git ignore folder and subfolders - How do I configure git to ignore some files locally?

gitignore not working / git / ignore / gitignore

Can I ignore files locally without polluting the global git config for everyone else? I have untracked files that are spam in my git status but I don't want to commit git config changes for every single little random untracked file I have in my local branches.
