It’s about this time of the year when I don’t touch anything. I have my phone in my hands at all times, tapping it on door handles, taxis, my television, all in the hope that it will magically remove that static electrical charge that I hate so much.
Well apparently there are a few more practical things that you can do to avoid that annoying little buzz. We had a look around the web to find some of the best ideas for you to try:
- Because the air is so dry in the winter, running a humidifier in your home will eliminate some the pesky shocks
- Wear natural fibers. Synthetic fabrics are knows to generate more shocks, so make your kids wear cotton and wool clothing
- Moisturize! Dry hands make for more shocks, so be sure to have a tube with you during those cold winter mornings
- There’s a company in Hong Kong that sells a spray for clothing that “irons,” removes germs and prevents static buildup from clothing
If you’re like me, you’ll be stocking up on woolen clothing, humidifiers and moisturizer for those long winter days.
