NEVER Wash Your Car Again!

A couple years back you may have heard of prototype coatings that repel dirt and moisture.

Well, it looks like it made prime time.
Ever Dry | UltraTech International Inc.

Spray it on and enjoy the benefits of a self cleaning coating.


Unfortunately, it's only available in translucent colors (they're apparently working on transparency) so I probably wouldn't do your panels just yet.

I think the true appeal for this is the engine compartment and undercarriage...at least until they work out transparency...

NOTE: I do not work or advertise for this company. I saw this on Reddit and had to post!

Seems promising for many purposes. However, I wonder how it handles things like road tar, bug grime, brake dust, etc.

When they make a transparent one, sign me up! This is going on every alloy wheel in my family's arsenal; 1 Summer and 1 Winter set per car, for 4 cars. Not easy to keep clean. :eek:

Never wash during the winter (although it's supposedly going to be above 40 today so I may break that rule.)

didn't the guy on "Sunny with a chance of meatballs" develop shoes like that??? You sprayed them on and never had to worry about getting wet or dirty???? It kinda looks like a Rain-X on crack.... but definitely has ALOT of practical applications.....
