Call us crazy, but we can’t stop watching the infomercial for NeverWet, a new spray-on coating that waterproofs everything it touches. This may not sound impressive -- after all, lots of things claim to repel water -- but seeing this stuff in action will make your eyes widen and your jaw drop.
Especially if you’re a parent.
This mysterious miracle worker looks like it can take on the gnarliest, most complicated messes our kids serve up. Chocolate sauce slides right off the top of a canvas shoe. Melted ice turns to beads inside of a cardboard box. A submerged iPhone rises from the water unscathed. It’s enough to make your head spin.
We know we should be skeptical. We should wonder about the ghastly side effects of releasing yet another chemical into the air. We should think about the polar bears and the ice caps and everything else this most unnatural of products could easily affect.
But instead, one question keeps racing through our minds: Does this thing come in bulk?
