Those who are full of hot air can also blow gently and will generate
enough humidity to reduce the static. J:>)

Unfortunately, this sounds like static electricity.
Leica suggests spraying anti-static spray in the chamber (!).  You could
also ground the metal in the chamber using metal wire touching something
metal outside the chamber (the Russian post-doc solution, very clever).
We keep 100% EtOH in a small container (about 100 ml) in the back of the
chamber to reduce static, which I learned from a long ago histonet post,
so I have no idea why it works.
Otherwise, buy an anti-static brush, which I hear exists, but have never
