FAQ

WHAT IS MAGIC SPRAY?

Let us break down the science for you! Magic Spray's patented formula contains pure, particle free Silicon Dioxide – SiO2 – which means that it contains ‘pure glass’. The glass is in a molecular form and is held in a liquid. It doesn’t become ‘glass’ until it’s allowed to cure (which takes approximately 24 hours). Hence your shoes and bags are only protected 24 hours after they have been sprayed!

SiO2 is completely inert, harmless and indigestible, with zero toxicity. It carries no allergic warnings and is environmentally friendly. It is commonly found in nature as quartz, the most abundant family of materials on Earth.  It was extremely important to us that this product was easy to use inside your home around your children and pets. :)

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Magic Spray utilises the revolutionary features of nanotechnology to apply an invisible oleophobic barrier to the surface of your shoes, bags or other textiles.  Simply put it creates a new surface on top of your shoes and bags protecting them from liquids and UV.  Magic Spray can be sprayed on nubuck, suede, soft leathers, canvas, primeknit and other textiles. 

Our formula bonds SiO2 particles to the individual fibres of the surface at a nanometre level – roughly 500 times thinner than a human hair – and these billions of SiO2 particles form permanently bonded layers that build up an invisible barrier that renders water and oil unable to touch the fibres. Simply put, it is a spray that creates liquid proof surfaces. Liquids bead up and roll off.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MAGIC SPRAY AND OTHER WATER REPELLENT SPRAYS?

Many water repellant sprays currently on the market provide approximately three to six weeks of protection. Magic Spray however uses a unique nanotechnology which bonds with individual fibres on your shoes or bags, resulting in much longer protection (six months). This is good for your wallet and your time! :)

Our Magic Spray is a non-toxic, eco-friendly, non-flammable, odourless and 100% breathable water repellent spray. There are no health risks that come with using our product. Many other repellent sprays have hazard and health warnings with regard to solvent abuse and/or damaging effects on your health.

HOW MANY SHOES CAN I COVER WITH ONE 180ML SPRAY BOTTLE?

This depends on the material you’re treating and its absorbency. Following our application method, one 180ml bottle can be used with 5 to 6 pairs of size 8 suede shoes (not boots).  For more absorbent materials you may need to use more spray to get the same protection.

It is not advised to use the bottle for more than 5 to 6 pairs of shoes, as this will reduce the overall performance and protection.

HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?

Magic Spray protects your shoes or bags for six months to one year.  After six months we recommend testing your shoe or bag with water to see if the protective barrier is still in place.

Magic Spray's protective barrier lasts based on your usage of your favorite shoes or bags.  For example if you were to leave a pair of treated shoes unused for 1 year, they would still remain repellent and protected. However daily usage comes with some rubbing of the surface as well as exposure to lots of dirt and dust and this eventually breaks down the protective barrier.  It's always good to check if the protection is still in place with small drops of water.  If it's not then it's time to reapply.  

HOW DO I CLEAN MY ITEMS AFTER I USE MAGIC SPRAY?

If you've gotten liquid or dirt on your shoes or bags we recommend cleaning them with water only as soon as possible, by simple rinsing the affected area with water.  Then you can use a microfibre cloth to gently pat the area and remove the liquid.  This will make any residue easy to remove.

If the spillage has been left for long periods of time and/or worked into the material, use a damp microfibre cloth and gently dab the area clean.

You can re-apply Magic Spray to the affected area once it is completely dry.
