protective film

spray on plastic film used to keep cleaning quick and easy, intended for kitchen or bathroom use.
  [vote for,

An aerosol product, which would be sprayed onto a clean, non-porous surface, like counters, bathtubs, sinks, toilet seats and so on. A thorough spraying covers the surface, and when dry, leaves a thin, transparent, smooth, waterproof (the product is non-polar and thus not water soluble) film, in an unbroken layer. When the surface of the film is dirty from ordinary use, rather than wash and scrub the surface clean, just peel the film away, throw it out, and spray on a fresh layer. Cleaning the bathroom means nothing more than peeling, tossing, and spraying, and could be over in just a minute or less.

       Plasti-dip spray comes in clear as well as colors. May not be exactly what you had in mind, but seems related enough to warrant a (link)

       If there were a product like this I'm betting that it would be big in hospitals.   

       There is that rubbery protective coating--usually a greenish-blue--that's peelable and is often sprayed on fine polished surfaces like skin-grade clad aluminum. I think, though, that whatever surface you apply such a coating to needs to have that high polish, or the coating won't be easily removed.

       Likely some sort of release coating would have to be applied first for the proposed idea.

       Maybe. I know there are bazillions of different types of mold release agents used with plastic and composite molding. Maybe some of those would work. "Pam"? "Baker's Joy"?   

       I've been trying to find a link to some gel stuff that is applied to glass to make a stained glass effect but can be peeled off later. If that could be thinned and sprayed, it might work.   

       Industrial strength "liquid bandage"?
half, Aug 19 2003

       "liquid bandage" is actually a type of medical-grade Crazy Glue. Cyanoacrylate, I believe. Not too easy to peel off.
