One of the things that often features on our Japan shopping list is "waterproofing" spray from the 100円 shop (that's about 60pence at today's rate).
Mega useful stuff this! Great for London living as it can be used to boost the water resistance of an old brolly, trainers and even on outer garments like this unisex oversized parka that I bought recently from Pop Boutique.
Though the spray will not achieve a perfectly waterproof barrier, it does a brilliant job at making things water and weather resistant. Of course it has to be used in a well ventilated area and will not work on garments that are labelled "dry clean only".
You can buy similar sprays in the UK. However, I have yet to find one that works this well at such a tiny cost.
