Preventing winter static...

Wow...breaking off the lag, my writer's block. I am happy to be back in blogging ; )

Winter is synonymous to cold. And what do we have here? Heehah...tingling static problems! I always get this inevitable static shock. Touching the door knob, and car door too. Whoah, it always sends me into a sudden jerk.

Much as I don't mean to cover myself from head to foot, whoah...can't help it 'coz it's frigging cold out here. Before getting up awhile ago, was groping in the dark, (still now) because I didn't want to offend much so irritate Aya lest she get startled from the glares of the lights from turning it on and off. Going back, inside my thick wool cover, because it's still dark, I heard some soft spark sounds and from the tips of my fingers I saw some nice sparks. That's cute. My fingers are creating sparks from static discharges. The reason why I become interested to post about the subject because this stuff is Adam to me. We don't experience this...(can we call this phenomenon?) back home in Pinas.

I just do wonder how it would be if some inventions to prevent this didn't happen. How it would be like in the gas station? Am sure it can create fires and explosions where flammable agents such as gasoline vapour occurs. Imagine in coffee shops where if one may happen to have this sudden jerk from static while handling a fresh brewed coffee to a customer? Get what I mean? So kudos to those experts and specialist on giving those very important advice on this matter.

One of the many products to help eliminate this shock is, and I bought one for anti-static wristband.

I have no knowledge and authority to explain farther, except that I experience these tingling pain a lot more times already so here are some I copy pasted to help you know some of the matter.

static shock


Our expert in static electricity in the electronics industry suggests trying the following to get rid of static electricity problems in your home or office:
1) Increase the humidity in your house and workplace. Air is much drier in the winter, which increases the frequency and severity of shocks. Use a humidifier.
2) Change clothes - switch to natural fibers, since synthetics pick up more of a static charge.
3) Change shoes - there are special conductive shoes in a variety of styles. They are made for people working in the electronics industry. You will need to find a store or catalogue that sells or can order them for you. (Search online for "esd shoes")
4) If your skin is very dry - try an anti-static hand lotion (also available for the electronics industry.)
