Static electricity is annoying and so hard to get rid of out of your clothes. Lucky for you, there are ways that you can prevent and eliminate static electricity. Here is how.
Winter time can make it feel like a giant ball of static electricity, clothes made of nylon becomes charged causing skirts, blouses to twist up and ride up. Whenever, you take off your coat, you could feel the static electricity, pricks and hear the static crackle.
One of the easiest ways to prevent static 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 up your clothes.
You can also take control of static by drying synthetic and cotton fabric separately. With synthetic fabrics, you might want to consider not using the dryer at all. If you let your synthetic clothes air dry, they will greatly reduce, if not completely eliminate static electricity.
Another technique to consider is using vinegar in your wash cycles. I know it's kind of gross, but vinegar acts as a natural fabric softener and can also help ward off static. However, this alternative is a big smelly and if you use it with bleach, you are on risk of inhaling toxic fumes. So use your noggin when using vinegar, okay.
By following these simple tips, not drying your clothes all the way, separating your cotton and synthetic fibers and even using smelly vinegar, you can make winter much less crackly. Be more aware of how you dry your clothes and you will be able to eliminate static forever.
