First, the static string works by
a principle called "passive ionization."
This means when the thousands of conductive fibers in the string
on your wrist comes close to earth or ground like the grocery shelves,
ions will flow off the string reducing your voltage and therefore
reducing shocks. In other words, the bracelet allows the voltage
on you to be gently removed as your reach toward the shelves not
in a painful spark.
To Correctly use the Static Friendship
Bracelet, Please Follow These simple instructions:
1. Tie the static friendship bracelet
to the wrist of the arm that you will be using to reach for groceries.
This step will ensure that the ions are allowed to flow from you
to the shelves and groceries ensuring you and they will be near
the same voltage before you touch.
2. Use the arm that doesn't have the
static friendship bracelet to push the shopping cart.
