Important scientific breakthrough might mark the end of stains1/19/2013
Mud-puddle-splashing kids, bumble-fingered burger eaters and 1950s housewives, rejoice. A scientific breakthrough could spell the end of clothing stains. University of Michigan materials scientists say they've discovered a superomniphobic coating that renders the surface of pretty much any material resistant to pretty much any liquid. When water, oil, hydrochloric acid, highly caustic sodium hydroxide, or even ketchup hits the surface from any angle, instead of being absorbed, it simply bounces or rolls right off. Great news for mess-making consumers. Let's hope the laundry-detergent lobby doesn't get wind of it. [Source]
