FASHION WITH TESSA - TIP OF THE DAY



Tomorrow is the first day of winter, and that means if you haven't started already, you'll soon be fighting the static cling battle where a good deal of the day will be spent tugging at your skirts or pant legs. Annoying, right? Not to mention how unsightly and unprofessional you look when your clothes are clinging to your pantyhose, dress socks, or tights.

The trick to keeping the cling from happening in the first place is as simple as a safety pin. Attach a small safety pin to the inside of your skirt lining, slip, or pant hem. The metal acts as an electricity conductor and will prevent the static cling from occurring.

Thank you! I don't wear skirts, but I'm going to try this hoping it'll help with those static shocks when getting out of the car?

It's certainly worth a try, Kath. Let us know if it works.
