Make your own anti-static spray

By  |  127 Comments

I absolutely dread getting static electricity in my clothes. It’s annoying and it totally ruins the look of an outfit. I’ve also noticed lately that more designers are using polyester instead of silk and static and poly go hand-in-hand.

So in an effort to say goodbye to static forever I went on a mission to find a solution.

I remember an old friend telling me about this easy home recipe and after playing around with the quantities I’ve now got the perfect formulation. It’s amazing and well worth trying.

 

STYLE INSIDER ANTI-STATIC SPRAY

You will need:

2 Tbs liquid fabric softener
1 Cup water
Spray bottle

 

Method

Pour water and liquid fabric softener into spray bottle and shake well.

 

To use:

Shake bottle before each use and lightly mist on your clothes whenever static occurs.

 

Tips:

  • I decant some of the mixture into a smaller spray bottle to keep in my car for emergencies.
  • If you don’t want any smell choose a fragrance-free liquid fabric softener.
  • Don’t spray on silk or dry-clean-only fabrics.
  • You can even lightly mist your car seats to avoid static getting trapped in your clothes.

 

I’d love to hear how you get on with this fab product. It will change your life.

    Thanks Leonie, I’m going to give this a try. On set I have used hairspray but I don’t find it that effective. As you mentioned, there are so many synthetic fabrics used these days.

    Hey does this spray leave marks on the clothes? I have a bright pink dress I’m wearing to a wedding (that always has static in it) and was worried it would come out in spots? (like oil stains that never dry…)

    No it doesn’t leave marks at all. I used mine again today and it works SO well. You will be amazed!

    I have found that lotion works too! I hate using spray bottles, because they never work upside-down, and that’s the angle I’m spraying from if I’m already wearing the dress or skirt. On a whim (and out of desperation) one day, I ducked into a bathroom, got my hands wet, and rubbed a little of my hand lotion into it. When I had achieved a good balance so that I could feel the lotion but the liquid on my hands was clear, I brushed it on the static-y skirt with my palms. Instant static removal. I don’t know how it measures up to fabric softener, but I usually don’t carry fabric softener around in my purse and it lasted a lot longer than just brushing some water onto the static-y area does.
