New Toilet Spray Prevents Poop From Sticking To The Seat
We've all been in a position where we're running like a cowboy, squeezing the cheeks tight enough to make a diamond, only to open the door to see a toilet that looks like it was in the bed of Cletus's truck when he was out mud-bogging.

It's a two step process within two sprays. The first spray grows molecules as it dries, creating a layer that's close to a million times thinner than a human hair. The second spray, a lubrication, creates a slick, nonstick surface that caused the "Synthetic Fecal Matter" to slide down in lab tests. This begs the question, why and who is out there trying to make a substance similar to that of a wet log?
Globally, 141 billion liters (about 37,248,259,382 gallons) of water is flushed down the toilet, six times the daily water consumption of the entire continent of Africa.
According to the creators, a large amount of the water is used to "scour naturally adhesive human feces" from the inside of a toilet.
