5. The sheets have a great prevalence for static cling and they also tend to attract lint, dust as well as hair more readily than other sheets. Microfiber sheets are a good conductor of static electricity. This is because they can store electrons that attract and repel other fibers like clothing and hair. Static is a big problem in the drier, colder winter months. The sheets are therefore very clingy and also have a tendency to grip dirt, dusts, as well as other debris. The static can get annoying when getting under and out of your sheets.
