Static usually occurs in dry conditions (e.g. air-conditioned rooms). This happens when two different materials come in contact with each other and due to the exchange of electrons, static electricity is created.
Here are some ways to prevent static:
- Wet your hands and then lightly run them over the garment. This desensitizes the static electricity, allowing the dress to fall normally.
- Apply body lotion to skin. The water particles in the moisturizer will help eliminate static cling.
- Apply baby powder. The powder creates a barrier and removes electric charge.
