Struggling to get the last bit of mustard out of the bottle or the last squirt of toothpaste out of the tube can be one of the most frustrating feelings.
But a new coating called LiquiGlide might eliminate that problem. The substance can keep the inside of a container permanently wet, allowing its contents to easily slide out anytime. Look how easy it is get to mayonnaise out of a bottle coated in LiquiGlide:
LiquiGlide was originally created in 2012 by MIT associate professor Kripa Varanasi and several of his grad students. They’ve since formed their own company, and on June 7 LiquiGlide announced that the product is now commercially available to be used for packaged goods, including condiments, dairy products, toothpaste, lotions, and liquid adhesives like glue. That means companies can now start buying the product to put inside containers.
