    try misting it with some water

    I remember years ago when we would rub our feet across the carpet in the school library and built up a static charge and find a fellow student to shock. The librarian would take out a spray bottle with water and mist the carpet to stop our fun.

    Wash it, by hand or gentle cycle.
