water + absorptive material = no slip

This wet rag was the inspiration for the WET-GRIP glove project.

Fun Fact

By adding water, the surfaces have

a stronger connection with one another.

Adhesion and cohesion are water properties formed by hydrogen bonds that affect every water molecule on Earth and also the interaction of water molecules with molecules of other substances. Essentially, cohesion and adhesion are the "stickiness" that water molecules have for each other and for other substances.
