Glitter. Who invented this stuff?

One of the downfalls of having 2 grand daughters living with you is something called glitter.
Having boys, I hadn't had to deal with this stuff before.
This stuff gets everywhere. 
In the carpet, all over the couch, it's everywhere. 
Pretty bad when you go to work and one of the guys asks what on your coat and you sigh and say, "glitter". 
And then you have to explain that the grand daughters love glitter.

This stuff is awful, but the girls love it.
I can't win. LOL!

    Static electricity makes the devil dust stick to anything. A few years ago I used some glitter on some art I was making. 6 months later I still had it all over my studio and in our house.

    If grounding works against static electricity is there a practical way of using it to loosen/remove said glitter?

    Just wondering.....   :#

    It's the worst, I love my garage and spend a ton of time in it, however I love the inside of my house more.  All glitter projects made at school stay in the garage, all glitter projects made at home are done so in the garage and stay there.  Some still migrates into the house, but not nearly as bad.

    Keyence ionizer.  Oh wait, you said practical...

    Keyence ionizers remove static. We use them at work, not practical for home

    I open all Christmas cards over the trash and inspect for the offending stuff.  If it's there, they don't come out of the envelope and the sender gets put on the naughty list.

    VBS at church is the worst.  When I was in grad school, I used to set-up chairs for a large church every Saturday.  Their auditorium doubled as a gym for a preschool during the week, so it was a regular gig setting up 850-900 chairs.  I did a dry mop and wet mopped small spots.  There was glitter there from the first VBS after it was built according to the guy who came before me.  It was stuck in a seam in the flooring.  But it seemed to multiply.  Each week, the spread continued. That stuff has dark magical powers or something.

    I like Oliva and Quesada (including Regius) a lot.  I will smoke anything, though.

    I decided decades ago that I was not good breeding stock, so no kids. Besides, I am allergic to them. 
    Well those things didn't stop the rest of us.  C'mon. ;) 

    I keep urging my son to reproduce.  Instead he rotates to a new girlfriend every two years.  Grandkids would be great, as long as I don't end up in one of those situations where you can't send them home at the end of the day.  And, I had 3 sisters, so I'm aware of the persistent evils of glitter.  Herpes indeed!
