Static electricity and silk clothing are not a fun combination. Clothing clinging to your body, your hair standing on end or shocking people when you touch them, are all symptoms of static electricity that everyone would rather avoid. Cold and dry climates have the worst problems with static electricity, which means that you probably have the most trouble during the winter—a season full of festive, silk clothing. Try one or more of the following suggestions to avoid static electricity next time you slip on your favorite silk Bellerose item. - Wear a cotton layer underneath your silk clothing to help eliminate your static electricity and stop clothes clinging to your body. - A grandma's technique that's worth a try: rub your silk clothing with an anti-static dryer sheet and let the static transfer to the dryer sheet. - Wear rubber soled shoes to ground you and prevent electricity build-ups. - Run a metal hanger over your clothes or put a safety pin in your pocket, as this will reduce the electrical charge. Just be careful that the hanger or the safety pin doesn’t damage your clothing!
