To keep from getting a static shock from your car whenever you exit, put a dryer sheet in your pocket. It negates the electric shock. Just keep one in your favorite jacket pocket during the "dry air" months. No more "zings" to your flesh!

How can I remove static from cloth car seats? I get zapped every time I get out and close the door.

rub a dryer sheet all over the seats. you could also leave some sheets in the car. rub it on the ceiling to any where you touch rub the sheet. (12/18/2006)
Get a spray can of Static Guard that will eliminate static Electricity and lightly spray your car seat. It is made for spraying on fabrics. You could try spraying a little in a place that won't show, just to be sure it won't leave any stain. But I have never had a problem with staining, and have used it for years.
Rub the seat with a wire coat hanger before you get into the car. (12/19/2006)

I used the mizter antistatic strap. Works like a charm.
What I do so I do not get that shock is to wrap my hand around the door, touching most of my fingers on the outside, metal while I get out. Works for me.
