The spray, which forms an easy-clean coating one millionth of a millimetre thick - 500 times thinner than a human hair - can be applied to virtually any surface.t is hoped that liquid glass, a compound of almost pure silicon dioxide, could soon replace a variety of cleaning products which are harmful to the environment, leaving our world coated in an invisible, wipe-clean sheen.

The patent for the technology is owned by a German company, Nanopool.

Neil McClelland, Nanopool's UK project manager, told The Independent: "Very soon almost every product you purchase will be protected with a highly durable, easy-to-clean coating ... the concept of spray-on glass is mind-boggling."
