anti static spray



Don't you just hate static cling? I know I do! I was spending a small fortune on Static Guard to get me through the dry winter months. But not any more! I save money by making my own anti static spray. And you can save money too!  This is one of the easiest recipes for homemade products you will ever find. Say bye bye to static cling and all those annoying little shocks that go along with it!

Step 1:  BUY A SPRAY BOTTLE -- Pick up a cheap spray bottle at your local dollar store or at Walmart. You can usually find spray bottles in the laundry section. You can also find smaller spray bottles in the cosmetics section.

Step 2:  BUY LIQUID FABRIC SOFTENER -- Pick up some liquid fabric softener. You will find this in the laundry section near the fabric softener dryer sheets. Look for blue bottles like Downy.  But then save money by buying the store brand next to the Downy! Most stores have a cheaper brand. If you are sensitive to fragrances look for fragrance free brands.

Step 3:  MIX IT UP -- You are going to put water and the liquid fabric softener in the spray bottle. Add 2 tablespoons of liquid fabric softener per 1 cup of water. Then shake before each use.  You can spray on your clothing to stop static cling (don't spray silk or dry clean fabrics) and you can also spray your carpets and furniture. You can even spray your pet's bed so it won't get static shocks!

Great idea but what is the problem with using this on silk and dry clean material?
