isShoe Repulse Water Repellent, Waterproof, Hydrophobic Spray?

Hydrophobic, water repellent, waterproof spray. These terms are always used interchangeably when it comes to the concept of a shoe spray that helps prevent water or liquid substances from penetrating the surface of your shoes. So which is the correct term to use?

Too long didn’t read; They are all the same to keep water from penetrating the surface.

All of these terms direct towards the same idea of applying a coating on the surface of a product when it comes to keeping water from penetrating or entering the particular area. The amazing moment when you have applied it on your expensive suede shoes and you see the water bouncing off without leaving any stains on your shoe!

How does it work?

The shoe spray contains methyl isobutyl, ketone, butyl acetate, acetone and mineral spirits. Sounds too technical to understand? Basically, these ingredients when mixed together forms a quick drying agent that creates an invisible hydrophobic layer on the surface of what you have sprayed it on and the layer keeps your shoes waterproof/water-repellent.

What can it be sprayed on?

Depending on your expectations, the isShoe Repulse can be used on any fabric or material without causing discolouration however we do highlight that it will create a matte texture of translucent materials such as glass or see-through plastic. The reason for this is because of the fast drying agent that is present in the can that will form a “frozen” effect on the surface. Not noticeable on fabric materials so it will not alternate the looks of your shoes, clothes or raincoat!
