Paper Towel Raft (Floating Smartphone Trick)

The least absorbent paper towel you'll ever see. This hydrophobic paper towel has the ability to float fairly heavy objects such as hand tools and Smartphones on water. This video was inspired by my vehicle's car cover. :-) Enjoy!

#2 It think it's actually the worse part. I thought the paper towel has hydrophobic because of a cool physics trick.
Nope, it's hydrophobic because it has been covered with an hydrophobic spray, what a surprise...
