I have 7 32x38 photo prints to get out before Christmas. I am having a problem with dust and static. I am using washed glass and also a static wisk but still a struggle. Did I see something about a chamois method on this site, if so how do you do it. Also any other ideas would be great. Air will just blow it around right. No I do not have an Kinetronics Ionizing gun. Yes its panic time!

ctc,
Don't panic. They're do-able.
It's the photos that are staticky, yes? I'd brush them (slowly and gently) with the static brush. Brush the glass with the regular brush and lay the glass on it.
Dust seal the whole package. That is, run a piece of 3M 810 tape along the edge of the glass overlapping it by about 1/8" and roll the rest around to the back.
Fit as usual. No new dusties will migrate in with it taped like that.
Just my suggestion.

As Rebecca suggested, moisture kills static. Washing the glazing with a damp chamois does take
the charge off of it and that charge will not come
back until someone runs a dry cloth, brush, or
paper across its surface.

If you have forced air heat with little ventilation that dust just floats and floats.
Check and change your air filter often.
