RE: staticky A4?

That happens in our office here in the winter--Very bad for the computer equipment.)  A coworker recommended a half capful of liquid fabric softener like Downy mixed in a large spray bottle of water.  It can be lightly sprayed (in 'mist' mode) on carpets and cloth seats, and usually keeps the zaps away for a couple of weeks.  In such light concentration, it doesn't seem to make anything sticky, and you can choose the aroma you prefer or unscented.
