Static Guard

Hi there,

Does anyone know if you can get static guard (such that your skirt doesn't stick to your stockings) in Switzerland.

If so, what is it called and where can I find it.

Thanks for your help.

Re: Static Guard

It's the dryness - I just spray water or a mixture of water with a little bit of fabric softener, or even spray-on conditioner...

The static doesn't happen in humidity...

Doesn't last long, though...if I was working and needing to solve the problem a few times a day, then I'd put a small atomiser or spray bottle (I have a 'rosewater freshener' - spritzer product) that'd do the trick...in my handbag...

If you have a product, and can copy me the ingredients, I can tell you how to make it at home (used to work in a development lab)...

Re: Static Guard

Hairspray also works well. Just spray it on your stockings - a light mist - and you'll be static-free
