No More Bibs: Stain Repellent Clothes Using Nanotechnology

Published on October 23, 2013 at 8:21 AM

Imagine eating dinner without worrying about your children getting dirty, bothering to put a bib on them or even caring about their soup splashing on their brand new clothes.

That's the vision No More Bibs had in mind when creating their stain repellent clothes that are nearly impossible to stain.

No More Bibs is able to repel 99% of the liquids a child might be exposed to including chocolate, ice cream, mud, blood, juice, drool, paint, oil, ketchup, syrup etc.

Using nanotechnology, the outer layer of the fabric turns into a liquid repellent surface that turns liquids into these rather large droplets that roll right off the surface.

Since air molecules are smaller, they're still able to go in and out of the fabric freely which causes the fabric to be just as airy and comfortable as regular cotton clothes.

The repellent factor is non-toxic and non-carcinogenic leaving the clothes completely safe to use by kids and in accordance with the Children's Safe Products Act. The clothes are made out of 100% cotton and can be machine washed.

No More Bibs is a patented application invented by Penina First, an Israeli-American serial entrepreneur who has previously founded Swifto - a US Company who currently employs close to 100 US employees.

First comes from a large family and has a scientific background in Chemistry, Biology, and Biotechnology. These two factors enabled her to both be aware of the problem and find an effective solution for it.

No More Bibs recently launched its Kickstarter campaign with a goal of reaching $40,000 in order to manufacture the clothes. So far, it reached over $4,000 and counting.

How much do the clothes cost? For $19 you'll be able to buy a stain repellent child's shirt and for $25 a stain repellent pair of children's pants. Or for $24 an adult size shirt. Not a bad deal considering how much laundry they'll save you.
