I'm having static cling problems with my umbrella production silks. I think they are a silk/nylon mix. Is Static Guard safe to use on them or should I do something else?

Static Guard is what I use. I have not had any problems.

The first thing I would do is get rid of the blend and go to real silks. They collapse tighter and wrinkle less. Then if you wash them with just a drop or two of fabric softner, it will cure the static problems.

Static guard is ok but it can damage the fabric. Use it very, very spareingly.

One of the real tricks to using Static Guard is to spray the magician! He is the one who dragged his shoes on the carpet, wore a wool coat and slid down the curtain getting backstage. Even pure silk is going to get static.

I also use old dryer sheets, you know the ones you find in your pant leg:) When I roll my silks I put used sheets in with them.
Bob, you are correct if you spray yourself you can avoid a lot of the problem.
