The lotus effect refers to self-cleaning properties that are a result of very high water repellence ( superhydrophobicity), as exhibited by the leaves of the lotus flower (). Dirt particles are picked up by water droplets due to the micro- and nanoscopic architecture on the surface, which minimizes the droplet's adhesion to that surface.
