A bit more here - https://www.theguardian.com/science/2019/nov/18/scientists-develop-slippery-toilet-coating-stop-poo-sticking

 - which includes the caveat:
“As this paper shows, such toilets would need less water per flush to clean them and also increase toilet hygiene. My one worry, which I’m sure the scientists will address as they do further work, is what happens to the coating when it does wear away through use – how would chemicals involved affect the environment if adopted globally?”

Non-stick lavvies for all seems like a good idea, but we thought that about plastic. Just have to keep using the brush for the time being  :-\

There's also (what I seem to remembers as) the Great Los Angeles Pooh Mountain. A drive across the city to install low flush loos meant there wasn't enough water in the sewers to take all the poo away.

Of course, also, imagine researching this project...

I'd volunteer a sample, but it's a bit crap.

A while ago I bought adhesive called 'sticks like shit'. It has to be bought trade counter. I can't think why.

I thought this related to the legend of the 'recovered'royal stool on the Britannia that had been dried, varnished and mounted on a plaque.

I was wrong. Non stick loos? Now that is progress. Instead of non stick coatings, how about concentrating on loos that don't need multiple flushes to get rid of everything?
