    They really are great aren't they! I've been using them for years as I don't like to use fabric sheets and softener is just a PIA. (they do smell good tho!)

    I have Static Guard near me at all times! My hair gets static-y easily and I can't stand it. I spray it on my brush. So, at home, in my bag, in the desk drawer at work. It works!

    When she asked me--I remembered Static Guard, but I knew exactly where to go to get more ideas. :-D

    Mamabear--I had a suitemate in college who once applied Downy liquid fabric softener) to her hair...as the result of misunderstanding that the fabric softener recommended was intended to be in the form of a dryer sheet! I can't remember what event we attended, but she didn't have time to wash her hair, so it was very flat but smelled nice!

    I have heard, but not tried this, pin a safety pin to an inside seam. It is suppose to take the static right out of your outfit!

    A safety pin in the hem of a garment will control static in the fabric.
