Jodi Marks: You know if you’re trying to grow a garden or have a beautiful lawn, water is your best friend; but on any other surface it can be your biggest nightmare. Things like wood or concrete, metal, plastic, until now. Take a look at this.

Rust-Oleum, has come up with this product called, NeverWet. It’s a two-step process. And it’s pretty good because it’s a multi-surface, liquid repelling treatment. And it works virtually on anything.

I love the picture on the back of this box right here, because this shows exactly how it would work on an untreated surface like your work boots. Something as simple as your work boots. You spray it on and virtually makes them water, mud, and ice repellent.

Also, you can put it on work gloves. Something like these leather gloves here. Just spray on the application, let it dry, and again, it’s ready to go. You can also put it on, say, your planter boxes to preserve them because over time a cedar planter box will actually start to break down.

So this is a very quick, easy application. And after you do just these few steps, all your things will be water repellant and cleaner longer.
