Another tip is to shake the container (assuming your lye is in a hard plastic bottle) well before measuring. The shaking reduces the static charge as well as helps break up any clumps. Someone shared that tip awhile back and it works pretty well to reduce the static. It might not work as well as the dryer sheet, but for someone who doesn't use dryer sheets, like me, it's better than nothing.
Another alternative to dryer sheet is to use a damp (not drippy, just damp) cloth to wipe the outside of the jar and the top surfaces of your scale. Wait a bit for the surfaces to just become dry, then open the lye container and weigh. The slight bit of extra humidity from the water also helps to reduce static -- if you pay attention, you will see static problems only in heated dry winter air or in dry climates, not when the air is humid.
From my days working in a chem lab -- Never shake a container just holding onto the lid; get a good grip on the container itself. Shake with the lid facing away from your face and away from other people. Always put a finger over the lid when you shake as insurance against the lid popping off or loosening -- like this --
