We have experienced more static cling in the last few months living in Saskatchewan than we every have before. The air is so very dry here. I don’t often use the dryer but I thought maybe it would help as I have dryer balls. Instead it just created a fire works show in my dryer as I took clothing out.
The static was so bad that my hair either stood straight out from my head or was stuck to my face and clothing. Pants would stick to my legs as I walked, and for some reason it seemed like it was worse for me, at first anyway. But I didn’t want to use fabric sheets because of our cloth diapers. So the hunt started.
One day while at our local Dollarama we came across dryer balls that are suppose to reduce static cling, two in a package.
These made no difference in the static in our house.
Then one Pinterest one day I saw a photo of a tin foil ball saying it would help reduce static. What did we have to lose other than a couple pieces of tin foil so I tried it out, balling up a couple pieces of tin foil while Hubby laughed.
I tossed a couple of these in, long with the rest of my dryer balls, a bunch of clothes including a pair of pajamas that are usually so bad I can’t where.
It worked! I honestly didn’t think it would. There was a little zabbing static action when I first took them out but that was it.
Even just reducing some the static is a plus though. Hopefully with spring the static will go away, and hopefully by next fall/winter I’ll have figured out a permanent solution.
