RE: [Histonet] Static Cling

From:"Weems, Joyce"

Do you have a faucet of something near by that you can run a ground wire to? You can use thin wire attached to the microtome and twist it around the faucet or air or gas connect. I have no idea where I heard this - may be farm logic (I grew up a farmer), but I used to do it and it worked! And I just read in a household hint column that attaching a safety pin to a seam would eliminate static cling in clothing. Good luck. There's nothing much more aggrevating than that problem! j -----Original Message-----From: [] On Behalf Of Jennifer JohnsonSent: Sunday, February 17, 2008 5:06 PMTo: histonet@lists.utsouthwestern.eduSubject: [Histonet] Static ClingPlease offer any suggestions that you have for controlling static cling.  My co-worker is cursed with the worst case of static I have ever seen.  We have a static-free chair mat, we run two humidifiers, she lotions her hands very well, uses dryer sheets in with her scrubs, dips her blocks in a dishwasing liquid/water solution before cutting (to break the surface tension) and still the sections stick to her hands.  She used a whole can of "static guard" last week, to no avail.  Please HELP, she is threatening to lock the door and cut in a thong and wet T-shirt!!!!!!!!!!  _________________________________________________________________Climb to the top of the charts! Play the word scramble challenge with star power. mailing listHistonet@lists.utsouthwestern.edu Notice ** The information contained in this message may be privileged and is confidential information intended for the use of the addressee listed above.
