Cleaning trick: Make it hydrophobic ?

by Jeremy

I'm looking for cleaning tricks and I came across sprays and waxes that can make surfaces (mirrors, windows, etc.) hydrophobic.

In theory, I think it enables it to catch dust and dirt in water drops, and to wipe it clean with a spray of water (lotus effect).

This would make cleaning of shower doors, bathroom mirror or windows almost unnecessary, but it seems too easy to be true.
Anyone knows about it? An opinion, an explanation?
Thanks :)
