    Every thing in the video was absorbent and the material being treated with it probably needs to be absorbent to work.
    It'd be great for treating camping / rain gear though.

    the beaded water may cause everything to be slick regardless of temperature

    Would it make wet sidewalks a long slip and slide?

    my gut reaction would that it would make things really slippery, especially in a light drizzle. Kinda like a driveway that has gotten a fresh seal coating every year for the last 10 years. I do think it requires some thought to spray on plow blades or salt spreaders. As usual, price will dictate if anyone uses it. I could see Walgreens or CVS spraying advertisements for umbrellas in a rainstorm with it

    I did try the rustoleum product. It specifically says not for clothes etc. Biggest problem is that it dries frosted. We tried leather boots and got a month out it but got tired of people pointing out that we stepped in something. Home Depot was selling the kits for 2.00 about 6 months ago on sale in the store
