Various organogel materials with either a liquid or solid surface layer have recently been designed and prepared. These surface materials can substantially reduce the adhesion of foreign deposits such as water, blood, paint, ice, and so on; therefore, they exhibit great potential for the easy removal of foreign deposits. Here, a brief discussion about the mechanism of organogel materials in reducing adhesion is given; then, examples of liquid organogels for fighting against varieties of complex fluidic deposits are presented, and efforts in preventing the depletion of liquid are discussed. Finally, applications of antiadhesion organogels with multifunctionality, and the strategy of replacing liquids with solids are presented.
