If you haven’t heard of Rust-Oleum NeverWet Moisture Repelling Treatment, don’t worry, neither had I. Thanks to my son Toby, I got a winded explanation of what it is. Apparently, it’s awesomeness in a can.
Basically, Rust-Oleum NeverWet repels water. You spray it on in a 2 step process and magic happens. Since I hadn’t heard of it before, Toby was quick to show me exactly how cool it was. He took a white tshirt and did the neverwet process on it. Once it was dry, he put it on. Next thing I knew, he was grabbing condiments out of my fridge, specifically mustard and this is what happened….
Pretty stinkin’ cool huh! We did this for fun just but I wanted to share with you so that you could get the whole idea of how it works. While I could think of 100 things on what to spray the Rust-Oleum NeverWet on, I simply wanted to make my bird feeder a little tougher against the Texas wind, heat, and rain.
Bird feeders can get expensive but I bought this little one for $3.97. I used Rust-Oleum red spray paint to give it a quick makeover. Once dry, I started the NeverWet process.
You start with Step 1, the base coat. You spray a coat of Rust-Oleum NeverWet and let dry 30 minutes.
Once the base coat is dry, you go to step 2 and spray a coat of the top coat. You’ll let this dry as well and then repeat.
The Frosty Clear Rust-Oleum NeverWet does discolor slightly to a flat frost finish. You can see in the final photo that it wasn’t that noticeable on this particular project but you should always test. When we tested it by pouring water on it, you could see the water beads roll right off the bird feeder. SUCCESS!
Rust-Oleum NeverWet can be used on metal, wood, aluminum, galvanized metal, PVC, concrete, masonry, asphalt, vinyl siding, fiberglass, canvas, most plastics and more. It is NOT recommended for clothing or electronics. As I said above, the white shirt demo that my son did, was just to show you how it works.
I could think of tons of other uses too but I wanna know what you would use it on? I think my next project is to repaint my metal wagon wheels and then apply the NeverWet to minimize rust!
