Maker of Albert Einstein hairdos, attractive skirts sticking to the legs, and that pleasant electric shock when getting towels out of the dryer.
I’m not going to bore you with a physics lecture about the electrical charges of atoms, because let’s face it, I wasn’t paying attention in High School when I took physics and you are not going to pay attention to me now.
So, how can we get rid of static naturally?
Over the years I have tried so many different things, to no avail. Some do work better than others depending on what you need them for.
Here are some natural (and some not so natural) ways to get rid of static
- Avoid dry air by running a humidifier
- Use wool dryer balls in the dryer
- Use a dab of hair conditioner before styling hair
- Avoid wool hats
- Spray hair spray on blankets and towels
- Rub a dryer sheet over hair or clingy clothing
- Use chemically laden commercial products (like Static Guard ®)
You can try so many other ways or you can use just one natural product!
Enter Static Schmatic
Static Schmatic was created by a mother-daughter team with the help of a natural chemist. They were tired, like me, of dealing with embarrassing clingy moments and not being able to find an all-natural solution.
Static Schmatic uses only a handful of natural ingredients, that you most likely have in your own kitchen, making it safe to use on clothes, kids, and pets, and the planet. It is naturally scented and won’t cause build-up.
I put it to work
On my hair
During the dry air of winter and with the constant use of wool scarfs I look like a mad scientist. A quick light spray and my hair had not static at all. For all that static that brushing dry hair creates, worked like magic. And guess what? My son’s unruly curls that get super tangled in the back, although not staticky, a quick spray made brushing super easy.
On my laundry
In my case the worst offenders are my dog’s bedding. I have two dachshunds and in true to their nature they love having blankets to burrow under. They each have a fleece blanket, every time I pull them out of the dryer and I try to pull them apart sparks fly and you better watch out. Even when I use my wool dryer balls it is not enough. A couple sprays and no more static!
I’m so happy I found this product, I plan on having a bottle in my laundry room, carry one with me, and a couple more around the house just for good measure.
I am very impressed with how well this product works, how natural and Eco-friendly it is, and the fact that is a small company from right here in the U.S.This is a “sponsored post.” The company who sponsored it compensated me via a cash payment, gift, or something else of value to write it.
