The £67 Self-cleaning Shirt that Repels Liquid Spills


Water repelling T-shirt

Hi tech lovers! It’s been about 18 hours of war between me and a stubborn flu but I’m back now. You can follow us on twitter or sign up for email updates.

There’s a new shirt in the market called the “The Grind” that repels spills and dirt. The inventors say they used “hydrophobic” technology to make the shirt. The word hydrophobic means to repel water.

The makers say the shirt was born out of a project aimed at creating the perfect t-shirt using hydrophobic nanotechnology.

Using the advanced hydrophobic nanotechnology leads to creating fabric that repels liquid and stains; it’s almost waterproof. (See video at the bottom.)

The inventors created The Grind using cotton. The cotton is tightly wound to create a complex nanostructure. These complex patterns on the surface of the shirt increases its contact area with liquids, amplifying the repellent effect.

The shirt repels liquid but at times little amount of residue might remain. Since the shirt repels stains as well, you can simply wipe off the residue.

The shirt can be washed though. The waterproof effect lasts for about 80 washes and can be “reactivated” when the shirt is tumble-dried.

The clothing company, Threadsmiths sells the waterproof shirt at $89 dollars. They also sell liquid repellent cotton t-shirts – The Cavalier – at $49. 

(Prices might be more or less by a few cents at the website when you visit the links at the bottom.)

This sort of clothing will be great for infants. Not that you won’t wash them anymore; washing will be less often and easier. 

Your waterproof shirt is available and you can order yours now at TheThreadSmiths. The company says they will ship to any part of the world. For $10 discount, use the code "10BUCKS" at checkout.
