Mainly because this stuff sucks. Very cool advertising just doesn't last. I'd say $1 is what it's worth.

When I bought it ($3 Ace) I'd say it was a bad deal. Even at $1. The stuff will leave a blue film on what you're applying it to. My shoes are still waterproof 6 months later. Slight blue tint. Same with anything else I've applied it to. Great concept. Poor execution.

LOL, wow. This stuff must have bombed. It was $20 when it came out. Pretty sure I have a new set in my garage I paid $10 for a couple years ago.

It lasts, but you have to use the right application.

The main problems are:
1) If you step on it or scuff it or whatever, it won't last.
2) It leaves a white film on everything

Put it on a white satellite dish for example, and that's the perfect application. Put it on your garage floor like some people were thinking would work, and it won't last a week. Put it on anything that isn't white, and you'll notice the white haze, ruining the product.

Bought a couple sets at my local DT last week. Going to try it on some work gloves for digging around in wet ground. It is obviously at DT because no one can figure out a good use for it given the issues already mentioned. My friend uses it on his cat's litter box but has to reapply fairly often. Worth $1 to play around with the stuff.

Why would anyone put waterproofing on a garage floor? Don't understand the purpose.

Its not a bad idea in theory. If you spray something with Neverwet and then pour oil on it, it will just slide right off, or be absorbed by a paper towel. No liquid will stick, so cleanup would be super easy.

Problem is, neverwet works by producing billions and billions of microscopic spikes on the surface, similar to how a giant lotus leaf has billions of tiny "hairs" on its surface that prevents water sticking to it, so it just runs right off and the leaf is always dry.

Step on the leaf, just like stepping on neverwet though, and you screw up that surface, and then it no longer beads water.

I used this stuff on a canvas cover that goes over the sidecar on my motorcycle. Even after almost 2 years it's still repelling water very well. It did give the fabric a "frosted" look although so keep that in mind.

Maybe useful for protecting varnished or painted exterior wood pieces from rain?

If you regularly sit on it, no. The stuff will be rubbed off by your body and the friction. Its not a durable coating.

It will also leave a splooge white stain on anything you spray it on.

Its an awesome product if you fall into the very narrow niche of usage:

1) Its toxic to ingest so don't spray it on anything that touches food.

2) It leaves a white haze so don't spray it on anything that isn't white or you care what it looks like.

3) Its not durable, so don't spray it on anything you're going to step on, sit on, or touch the surface a lot yourself or with something else.

4) Its flammable, so don't spray it on anything that gets super hot

So examples of good applications:

1) A white patio umbrella fabric

2) A white satellite dish

3) An oil funnel

4) A toilet plunger

5) A light colored patio furniture cover
