I have a question. How do I prevent the dress sticking to my hosiery? I live in Malaysia and I don’t think static is the issue here. Would appreciate some ideas because I’ve got a fabulous dress that I want to wear with a semi-opaque hose. Thanks! Michelle
Static cling occurs when each garment has an opposite charge (like magnets – positive charges attract negative charges) and what happens is that your dress sticks to your stockings.
Some ways to get rid of it include:
Static Spray – you spray this onto your clothes to eliminate the charge
Fabric Softener – add this to you wash, it can help to eliminate the charge
White Vinegar – add 1/4 cup to your rinse cycle
Air dry rather than tumble dry clothes (which creates the charge by rubbing the clothes over and over each other) – have you noticed that when you pull your clothes out of the dryer they crackle and stick together?
