    My daughter wanted me to ask all of you. :D

    She wants to wear more skirts this year at college, but hates slips. She'd wear leggings or tights with them. Any solutions?

    Rub your tights with a bounce dryer sheet before leaving the house and throw one in you purse for a reapply if static builds up during the day.

    We used liquid fabric softener which seemed to work better than the sheets :D:D:D

    use some hand lotion and then rub the excess on the tights or leggings. works great for me.

    Carry a small can of static guard, it also works on fly away hair.

    I use a bit of hair conditioner dabbed into my hands. That also works on staticy hair!

    I just don't wear the darn things. :-) I think there used to be an anti-static cling spray stuff at one time? Is it still on the market?

    Tell her to put tennis balls in the dryer. I know that sounds strange but it really does take the static out of clothing. I have a flannel jacket that always had a bad static problem but sense i have been using tennis balls I don't have that problem any more.

    Before I wore pants, I would live in dresses and skirts and always had a can of hair spray - it did the trick!
