While they won't dry clean in a matter of seconds like Marty McFly's apparel will, ODO's self-cleaning jeans and T-shirts are the next best thing. Currently up on Kickstarter and already sitting at 500% funded with 45 days left, these products claim to be the future of clothing.

Available for an investment of $99 for the jeans or $35 for the T-shirt, the retail pricing of these products will come in at $130 and $45 respectively after release. Repelling liquids ranging from water to honey and coffee, these clothes are quoted as "stain proof and stink proof! Yet stylish, clean and comfortable," on the official Kickstarter page here.

 

Designed not only to repel exterior liquid influences, these products also contain what ODO calls 'self-clean technology', aiming to eliminate odor by utilizing a silver-infused thread into the jean denim. As for a slightly 'sciency' explanation, the denim fabric is woven with pure metallic silver fibers and works (on exposure to moisture and oxygen) to release positively-charged Ag+ ions, repelling all odors created by your body.

 

Pick up a pair for yourself here, they're selling fast!
