Forget Lekki’s colourful water that over time compulsory dyes your clothes a different colour. Forget clumsy moments and bad days when stains are unavoidable. Even if you are just plain too lazy to wash, a new invention is here to thee rescue.

University student Patel from San Francisco has invented the Silic shirt that can resist any spills and splashes including Coca-Cola, tomato ketchup, mustard,  milkshakes, beer, ink and even red wine.

According to reports,  the clothing is made from  polyester, which has been infused with a combination of chemicals that make it  resistant to water but it feels exactly like a t shirt. After testing his method, the business student  created a page about the invention, named Silic, on crowdfunding website Kickstarter.

HOW DOES SILIC REPEL  WATER?

The material in the Silic shirt has billions  of silica particles bonded to the fibres on a microscopic level.

This means they won’t irritate the skin.

When water-based liquids hit the surface of  this material they form a 150-degree sphere and roll off.

According to Patel’s Kickstarter page, there  are certain steps wearers have to take to make sure the T-shirts stays  waterproof.

These include not using fabric softener in a  machine wash, no bleaching or washing with colours and no ironing.

Patel also advises wearers not to dry clean  the shirt.

To reactivate the water repellency,  the  T-shirt must also be put through a tumble dryer on a low heat at  least once  every three washes.
