Zip The Zap

We are in the midst of blanket wearing season and if static is making your horse a little uneasy every time you take off and put on his blanket, try this super easy trick to zip the zap. Fill an empty, clean spray bottle 1/3 full with liquid fabric softener and then fill the rest of the bottle with water, shake to mix. Then spritz the mixture liberally on the outside and inside of the blanket when you take it off your horse as well as before using it for the first time after it is washed. Your horse’s blanket will smell delightful and be static free.

If you are worried about allergies you can use a “free, clear” version of fabric softener.

On a personal note (or if you are not a horse person) and are fighting static every time you brush your hair, try spritzing your hair brush with hairspray before brushing. It does the trick!
