You guys — you’re not even going to believe this product. I had to make a video to show you because it’s hard to convey exactly what it does in photos alone. You may remember last year I waterproofed our porch with Rainguard. Well, they’ve come out with a new product called Hydro-Lok and this stuff is pretty amazing.
It creates a moisture barrier on almost any surface. According to Rainguard, it creates a clear, deep-penetrating, and non-film-forming chemically-reactive water repellent that contains no silicone oils, paraffin wax, or urethanes. Basically, it waterproofs your stuff and protects it from mold, mildew and water damage. You can use it on so many things: work boots, gloves, patio furniture, driveways, wood, leather, metal, concrete, canvas, porous stone, and more. I opted to use it on my favorite outdoor pillows that I bought at West Elm a couple years ago and have been afraid to use outside because they are mostly white and I don’t want them to get ruined. (Wise purchase, right?)
Not only did I pour water on my pillows and watch it bounce right off, but I also poured red wine on them! Yes, on my white pillows! It came right off.
Check out this video to see this stuff in action. Unfortunately I made the rookie mistake of not turning my iPhone sideways to film, so please excuse my skinny video. Oops! Oh and also excuse my wild hair. I have 3 kids and one is 3 months old, so I’m lucky it didn’t look even worse. Haha!
Hydro-Lok will be available in early March in over 2,000 Walmart stores nationwide. Visit Rainguard’s Facebook page, where you can enter a contest to win $500 by sharing a photo or video of how you creatively use Hydro-Lok. The most creative will win. (Further details can be found on their Facebook page.)
