Static electricity on clothes: how to get rid of it?

To get rid of static electricity, you still need to know what it is! This phenomenon occurs when an electrostatic charge builds up in a tissue. In fact, the electric charge is neutral: in the case of friction between certain materials, electrons can detach from certain atoms to join new ones. It is this change in the electrical charge of matter that we call static electricity!

Some tips for removing static electricity from your clothes, but also from your Angarde slippers:

In fact, static electricity appears more often on outfits with dry fibers. Dampen your clothes after drying to avoid it! You can use a water spray, a damp washcloth or a steam iron to get rid of these electrical charges.

Natural products against static electricity: baking soda and white vinegar for clothes

How to remove static electricity from clothes? This is a question that many people ask, and the answer given by Angarde is this: use natural products!

Baking soda is very effective in protecting your clothes from agglomeration of electrical charges. Static electricity can arise from the successive friction of your clothes in the washing machine drum, or are linked to the materials they are made of. To remedy this, if your clothing is put in the washing machine, pour 50 ml of baking soda on your clothes once they have been placed in the washing machine. All you have to do is launch it, and that's it! For our slippers , sprinkle baking soda on the sole and upper. Leave it on for a few minutes.

White vinegar is another healthy and natural solution to get rid of static electricity on clothes. All you need to do is lightly soak a cloth with white vinegar and add it to your washing machine, with your other clothes. There should be no more static electricity, both for your synthetic clothing and for others!

Separate synthetic and natural clothes in the dryer

If your clothing is going in the dryer, these tips are for you:

Mixing fabrics can increase the chances of static electricity building up. If you have the option to separate your natural and synthetic clothing, do it!

Otherwise, you can also use wool dryer balls. Place a scoop or two in your washing machine and nothing more! Dryer balls are very effective in preventing electrons from clumping between your clothes.

Moisturizing cream, another tip against static electricity

Dry skin accumulates more static electricity than damp or hydrated skin. In fact, do not hesitate to apply a lotion or moisturizing cream to your hands, and more particularly to the rubbing areas, before taking care of your laundry.

In this way, you will be able to eradicate the static electricity accumulated on the fabrics when hanging your laundry, ironing it or folding it. And this little tip also applies to slippers!
