question of the day

why do the makers of static guard put it in a metal can? just sayin'....

update:

felt i should clarify- static guard eliminates static electricity and static cling chemically some how. i had a couple of cans left from god knows when- and the new house is dry, dry, dry coupled with wall to wall carpet. i have 2 humidifiers in my bedroom right now that help- and one downstairs where i have the most problem. thinking i might put 2 downstairs instead. i don't use fabric softener or dryer sheets anymore- and that's part of the issue. i am going to start tumbling dry and air drying completely and that too will help the issue.

the bigger issue for me is that anything i touch- i get a shock. now, static guard comes in a metal can. and i know why :) it sprays easier but that doesn't help me if i forget to deshockify myself before picking up the can. that's all.

Food for thought, but, imagine the mess it would make being in a plastic pump spray...half the time the pump sprayer doesn't work, and it would spray out big drops here and there that might stain your garments. The aerosol spray works best for this product. They can make them without being propelled with CFCs. Now, if they could just recycle those cans... ;)

static guard is a spray you use to spray your clothes, etc. and it releases static cling. i don't use fabric softener- and i didn't buy more i had the static guard on hand- so i get static electricity buildup something fierce. and my basement is surprisingly dry- and i have wall to wall carpets and slippers with rubber soles. i wear a set of keys around my neck to touch things first.

I'm with Dusty! I had to think about it before I realized what it is. I guess I just never get static in my blue jeans. But I do hate the way a polyester crew neck shirt sticks to you and rides up yer back from the charge. Better get some static guard, eh?
