I hate static electricity. HATE. I hate brushing my hair and having my hair pouf up, or taking off my hat and having a big mess standing up on my head. I hate wearing skirts with tights and having the lining suction itself to my legs. I JUST HATE STATIC. HATE.

But there is a superman to my static situation, Static Guard. It comes in a can, and you spray it on whatever is clinging to you, and it will instantly release the static. It is amazing. My mom always had a can in our laundry room when I was growing up, and so I’ve known about said miracle for a long time.

I was recently recommending Static Guard to a friend, and giving her the link when I realized that Static Guard has a web site where you can look up the STATIC-NESS of cities across America. It is updated daily, I kid you not. You too, can check out the static-ness of our fine city, all day, every day. But I have some grave news for you. Today, DC, we are on STATIC ALERT.

This is very bad. Grab your babies, go get some milk and bread from the store, stay home! Don’t do laundry without a dryer sheet! Don’t brush your hair! Don’t get up from a cloth car seat and shut the door. THIS IS SERIOUS! THIS IS…. A STATIC ALERT! AAAH!

Katie moved to DC in 2007, and has since embarked upon a love affair with the city. She’s an education reform advocate and communications professional during the day; at night and on the weekends, she’s an owner here at We Love DC. Katie has high goals to eat herself through the entire city, with only her running shoes to save her from herself. For up-to-the-minute news and reviews (among other musings), follow her on Twitter!
