When I were my capilenes under my nylon pants I get ridiculous static action. This tip was on an email my grandma sent me yesterday:
Reducing Static Cling
Pin a small safety pin to the seam of your slip and you will
not have a clingy skirt or dress. Same thing works with
slacks that cling when wearing panty hose. Place pin in seam
of slacks and — ta da! — static is gone.
Safety pins to the rescue again!Jan 24, 2008 at 10:59 pm #1417630Linsey BuddenMember
Interesting. Safety pins always have a place on my pack as I like to secure drying socks and bandannas with them. Also I've used them to secure MYOG hipbelt pouches that wouldn't stay put.Jan 25, 2008 at 1:26 am #1417636Franco DarioliSpectator

I absolutely get a kick out of tips like that, not that it is relevant to me, but I just love simple solutions of this type. Of course we should all have at least a couple of safety pins in our repair/safety kit anyway.
