Get Rid of Static Cling

Static Electricity Solution

One easy way to remove static cling is to run the long part of a wire hanger over the garment. If you’ve suffered any skirt-stuck-to-pantyhose embarrassment, run the hanger between your skirt and the pantyhose. 

Lotion for Static Cling

Another cure for static cling? Lotion. Rub just a dab on your legs and the static will be gone! It even works if you’re wearing pantyhose. Just rub the lotion right on the pantyhose to keep static cling away all night long.

Great Use for Old Batteries

Slinky skirt grabbing your pantyhose and won’t let go? Solve this annoyance with an unlikely household hero: a battery! Just rub the positive end of a battery over your skirt and hose. (If this happens to you a lot, you can just keep a AAA battery in your purse!) The battery releases positively charged ions that neutralize the negative ones that cause static cling. Bada-bing, no more static cling!

Get Rid of Static Before You Leave the House

The next time your skirt or slip stick to your pantyhose due to static electricity, try this tip. Just spritz a little hair spray on your nylons and they’ll not only be free of static, they’ll be less likely to run.
