Car washing no longer necessary

Wouldn’t it be great if you didn’t have to wash your car anymore? I would love it. Well, your wish is coming true. You think I’m joking, but I’m not. The chemical engineering department of a university in theNetherlandshas developed a special coating that enables cars to self clean themselves. All you need is an occasional rain, and the dirt melts off the highly water resistant surface.

Not only this, but the coating self-repairs superficial scratches. This might reduce some of our business, but Auto Cosmestic Solutions will have to adapt. Fortunately, the coating doesn’t repair deep scratches. You will still need us for that.

How it works is a bit complicated. If you are interested in the science behind the technology, read this story from Science Daily.

But there is some bad news. The special coating will not be ready for production for another 6 to 8 years. So you can’t retire your cleaning bucket and sponge quite yet.
