“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, :)”
