Tip of the Day: Zap Static

So, imagine you’re walking down the sidewalk thinking you look fantastic, when suddenly, you see your clothes bunching up on you.  Oh no.  You now don’t look so hot.  You don’t have static spray.  What to do?

Dryer Sheet
Carry a dryer sheet on you and rub between fabrics (on socks/stockings and garment)

In a pinch, although this may not last all day, dampen your hands with cold water and rub between fabrics.

  1. It could also mean you are about to get struck by lightning. In which case a dryer sheet and water will not help you.

  2. Static is becoming yet another craphole in my existence. Over the past three years, I’ve become smart enough to ditch buying “mystery fabric” in favor of cotton and other natural materials (Yes, I bought into the commercials. Plus, these fabrics just feel better against the skin and wash a lot easier). The downside to the cotton (besides the ironing) is that it tends to gather static like crazy, especially when I wear the fabric with my crazy-colored tights. I have to be super-vigilant about yanking on the hem of my skirts, lest they bunch up, show my ass and make me look prostitutey.

    I desperately need a static buster, but 1) I don’t use dryer sheets because I don’t trust them and I don’t like the chemicals, and 2) I hate the static sprays for the same reason. Any other ideas? Sigh. It’s hard being me.

  3. Might I suggest carrying a spritz bottle of water in your bag? Perhaps spritzing up your skirt may not be advisable, but it is natural! ha! Seriously, let me do some more research and testing. I am a cotton-chica too, and suffer as well.
