Winter time can make you feel like a giant ball of static electricity. Clothes made with nylon become charged, causing skirts and blouses to twist and ride up. Whenever you take off your coat you can feel the static electricity pricks and hear the static crackle. This effect sometimes extends into your hair so you end up looking super hot with your hair extending into all directions. In your crazed static electricity frustration you probably finding yourself asking "Is there a way to stop of the static?!" The answer is yes, yes there is a way to stop the static.
One of the easiest ways to prevent static to is to not completely dry your clothes. Dry them partially and then let them line dry. If you don't have a clothesline you can invest in a drying rack or use hangers to hang your clothes up to dry. You can also take control of static by drying synthetic and cotton fabrics separately. With synthetic fabrics you might want to consider not using the dryer at all; if you let your synthetic clothes air dry you'll greatly reduce, if not eliminate, static electricity.
Another technique to consider is using vinegar in your wash cycles. Vinegar acts as a natural fabric softener and could also help ward off static. However this alternative is a bit smelly and if you use it with bleach, you risk the inhalation of toxic fumes.
Static is not fun and so that's why you just take control of the static situation. By following these simple tips—not drying your clothes all the way, separating your cotton and synthetic fabrics, and even using smelly vinegar—you can make winter much less crackly. Be more aware of how you dry your clothes and you'll be able to eliminate static forever!
