A University student from San Francisco has invented a T-shirt that cannot stain .That is ,the new invention magic T-shirt can resist any spills and splashes including Coca-Cola, tomato ketchup, mustard, milkshakes, beer, ink and even red wine.
Patel made a prototype using a spray-on chemical, but realised it would only last for one wash. He then began looking at ways to incorporate the technology into the fabric. He created a fabric that has the nanotechnology bonded to the fibres on a microscopic level.
‘Most liquid molecules will not be able to touch the fabric because of a microscopic layer of air that forms between the liquid and fabric.
‘This is because the fabric is layered with billions of silica particles. Water based liquids will form a 150 degree sphere and roll right off! As a result, this barrier protects your shirt from potential accidents.’
After testing his method, the business student created a page about the invention, named Silic, on crowdfunding website Kickstarter.
The shirts are expected to be on sale online from May and will cost around £30. 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. The shirt should also not be dry cleaned.
