A Homemade Static Spray

A spray bottle, water and some liquid fabric softener are all you need to make this static spray.

| October/November 2002

This past winter I learned that liquid fabric softener, diluted in a spray bottle, works to reduce the annoying problem of static electricity from dry heat. Just lightly spray the fabric softener on your carpet, especially if you have a computer or other electronic devices, and the static electricity is gone. I do suggest testing the solution on a small spot to make sure it does not stain your carpet or furniture.
