Really?  I never seem to get static electricity in the winter.  I actually can’t remember the last time I was shocked.  Sorry I can’t help remedy the problem!

I’ve been having such a problem with static electricity!  I keep shocking myself at work, and last night my dog nosed me and we shocked eachother lol.  The only suggestion I have(and it might not be the case for you) is to not shuffle your feet so much.  I shuffle around and it makes it worse, so I try to pick my feet up when I walk(I should anyways..).  Anyways, goodluck!

I don’t have any suggestions. Every time I kiss Fiance, the sparks fly. ๐Ÿ™‚ And the cats really don’t appreciate it much that they get shocked every time I touch them. It’s just a winter thing…I’m trying to patiently wait for spring.

I was going to say set bowls of water out; they perform the same function as a humidifier, only more slowly and way cheaper ๐Ÿ™‚

@ddw: just regular bowls of water? Not warm water or anything?? Maybe I should do this!

@PitBulLover: nope, just plain ol’ tap water. It’ll evaporate. The more you put out, the less dry your air will be. Obviously refill them as they evaporate (and wash the bowl every couple days, haha).

We were shocking each other a lot, too! haha 

We use a humidifier. Once we started using it a few weeks ago, our static levels in our house have diminished. It was too dry in our house, too! I definitely recommend using one. They aren’t super expensive and work great. ๐Ÿ™‚

If you have a crockpot, you can fill it with water and turn it on low and it’ll work like a humidifier ๐Ÿ™‚

@In the media: The dryer sheets work, but only short term. Adding water to the air is your best bet for a long term solution – is a humidifier an option for you?
