Removing Static Electricity from Your Home

READY IN: 2mins
Recipe by 2Bleu

Cold weather and low humidity can cause you to walk around the house getting shocked by static electricity, especially from your carpets. You can easily and inexpensively remove the charge from the carpets with this simple home remedy. We use ultra downy clean breeze, but any good quality fabric softener will work fine. This also makes a great 'faux-febreez' to help make your home smelling fresh & clean. :) Other great things this spray does: Spray some on a dry paper towel, and toss it in the dryer! It's more economical than dryer sheets, :)

This works really well. I wish I'd waited to review it in late Jan or Feb, because that is the only time it is cold here. But, it works great on dresses that stick to your legs when you are wearing hose, and also keeps your hair from flying around with static electricity. You see....I had to get creative! No photos....I didn't want photos of my legs or my hair. :)
