Static & Stuck Granules

I'm just starting out reloading, and I'm having some trouble with granules of powder sticking in my scale pan and funnel due to static electricity. Anyone out there do anything to battle the static besides just dealing with, and banging the granules out or brushing them?

I use fabric softner sheets. Seems to help a lot.

What do you do with them? Rub the funnel and pan down?

Yep just wipe out the funnel and pan. Works great. I have dryer sheets all over my reloading area... people think I'm weird when they come over to load shells... lol
