How Do You Eliminate Static Electricity From Furniture?

Everytime I sit down on my sofa, I feel static cling. It will even give me a little bit of a shock. :eek: I don't know what to do to get rid of it. I run an air humidifier in the living room.

One of my adult daughters suggested I rub the furniture with a fabric softener sheet. I have done that on two separate occasions, but it doesn't last very long.

Do any of you have this problem? If so, how do you get rid of static electricity on furniture? :confused:

Much obliged! :)

I do not have a problem with furnature but do with my clothes-hair goes flat which I hate. I am always getting a shock when I close my car door. Had the electric works checked and it is fine.

Thanks for both replies! :)

shygirl...I thought of buying some febreeze the other day, but didn't get it. Don't know why. I'll get some tomorrow because I'm tired of being shocked everytime I sit on my own furniture. :D

Thanks again! :)

Febreeze or a product called Static Guard.

We've had Static Guard around sine I can't tell you when and it always works.

Dave, who reminds you that berber carpet can be a SHOCKING expeirence!

Static Guard spray. It is usually in the laundry section. You can spray it on furniture, and your hair brush. Works well.

I hate that too, I don't have a problem in my house but when I get out of my car and touch the metal carts at the supermarket, yeowie!!!! I will get some of that static guard, sounds like a good idea. The funny thing is my pomeranian doggie runs back and forth across the sofa and his long fur stands up straight, he is such a sight to see :chuckle

hmmm, I don't have that problem... probably because I rarely clean... maybe you should let your house get dirty :roll

I took Downey and added a little to an empty spray bottle and made the rest water and sprayed a very light mist everywhere before i leave the house. By the time i'm back, it's dry, and no static.

Ah yes, for some reason it seems my berber is worse than anything else....

Febreeze works great plus I run a cool air humidifier. I get shocked so bad sometimes I can see the blue arch! OUCH:eek:

Correct. Essentially, the issue is a lack of moisture in the home. So kick up the humidity.

Have heard the other other ideas mentioned also help to an extent.
