Cheapskates Anti-static Spray

There is nothing more annoying than clothing that clings and sticks (usually in all the wrong places) when it's not supposed to.  You can buy anti-static sprays to relieve the problem, or you can make your own. It's simple, cheap and takes around 30 seconds to mix and costs approximately 50 cents a batch. I make a batch and pour it into two small spray bottles I recycled. I keep one in my handbag and one in the bathroom, ready to use when needed.

Anti-Static Spray
1/4 cup liquid fabric softener (ready to use, not the concentrate)
1/4 cup ammonia (clear, not cloudy)
2 cups cool water

Mix well and store in a spray bottle.  To use, lightly spritz clothing with the spray.


  1. Why do you add ammonia? Wouldn't this smell awful? Just wondering.

    1. No, it doesn't smell, it is diluted 9:1 and there is fragrance in the fabric softener. Ammonia acts as an emollient with the fabric softener to stop it from clagging in the bottle and to spray lightly and effectively.
