There are many techniques to help reduce static cling during the dry days of winter. Try one of the tips below and keep your clothing static-free all winter-long.
Gently rub a dryer sheet on the inside of a garment.
A light spritz of hairspray can help tame the static.
For a temporary fix, rub your hosiery with damp hands.
Make sure your legs are well moisturized, especially when wearing hosiery.
Try fastening a safety pin discreetly inside a hem to minimize static buildup.
Add ½ cup of vinegar to your machine wash – vinegar acts as a natural fabric softener.
Remove your clothes from the dryer before they are fully dry – any bit of moisture helps!
Finally, if all else fails, pick up a can of Static Guard, a fabric-friendly aerosol product available at most supermarkets that comes in a handy purse sized bottle.
