    I am not sure if I have not posted a video of something similar (or was it the same product?) in the past, but it still amazes me how effective these things are. Sure, there is a huge gap between lab conditions and the real world, still - fascinating.

    Looks like a very slick substance, you can see the shiny plastic look of the CEO's t-shirt, I wonder how the coating holds up to be washed? Is it flammable? Also, I wouldn't spray anything into a phone still under warranty, it most likely will invalidate it. But it still looks like a good waterproofing product. Wish I'd had it when I got my expensive new tile floors with the "mabe pearl" grout in my old house, the hours I spent weekly on the floor with a small brush and soft scrub bleach, then brush back on the worthless non waterproof waterproofing.

    I thought this thread was gonna be about something else o_O

    I wonder how you get it off, maybe it's permanent? Or it might dissolve in something non-polar?

    According to the on-line criticisms I saw, it works well when first applied but it doesn't last at all. UV kills it quickly and it flakes off of clothes.

    I saw a similar product advertised about a year ago and it had stupendous reviews, BUT ... it cost well over 10 times as much as NeverWet.

    Other product we talked about in the past was Ultra-Ever Dry:

    Yes, I agree with the deceiving part.
    I was looking for a place to buy it when I found that article. :smile:
    It looks like they sell it in Home Depot in US and Canada.
