I am so sick of getting shocked every time I get up from my chair, get out of my car, open a file cabinet, pick up my pet...this static is the worst it has ever been. I need some relief from it, any suggestions?

But what do i do to get rid of the cats static? I dont think he will let me rub him with bounce and put lotion on his feet. He likes to sleep on polyester/cotton sheets and when we touch him he/us get shocked.

I hate it when my hair is acting up from the static.

It sticks to my face and is so annoying! But it's only this bad in the winter, when it's the least humid and the air is so dry. I have to constantly put a little water on my hairbrush and run it through my hair and that gets rid of it, until it dries again. For some reason, water seems to get rid of static electricity lol

I use the Bounce sheets, tons of lotion, we've tried everything and still have it bad.

Nothing has worked, so guess I just have to live with it until the weather gets warmer. The hair static frizz....lotion your hands and run them through your hair.

Rub the kitty with bounce (or any dryer sheet) too. Don't forget to get the pads of his feet too. He won't like it, but it's better than rubbing him in lotion. (I use the bounce/lotion technique as well).

Static, chapped lips, dry skin... I think the answer is moving to Florida!

No dry air in the tropical state! Any one have a farm and want to swap for one in Minnesota??

I think my little lab puppy is confused... every time I go to pet her I shock her nose!

I take a blanket rub it on my son and we touch fingers to see how big a spark we can get! The dog hates it though! Bounce or any dryer sheets will work for a bit!
