In the 70s was there more hair static and staticy clothes?
Especially in the winter, I remember lots of static hair in school. Was Bounce not available then? Maybe it was the polyester in our clothes?
Yes, and it explained the concept of a "creme rinse" for your (longer) hair. Helped fight the static.
I remember Bounce sheets used to be sliced up like a plantation shutter.
Bounce caused contact dermatitis in me. Liquid Downy is the way to go.
Also, P&G has removed the sensitizers from the scents used in Tide and Downy.
Yep,and more dandruff, more perspiration stains on clothing under the arms, more body hair peeking out around the edges of bikinis, and more rings around the collar.
And the smell of feet! And red, chapped lips and noses!
Yeah, there was more dandruff back then. Shampoos in those days were pretty harsh, and didn't have all the oils and conditioners that modern-day shampoos have.
It's been scientifically proven that Bell Bottoms cause static.
SO where did the Static go? I haven't had static in years???
Prolonged use of those damn dryers sheets caused my dryer to catch fire a while back.
Thank goodness my laundry room is off my kitchen where I was making breakfast.
If you use them, please wash your lint trap often to remove whatever flammable shit those sheets are made with.
As for me, I stopped buying them. Now I use white vinegar on the rinse water.
Does a better job removing soap residue and also helps with static cling because it softens the fabric. And no, the vinegar smell doesn't stay in the washed items.
Who doesn't clean their lint tray?
It was the polyester, which is a fabric made from petroleum byproducts. So of course it conducted electricity more strongly, hence the static.
There was all that wall to wall plush carpeting back then too.
and shag carpeting
If you have static, it means you're too stupid to get a humidifier.
Dry air facilitates static, and cold weather facilitates dry air. Perhaps it is because winters are not as cold?
Amyls increased static cling. So I would take my shirt off. I can't remember if I passed my shirt or the brown bottle. In fact, all I remember is static, kind of.
