  Liquid Glass Breakthrough


Spray-on Glass

Would you like to be able to spray a thin layer of liquid glass onto your clothing, skin, car or any surface to keep water and bacteria out; and also make the surface impermeable to paint or stains?

Retailing is an unforgiving business: it’s all buying right and selling fast

Teddy bears. As a gift you can’t go too far wrong. My daughter now 19 still keeps dozens of teddies she had as a child. She fondly remembers the name of each one of them no matter how large or small and who gave it to her.
