spray the outside and wash it inside out.

    • John Bravo

      I purchased this product and I was not very happy. The videos look great but it’s not happening folks. Here is why – firs to fall it cannot take any wear whatsoever and I’m talking normal touching. You can simply rub it away with your finger with ease. Secondly, it says specifically in the instructions to NOT use it on electronics. It is also not resistant to soaps (of any kind) or paint primers. The paint primer I experimented with was water based as well and it did not repel it.

      Save your money and wait until they put more on the market. Price right now is ridiculously expensive and so far the only use I’ve found for it is on my white sneakers. IT’s just not worth the money.

      • Braden

        it’s $20 a can….and they advise you not to use it on electronics so they won’t be liable if you do it wrong…? sorry but this didn’t seem like a fair review.

        • debraparker63

          Yet they show a demo on a phone????? hmmm

          • Braden

            right, because im sure it works… yet there would be no way to prove it if someone used their product incorrectly and ended up breaking their phone…so they advice you not to do it for their legal safety. get it?

          • Evan_Beezy

            You know Samsu g just made a smartphone that is water repellant with this same technology. Im sure its just a liability thing.

          • richard lee

            Sony did as well, and I have it… totally works. Even with a full beer spilled on it.

      • James

        u can find the same product, probably by a different company in taiwan. It only costs US$2 for a bottle.

    • mbaNJ

      eventually it does wear off which is why I posted that key warning to us all….those nanoparticles do not disappear but will accumulate like fiberglass insulation accumulates in your lungs or other spots…..imagine those items getting into your brain or vascular system….they are so tiny they will pass through your skin, for sure…..and in food and in water…and in that toilet brush where you have an opening next to that cleaned surface….so very very sad as anyone using this will have complications for sure….our government should not allow this tiny toxic contaminant into our culture…..

  • William Spinolo

    can i use this on cookware
    will it survive the washing machine
    does it scratch off surfaces?

    Can I spray my dog when its raining so she doesnt get wet… like a duck. Or should I just buy a duck?

            why would you you name a duck ugly the ugly duckling i guess

          • Daniel L. Cox

            Why did your friend name his duck Countryman, since he named it after you?

        So disturbed….

      • Joe

        I always wondered what kind of music the unevolved listened to… and thankfully, it gave me some further insight into their sexual and social behaviors. It’s too bad that they’re all going extinct so quickly… we should set up some kind of reserve for them or something.

        • disqus_pgo4yedL4m

          • Dana

            Which makes you wonder how educated the educated really are. I thought the superior people were supposed to be more reproductively successful.

            (OK, I know that’s not actually true, at least not about people who are superior according to First World human opinion–but that’s what a lot of people assume.)

          No such thing as an unevolved person. If you’re alive, you’re evolved. Though you may be best adapted for a bit different set of circumstances than those in which your average arrogant hipster typically thrives.

  • Ernie P.

    What are the environmental effects? Does the coating break down in nature? How long does that take? What effects does it have on animals who consume it? What effect does it have on soil where it is spilled or dumped? And what effect on the plants living in that soil? And what effect on the people who eat the fruit of those plants?

    • Candy Sebring

      sounds like you need to do some research there Ernie.

      • Ernie P.

        Don’t have the time. You do it!

        • Michael Allen

          Typical. You have the questions but don’t care enough to learn.

          • Ernie P.

            Haha, don’t I care enough to learn? Where’d that come from? I asked a question hoping someone had the answer. Guess what, they did! Gavin there posted a link to an info sheet (thanks Gavin). And on that sheet it says:

            ‘This product has been reviewed according to the EPA ‘Hazard Categories’ promulgated under Sections 311 and 312 of the
            Superfund Amendment and Reauthorization Act of 1986 (SARA Title III) and is considered, under applicable definitions, to meet the following categories: Fire Hazard, Pressure Hazard, Acute Health Hazard, Chronic Health Hazard.’

            Actually, most of what says on the sheet seems to pertain to the products’ properties when it is still in liquid form, or when it is being sprayed. I’m more interested in what happens after that. But still, it says somewhere on that sheet that it should not be spilled into soil and it should be disposed of according to some regulations.

            The reason for me asking because this product seems to be such a marvelous thing that it will no doubt become very popular and be used by the truckloads every day in the very close future.

          • Michael Allen

            Think of all the research you could have just done.

          • Ernie P.

            So all material safety data sheets are weird and not to be trusted, because the one on water is weird and funny? Were going off track pretty fast here.

          • anne ang

            Aye. Chill… all I’m saying is that someone had to fill according to protocol and take things with a dash of common sense. Like deodorant could be a ‘fire hazard’ and a ‘pressure hazard’ simply because it is in an aerosol can. Simple as that.

          • The_L1985

            People still use spray deodorants? I don’t think I’ve even seen that kind, myself.

            LOLz. ” Do not induce vomiting. Get medical attention immediately if symptoms occur.”

          • Kat

            That isn’t just for water it’s for deionized water, which sometimes can still have traces of what they used to deionize it with, which could be harmful if it comes in contact with you. Deionized water isn’tnecessarily completely pure water.

      • http://bartsz.com/ Bart

        I went to their website and they don’t mention any of this stuff. After what happened with asbestos, lead, PVC and other chemicals being introduced into people’s homes, you would think a company introducing something new like this would have the foresight to make that a topic of conversation. They don’t even talk about this thing being used on eating utensils and you know someone will try it.

        • Gavin T. Booth

          If you go to the Home Depot page where it is sold they have the MSDS page you can read http://www.homedepot.com/p/Rust-Oleum-Stops-Rust-18-oz-NeverWet-Multi-Purpose-Spray-Kit-274232/204216476#.UeiE54fnbAN

          • Kristen

            Thanks for that info. One of the main hazardous ingredients it lists is Methyl Isobutyl Ketone. I looked it up on the Environmental Working Groups page here – http://www.ewg.org/skindeep/ingredient/720717/MIBK/#jumptohere

            Some of the other things that jumped out at me from the report – if ingested, do not induce vomiting as it could get into your lungs and cause great damage. Can you imagine your lungs not being able to get wet? You would suffocate from the inside.

            This looks like a cool product, but I agree, the proper warnings need to be used. For instance, use a gas mask.

          • Justin St. Germain

            but what if i want my lungs to never get wet?

          • mbaNJ

            this is a death trap and will cause strokes also….read my danger warning as this is a serious contaminant into our environment that goes through our skins because they are small enough to do that….and then our system of nerves and brain cells will be blocked in a bad bad way…..not worth the risk for this “miracle” additive….

          • mbaNJ

            never trust an msds which the company selling the product creates….

        • Daniel Carrier

          Do you have any idea how many chemicals people have made that are completely harmless? Technically, two of the ones you listed are naturally occurring, but those are almost all harmless too.

          • Kristen

            Sure, but not really relevant to this topic. Read the MSDS report.

    • http://bartsz.com/ Bart

      I was about to post the same thing. Also wondering if there’s any off-gas like with PVC that could make it dangerous to breath? And what happens when something is sitting out in the sun with this stuff sprayed on it and getting heated up.

    • Joris Van Der Wegen

      My thoughts exactly… stuff like this is amazing.. but the world is poluted enough as it is… with perhaps no chance to ever become clean again .. any Nano technology is a potential threat to a biological system !

    • Jolly

      It appears to be a two part solution, so perhaps spills are not water resistant unless both chemicals mix in the spill, and since they are stored in separate bottles, base and top coat, that would dramatically reduce the probability of such spills. In that case it would function a lot like an epoxy. As far as environmental affectation, I’m sure that there is a label on the bottle that covers that. Billy Mays never mentioned the environmental impact of Oxyclean or Orange-glo in his infomercials.

    We need some one to test all this shit! Like actually test it and post the results, scientifically, and videos/pictures of the results.Not some stupid crap they pulled off the internet either. I would, but I don’t have the degree or the money to do any of that. though, I could potentially test what happens if you leave it on something and it sits in the sun for a while, but on the molecular I can’t really help. TEACHERS! here would be an amazing science project, do multiple experiments with it, let it sit in the sun, ect. and then take pieces of the test subjects, (t-shirt, cameras…) and control, and look at them under a microscope..If any teachers read this, I think that would be something cool to do with your class, especially a Chemistry class.

    I bought two boxes of this stuff and must say, it’s garbage. There is little, to no durability. I sprayed my kayak paddle pants and within two hours it was all worn off. I sprayed the inside of my cooler and as soon as I put ice in, it was all scraped away. It says directly on the box “DO NOT SPRAY ELECTRONICS” also, everything you spray turns blueish/white hazeyness. I sprayed my pato furniture and now it looks terrible. Thankfully, the stuff rubs off really really easy. It’s more of a protective film then a permanent paint. There is no doubt the repelling qualities are phenomenal. It made an index card impermeable to water, but the practicality of the stuff is still left to be seen.

    what happens when it gets into the environment? when people discard their half-used bottles.. is it biodegradable? i dont think we need any more stuff in this day and age… we’ve already ruined the planet. we’ve survived quite well without this product in the past. people really need to start questioning the products they buy and what impact they have on the environment in terms of the materials being used, the company you are supporting and what their principles are, the after waste.. i.e you think once you throw something into the garbage that’s the end of it? Think again. And dont buy plastic… unless you dont mind contributing to the toxic aftermath of polluted oceans and sick and dying animals and marine life from the consumption of plastic particles which goes back into our food chain to be consumed by us. complete madness.

    • bintalshamsa

      I’d love for someone to show us all how we’re supposed to avoid buying any plastic? Even if I could go and do all of my grocery shopping at the farmer’s market, I’d still wind up having to buy plastics. My medication containers are all plastic. My keyboard is plastic. My monitor is plastic. My shoes contain plastic. Instead of silly arguments that those who buy plastic don’t care about life and the planet, why not give information about how to start buying fewer plastic items?

      • Dakota Calhoon

        there are a LOT of things we buy that we dont really need. it’s about thinking twice when you buy things in plastic containers. You should always remember what you buy will end up back in the environment. All those fiddly little plastic things like lids and caps, etc.. will probably end up in the stomach of some poor seabird. We have been SOLD by corporations that we must use their products. We’ve been ‘programmed’. In fact you don’t even need half the stuff they are selling. You need to make conscious lifestyle changes… and that will mean re-adjusting your ‘unsustainable’ comfort zone. For starters. get yourself a nice wicker basket to take to the market. Stop buying plastic water bottles and recycle a few wine bottles. The screwcaps work best. i’m sure there is a water company selling purified water close to you. Get a couple of 6 gallon glass bottles to store it in. You’ll never need to buy that disgusting plastic water again… and remember don’t ever buy anything from Nestle Corporation, as the CEO of that company is a complete sociopath – thinks he has the right to own the world’s water supply… Hope that helps a little!

  • br4d137

    I’ve done some research on this. So basically this stuff makes like a hydrophobic film (milky white film I might add) to whatever u spray it on, as long as its water nothing can touch it. Im not sure where the author quoted “a family of super hydrophobic coating that completely repels water and heavy oils,” but any oils will strip this shit right off. I’ve seen someone try this with ranch… yeah that didnt work, the fat melted the film away. Excessive touching with your greasy fingers? yeah doesn’t work either, rubs right off. Even if you run it under some hot higher pressure water, strips the film completely. So pretty much this stuff has the life expectancy of a very hydrophobic nail polish. Oh and dont put this on your skin either, it’ll give u cancer.

    Spraying my keyboard

    Bath mat

    Spraying a matteress to protect it from… stuff.

    Spraying the car speakers and door mounted to controls to protect from rain if the door gets left open.

    Spraying my favorite coat to make it a rain coat

    I wont take my phone apart and coat the pins with this stuff, but I’ll spray the case I keep it in to at least protect from spills when it’s sitting on the table.

    If I can find any info on how safe it is near food, and it’s flamability when dry, I’d love to spray my stove top (around, but not ON the burners) and the counter tops! Not to mention the inside of the fridge!

    The bathroom sink! No more dried tooth paste or make up!

    hmmm…. how well does it work under water, if applied while the item is dry. Maybe get the water out of the toilet, spray the bowl. One day of dealing with gross, and no more sticking!

    How safe is it with pets? I’d love to spray the litter box!

    If I spray a photograph, will it damage it, or protect it from flood damage?

    Spraying antennas to keep water off and thus prevent icing up!

    REMOTE CONTROLS!!

    Spraying the inside of my makeup case

    Spraying the front door mat to prevent icing. I saw it work on a brick, maybe it can keep ice off the front steps!

    that guy’s shirt and pants now are immune to spilled drinks and bbq

    which is also waterproof? Since his clothes are now hydrophobic, they
    don’t absorb his sweat which is now running down his body in rivers,
    down his legs, over his shoes (or possibly into), and onto the ground.

    Please try it on the bottom of a boat it it reduces drag would be fantastic and surfers would spray the underside of their boards i can think of many applications for this such as the waterproofing of tarpaulins ect

  • Tim Bucuk

    I was wondering how this would work for car windshields vs. rain or cars in general vs everyday dirt.

  • johnanthonyca

    I read on http://superhuman.ly that NeverWet can be applied to electronic parts to make them completely waterproof. But I also read from John Bravo’s comment below that it’s not supposed to be used on electronics. Now I’m confused.

    Guys… Moses invented this product and that was thousands of years ago. This product is by no means revolutionary.

  • Jacob Nicosia

    It would not form a mustard tower, due to the laws of science. The mustard wouild simply fill the container, then be easily removed by turning the container upside down. Of course, you’d have to wash the untreated portion.

  • kcmoblue

    I vote that this be used like fluoride and pump it out to the public. Just start coating children in it – new immunization.

  • Alicia Eschwege Guillette

    What about levels of toxicity? Or decomposition when someone sends coated corrugated to the landfill or recycle center?

  • Andy Antonio

    I have a question. If I spray my phone as mentioned in the video. Will the coating disrupt the metal contacts when I go to charge it? or perhaps the headphone jack?

  • Chris Parks

    Cancer anyone!? It comes in “spray” form, that you can wear… (not just to clean your toilet and tub…)

  • ArgleBargle

    Do I really need a toilet brush I can’t rinse off? What happens if I coat my tongue with it? What about the inside of a drinking glass? If I sprayed it on a fish, would it sink to the bottom of the lake? If I then dumped a ton of it in the lake, would the water flow out and flood the surrounding area? If I sprayed it on a water slide, would the people using it afterwards be skinned alive? This seems like a fun product to play around with.

  • JEFF CHANDLER

    THAT IS ALIEN TECHNOLOGY UNREAL VERY COOL STUFF…

      we have had giant or unknown species should i say in the world before us building thing and monument far big that our wildest dreams. and yet we class there technology as primitive but it clear that there tech is just as advance as us just in a different way. if we set our mind to the impossible then the impossible becomes the possible

    Does it change the color of what it’s sprayed on??? Very curious!

    Is it constantly repelling itself inside the can? I don’t… know how to handle this.

  • Unclebob Hicks

    wow I cant believe I watched this…another chemical and more ozone depleting spray cans

  • DoctorGraph

    I was wondering…
    1) If it is 100% waterproof; do the fabrics still breath? Like… if it doesn’t you’ll get a lot of side-effects like, stinking shoes/feet, perhaps even infections due to this?

    2) Also… From the moment I start skating/walking with the neverwet, the protectionlayer will come of quite quickly won’t it? I would love to see a durability test! :)

      Because the screen was not treated, probably because it would make it

    • NiceJoeGreen

      The CEO’s t-shirt looked like it was made of oil cloth–it had a glare on it that made the “plastic” coating look pretty obvious, and the shirt appeared to be pretty stiff.
      Definitely a good idea for the beer, though.
      I wonder if my sailboat would sail faster if I coat the hull with this stuff? I imagine so.

  • Lucas Hipólito

    i dont know what is ridiculous in this.
    it is a very genious idea

  • Juliet Jeske

    I get spraying your shoes with it, but it makes no sense to spray your clothing with it, because you couldn’t WASH your clothes and you are still going to have to wash your clothes, unless you sprayed both sides with NeverWet, and if you did that, then what happens to natural body oils and sweat…I don’t want to know. So shoes, I get, a shirt I don’t.

  • MadVirus

    I am also quite concerned about this stuff getting into the air, and into the soil. What effect does it have on the ecosystem? What happens when you breathe this in?

  • Shelby Goelz Excelsior

    What does it do to the fabrics that it is sprayed on? Can I use it on a $200 suede purse or pair of Uggs (or other boot/shoe) and not ruin them? Most ‘Suede Treatment/Protectants’ alter the feeling of the fabric.

    • NotCrazy

      If you’re looking for something to spray on a pair of UGGs might I suggest gasoline and a match.

      • Joemama

        Baaaaahahaahaahahahhaaha

      • Shelby Goelz Excelsior

        Laugh all you want, but I still havent found anything that keeps my feet as warm as these suckers in Chicago winters. However, street salting quickly ruins suede.

        • NotCrazy

          If you truly are wearing these in a cold Chicago winter I’ll give you a pass.

          Just so long as you aren’t rocking the dirty, busted up UGGs with sweatpants as regular shoes on a day to day basis.

          For image, see “USA college girl with sweatpants, writing on the bum and UGGs.” Completely unacceptable.

  • WatchfulMom

    Not be used on electronics or clothing and ingredients cause cancer so likely shouldn’t use on cooking items either, which is most of what they show. Like the product but don’t like a video that shows it being used on all kinds of things it should be used on.

    • nanahayhay

      Nah, Apple would never do that – they like to say “oh, you must have gotten it wet” when ysend your iPhone or iPod in for repairs. They want the item to get ruined if it gets wet so they can sell more.

    they don’t mention it leaves a haze and isn’t very durable(it chips off). I wouldn’t coat my phone with it.

  • http://homespun-threads.com/ Aimee Larsen

    What would happen if you ingested or inhaled the fumes? What does that do to our lungs and body?

  • Arne Mulder

    I know this spray, it’s not magic but based on nature. It’s already years and years old and it was first available for window protection on skyscrapers. Apparently it went into the consumer market. It was by that time called lotus spray based on how the lotus plant has this tiny textured wax layer on which fluids cannot attach similar as stepping on a hot plate, you want to get of from it.

    How do you wash it off your hands?

  • ricardo

    How flammable?

  • bleepinSmarty

    how do u get stop the effects of this product and if u put it on your clothes how will you wash them? they wont smell nice forever..

  • Judith D. Wilcox

    I wonder if this stuff would work to insulate a floor from having water come up through a cement foundation?

  • Brian Harrison Rawlins

    everything that stops functioning when it gets wet… should come pre-sprayed with this stuff

    MY TSHIRT DOESN’T GET WET BUT I JUST GREW A THIRD ARM FROM MY FOREHEAD – AND ALL FOR $20 BUCKS! YAY!

  • Jess Tuiomanufili

    How much do I need to walk on water?

  • PD

    How about the moss always sticks to the wall of a house?. If it works. Maybe it becomes million invention. Anyway! Good job and good luck for your invention!

  • scripting ends

    I can’t swim. If I cover myself with this, including a layer in my lungs, and jump in a pool, will I avoid drowning?

  • StealthCountryCitizen

    If accidentally inhaled, does it kill?

  • Me

    So, If I spay on my body I’m not take a bath anymore

  • atticus redbird

    more importantly, what are the chemicals used in this?
    what are the long term effects on exposure to it?

  • LC

    How is it on leather shoes or boots?? And does it make fabrics non-breathable?

  • Nick

    Why does he have to dry the iPhone after he pulls it out of the water? I thought water doesn’t stick to it

    • Aaron

      Because he doesn’t spray the screen. Just the holes.

  • Crash Dadio

    As
    cool as things like this seem to be, I REALLY worry about all of the
    long term damage done, for such an unusual, apparently nearly absolute
    property.
    My first thoughts:
    How long will it last? It looks
    good, but will this interfere with normal cellular function in living
    tissues? How about after it becomes pervasive in the environment –
    What harms will it cause? This works against many living things,
    absolute need to properly interact, with their/it’s immediate
    surrounding environment, for the most basic needs. It would seem to
    effect permeability of LOTS things, and that’s bad juju, right? Maybe
    I’m wrong? I’m ok with hearing it, if you got something to say here…
    This seems like a potential clusterphuk of problems down the road. I’m
    not on-board yet – even though I want to be. It just looks to perform a
    feat, that living tissues would be unable to interact with their
    surroundings meaningfully, in the presence of it. We can’t just pump
    this into our environment, without knowing- can we?.. Can we add
    something to negate it simply, if it’s later found to be a problem..?
    Will it remain persistent? How long will this property last? Will it
    degrade in natural sunlight or anything simple?
    Anyone have fresh thoughts on this?

  • Greg Hayes

    thats not new, my exes body has been producing that since ive known her!

  • Harry Street

    How long does it last? How often does it need to be reapplied?

  • Tiger Ty

    oh snaps

  • John Locke

    Why did you have to dry off the iphone if no liquid is supposed to stick to this stuff?

    • Sarah

      He didn’t spray the outside, only the inside electronic parts.

  • hell yeah
  • DisqusTed206

    hope that lovely young lady didn’t get any of that Never Wet on her trousers

  • Scam

    watch the non company vids of this product….gasoline strips it right away. Also, just rubbing the coating strips it. you would need to spray your shoes at LEAST once a day for example, and even then the normal wear and tear on the shoes would strip the coating pretty quick. in the words of one person this product works just long enough to make a convincing youtube video, then will wear away.

  • anthony_myers

    I’m curious to know that after coating the charging port of the iPhone, I don’t see how it can charge.

  • Стефан Соколоски

    What if you coat yourself with that and then you try and drown yourself in a lake? would you just suffocate?

  • Jacob Norman

    How long till you get cancer.

  • Gavin Shepherd

    Im guessing this stuff doesnt last forever and wears off as some say if get it on ya hands how can you get it off, and what about if its on your shirt how are yuo ever expected to clean it. its a temp solution that prob last a few hours, in that respect a waste of money

  • ~WingsDippedInSilver

    “I wish my iPhone 4 or 5 would not get so damaged every time I carefully place it at the bottom of a jug filled with water!” WTF?!

    • Emma Bain

      I know i remember what happened a few months ago… *waits for people attempting this then moaning their phone drowned*, if their mother told them to stick their finger in a fire would they do it? lol.

  • Sasha Martovskaya

    And how can I do the washing if my clothes was sprayed with that stuff?))

  • Vivienne Crowley

    It’s a shame the reviews for this are so poor. It apparently doesn’t perform like the video shows at all.

  • Bohemiac

    3 questions: 1) How many years does this impede the biodegradability of whatever it’s sprayed on? 2) If you accidentally inhale the mist, what’s it do to your nasal passage, esophagus & lungs? 3) How totally carcinogenic is this stuff?

  • Chahalala

    Is it possible to coat your lungs with this, further allowing you to breathe under water?

    • Emma Bain

      lol breathing this in would also repel oxygen since it’s a type of moisture :P so no wouldn’t work, in fact id not be so careless with this and not try to spray it all over you like deodorant and spray it outside but only on stuff like shoes, your socks, your pants but why do people have to be so OCD?, it’s a great idea but us humans are not that clean… we need to be slobs too at some point in the day.

  • Gett Charged

    BUT DOES IT BLEND?

  • Emma Bain

    Are you all seriously going to drown your phones again after that time 2 months ago when someone told you that the latest iphones were waterproof? lol that guy was a dumb ass even attempting that, electrics = not to be put in water, so don’t try to attempt it unless you accidentally miss areas while spraying it on.

    • wecandobetter758

      I think the idea here is that your phone won’t be toast if you accidentally dunk it (briefly) in the toilet while texting from the throne. I don’t think they’re advocating swimming with it in your pocket.

  • Mark Wallington

    How do you clean it?

  • Melissa

    what I want to know is how long does it last before you have to put a coat back on… like your phone for instance… and further more how do you wash your clothes if they cant get wet anymore? lol are you saying the clothes never gets smelly either??

  • isthereanybodyoutthere

    omg. a litter box was my first thought!

  • Tyrone

    The guy sprayed his shirt…how is he suppose to clean his shirt now?

  • kooky pirate

    I like how you created your own website with a hidden amazon referral link for the ‘buy here’ part of the article.. sneaky. Good way to get some extra money from all the suckers here who don’t know better and click on the link.

  • Jalee Ridd-How

    If you spray the inside of the box, I imagine that would prevent it from being recycled, would it not? Would this not make things take even longer to biodegrade???

  • Darren Raczek

    i have 2 questions. can this product be put on the paintwork of a vehicle, and can it be put on the windscreen , so bugs dont stick to it ?

    • Meltdown07

      I want to hear this too. Could be an awesome product for automotive

    • MXC

      The review posted above says it apparently leaves a hazy coating over the surface it’s sprayed on, so you probably want to avoid putting this on your paint job or your windshield. I’m guessing the demo in the video where they have a square of untreated glass shows how hazy the treated surface gets.

  • btezra

    if I spray it on a fish, for example, will they be unable to stay below the water and swim with all the other fish?

  • Mama Toad

    After clothes have been treated with NeverWet, do they wash well (ie – wash out body odor)? Does NeverWet eventually wash out of clothes and require another application?

  • Guest

    I bought a can of this stuff to test out. A) chicken. I inhaled a little bit and was able to chug water at an incredible rate for awhile afterwards. B) like really fine sandpaper once it dries C) no tumors yet D) I had to use acetone and gasoline because I didn’t listen to their “wear gloves” warnings

    Put the stuff on my boots, they say it repels oils, well it doesn’t repel motor oil. At least my boots really are waterproof now with all the motor oil soaked in them.

  • Jadxia
    • MXC

      That’s a shame. There are already a bunch of vids on youtube showing how well it works for the first few seconds before the effect wears off. They obviously didn’t design this thing for durability.

  • David Michael LePine

    just remember that iphone part when you void your warranty and we won’t ever replace it..EVER

  • Cathy Weston

    If you spray your clothes can you wash them after? O.O

  • Steven K

    So chemistry is now called magic, huh? Does that make me a magician?

    What if it’s raining and you spray allot of it outside, will it make the rain go around it and make it look like there’s something invisible in the middle of nothingness

    Flourocarbons are not new technology. They are toxic, and incredibly persistent in the environment.

  • VWAnderson

    Does this work on windshields, and if so, does it combat frost?

  • Nosy Nosy Nosy

    This sounds deadly to me. Human beings, animals, and plants are mostly water. I’d think you wouldn’t want this stuff accumulating in your system from spraying things or using treated products. I’m not a doctor or biologist, but I’m VERY curious about the safety studies.

    Damn….

  • Jason Drain

    Spray your mouth, nose, throat and then inhale some. Then you can never drown :D

    wonder if that would work against froze on car windows :D

    If you spray this on your porch or sidewalk, will it repel FROZEN WATER (sleet, snow, ice) as well?

    what happens if I drink it?

  • jonquimbly

    Clap-clap-clap to the PR firm running this product. This is the best hype campaign for an *existing* product category I’ve ever seen.

    It’s surprising that Junkee isn’t using affiliate links to earn money from spreading the hype.

  • myrna

    Thats cool how the shoes stayed clean

  • TexazEric

    I bought this stuff for my boots. It turned them white then I wore them in dew soaked grass for a few hours in the night. My feet were completely soaked within a few hours. This is not able to sustain its ability more than just a few minutes before it starts breaking down. I was very disappointed.

  • Christian

    WHOA Carolyn Labutta at :51 is HOTTTTT.

  • Fred Masih

    wasnt there something called ‘plastique’.. made from moth balls or something.. no wait.. dont try that.. shit..

  • Anthony Chiusano
  • Jason Lay

    So someone made a hydrophobic material that they can market cheaply? Okay.. Big whoop this shit has been around for YEARS people..

  • Meathole

    I’m curious what would happen, if you actually did spray your shirt with NeverWet, when you attempt to wash it? Will clothes/shoes just not come clean because it was treated?
    Also, what happens to your sweat when it hits the shirt? Does it just roll down you and settle in a puddle around your feet?

  • DJ Hogan

    Is anyone going to mention that the cans are actually $65? Not $20 as stated. I’m still buying though.

  • Wolfie Ashbringer

    GOOOOOOOOOOOSE!!!!!!!!!

  • Diana M. Joice

    If I treat my IPhone will the current still get to upload it?

  • Adrian Brown

    This is old news. Hydrophobics were used decades ago. The BBCs program ‘Tomorrow’s World’ ran an electric drill in an aquarium about twenty years ago.

  • Guest

    Is the iPhone NeverWet proof? As in will it destroy my phone if I spray it on there?

  • Andres

    If I apply it on my penis, am I going to be immune to STD?

  • Simon Pete

    Can I spray in on my face so that I can swim under water like a fish without tanks?

  • Linda

    where do you buy this product? For the phone it would be awesome!

  • Nessa Bun

    And how are you supposed to wash hydrophobic clothes?

    • Mario Not-so Super

      You probably never need to. Most of the bodily liquids and oils (including but not limited to blood, sweat and urine) won’t stick to the fabric. The question here is if the material is safe to come in touch with the skin at all times.

  • heyheythere

    Coolers are insulated the ice will melt and everything will get warm faster in a cardboard box

  • Becos Mushenkye

    could this be used as a condom?

    • jay

      classic LOOL

  • Nicole

    what happens if you are to wipe it? as in, not just spill or splash it… what if it gets smudged… basically relating to the ‘D’ question above “What happens if you get it on your hands and then you want to wash it off your hands? Will you be NeverWet forever?”…

  • miserableoldfart

    Does it work on cars?

  • Earl Casey

    Be great for a windshield coating!

  • Michael Southworth

    You just sprayed the cell phones data, power, and audio ports with this material. If it’s non conductive, what happens when you plug a device into those ports? Does it block the signal? If it’s conductive, how does it not short these ports out?

  • http://www.uberhub.net/ matt @ UBERHUB

    imagine they made a tooth paste like this that both cleans teeth and shields them afterwards : O OMG …..HINT HINT …..Do dat shiz.

  • http://www.adamnerland.com/ Adam Nerland

    Can I use this as antiperspirant?

  • jayho

    why doesn’t water flow off the iphone? hmmmmmmmmm.

    • Mack

      Well if you actually watch the video and engage your brain you’ll see exactly why.

      He doesn’t treat the whole phone, simply the inside of the back panel and the ports, to ensure that water doesn’t get in through any gaps and onto the internals of the phone. After all, water on the outside of the phone doesn’t harm it, so why do you need to prevent that? You simply need to stop that water getting inside the phone, which is achieved by treating the inside of the phone itself.

  • nathana865

    Bet its good for cheating at paintball or disposing of corpses

  • Adelle Parker

    How long does a coating last ?? Once you’ve done a garment lets say, will it come out in the wash, or don’t you ever have to wash it again ?? Oh, and is it flammable??

    well let me tell you my grown son was so happy to see this prduct he spent 20.00 to buy one can he used it on his wrk boots sprayed our lawn mower and a few other items it worked fine for a week or so but it does wear off and does not last so it is good for a one time or two time shot not worth 20.00 for a short cover use, need to improve the lasting time

  • Jeff Daschel

    If applied to shoes can one walk on water?

  • Stas Veklenko

    Looks great. However, it does not seem like a business idea, rather like a fun toy liquid to play with. Probably good for families with small kids, where kids are sloppy; and somewhere in toilets. But that’s it. Honestly, how often will YOU use it?

  • Joosep Seppi

    Is it toxic to? What if it gets into the human skin? How to remove this substance? Can my cat die if he should eat it in some way?

    How do you launder clothes that have been sprayed with it?

  • codrin

    can you still charge your phone after you spray it?
    a good video should be: ” how a t-shirt would look like after I spray it and wash it”

    This will destroy wet t-shirt contests, scientists may well also find other uses for it.

    what would happen if you sprayed this inside a condom or something…?

    This is called Biomimicry, its a new wave of science that`s allowed us to replicate molecules.

  • Madame Anena

    What are the environmental impacts of these incredible substances? How do they bio-degrade? Are they toxic to organic organisms or cancer causing? I love the idea, but we honestly don’t need more chemicals in our water and soil that have a half-life or shelf-life of over 100 years and toxify the Earth both during and after their usage.

  • http://kingdomcitizen.com/ Theo Morton

    So what’s the environmental impact? Biodegradable? What if it enters the food system?
