To eliminate static cling, dry all clothes with dryer sheets or balls, then use a metal coat hanger or wire to counteract the electric charge in the clothing. Static cling occurs when friction between fabrics generates electricity.
Static clean is most common in dry environments. Increasing humidity levels can make it less likely to occur.
- Prevent static cling in the dryer
- Eliminate static cling with metal
The easiest way to prevent static cling is to use dryer balls or dryer sheets in the clothes dryer. This prevents static electricity from developing during the drying process.
When static cling becomes a problem with clothing while it is worn, slide a metal wire between the body and the clothing to neutralize the electricity.
