Controlling Static Cling During the Winter0

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.
