Static electricity is annoying in any situation. Little electric shocks are startling and become a nuisance especially when they happen every time you exit your car. As your clothes rub against the cloth car seat when stepping out of the car, they rub the fabric creating static electricity, resulting in tiny shocks to your body. Armed with a few products, you can eliminate or significantly reduce the amount of static in your car.

  1. 1

    Rub dryer sheets over the seats, floor and floor mats of the car. Dryer sheets remove static electricity inside the car much like they do for clothes in the dryer.

  2. 2

    Spray an anti-static spray over the seats and floors of the car. Open car doors when spraying to lessen the fumes inside the car.

  3. 3

    Mist the inside of the car lightly with a spray-mist bottle filled with water. Static electricity develops in dry atmospheres. Creating a moist environment should reduce static inside the car.

Tips and warnings

  • You may need to use the dryer sheets, anti-static spray or mist bottle several times a week to keep static electricity at bay. Humid months may not contribute to static electricity as much as dry winter months.
