In news that will be a boon to germophobes and obnoxious mothers everywhere, the University of Georgia has announced it’s invented a spray-on anti-bacterial coating.
Essentially, it’s spray plastic that kills germs. The neat thing about the coating is that it can be applied to anything, stands up to multiple washes, doesn’t need to be incorporated into the manufacturing process, and kills pretty much anything. Medical staff are excited, but not nearly as excited as bowling alleys and strip clubs.
Of course, the problem is really less about germs than the fact that our obsession with antibacterial and antimicrobial soaps and other cleaning products is making us more and more sick, but on the other hand, it will be nice to know that my regular lunch at the Foxy Lady will be that much cleaner.
