    Static issues

    I have major static problems, not just static-y hair, but all my clothing is as well and it's resulting in me getting shocked by almost everything I touch!!!

    What can I do???

    Hmm - can't help you with the getting shocked, but you might want to try rubbing a fabric softener sheet lightly on your clothing. Or, rub some lotion into your hands and rub that lightly on your clothing. Obviously you'll want to avoid doing this with dry-clean only clothing.

    It worked for me when I used to wear skirts w/ pantyhose, hope it works for you.

    Buy a can of Static Guard. They sell it with laundry stuff. Works like a charm.

    Yup. Static Guard is your friend. When it's all staticy I spray it on the bottom of my shoes. Works wonders.

    Move to Seattle! I imagine with their rainfall and air moisture, static is not a problem.

    My mom used Static Guard like crazy when I was growing up. It works great!

    Get one of two things going in your home, either 1) A Humidifier or 2) A large saltwater aquarium, both work equally well, one costs more than the other however Okay, seriously, yes, a higher humidity in your home will reduce static electricity.

    We have carpet in our office and a lot of times a client leaves the office and touches the door they get a shock. It's quite funny.

    At the 99 cent store I saw fabric sheets that had the Care Bears on them
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    I have this, too. I think it's my super power, only I haven't learned how to harness it yet.
