Wow, that's a no-brainer to put on clothes. Wonder how much it costs.

I can only imagine how miraculous that would be for my Jet Black that is dusty within minutes of a hand-wash.

Under Armor just came out with sweat clothes that have a similar treatment that prevents the outer surface from getting wet, even in rain or snow.

That's a pretty slick product and I'd like to get some for various uses but consider what the impact would be if a tanker full of that stuff spilled...

I have 4 spots on the driveway of my mom's house that are permanently water sealed from me using extreme tire shine (once) when I was a teenager. Literally these spots are bright white every time it rains and this was about 12 years ago!

I can only imagine the amount of water spray coming off cars on the highway on a rainy day.

I went to their website and there's no information on where to buy it, only that they focus on industrial partnerships. I need this!!
