Science lesson: Static cling is caused by two different fabrics rubbing together and the protons and electrons separating, thus creating an imbalance of electrical charges. And it always happens at the exact moment you’re trying to work that silk dress. If you can’t fix it with hairspray, try this genius trick.

What you need: A safety pin

What you do: Pin it to the inside seam of your skirt or pants or blouse--whatever is causing you trouble.

Why it works: The metal helps ground the electrical charge that’s causing your clothing to crinkle. (Basically, it’s a catchall for the currents.)

So? You’ll never accidentally moon your corner coffee shop again.
