    I know it sounds really weird, but since I have been doing this diet i find that man made clothes cling to me with static. I can't touch anything metal without getting a bit of a shock :confused::confused::confused:. Is it just me or is there something else going on? If anyone can help I'd be grateful. (it's things like the lining of skirts or nighties that are becoming static)

    Yes, I do all the time, I have noticed it has got worse recently but hadn't connected it to CD! Maybe it's the weather/atmospheric pressure!

    Definitely something to do with the atmosphere or something...my fiance keeps giving the cats static shocks...

    And I went to comfort him when his motorbike fell over the over day and zapped his face quite badly!

    Jumpers are the worst, every time I pull one over my head I look like I've been on a van de graph machine

    I've been told if you rinse your clothes in white vinegar it eliminates the static (put it in the softener drawer in your machine). I've tried the vinegar as a softener for towels and it doesn't smell, honest!
