Fabric softener

A spray bottle with dilute fabric softener ("Downey") works wonders.

In real life you can get flooring materials - carpet and tile - that's conductive. If you're getting offices refurbished then that's a great alternative to explore but if you're still stuck with the lighning a la "Office Space" then the spray works well -- you don't need to soak things, just a fine mist will work for days.
