    Touch your hands to some metallic object for a few moments, the static electricity will be removed.

    Touching a grounded metal object once in a while helps to remove static electricity generated in the body.

    If u want something professional then there are some professional devices available that control static electricity using alpha-emitting devices containing Polonium.

    I read that touching a metallic tap is good. Is it really?

    You can touch a metalic object..but if the charge built on your hand is good enough then you might as well experiance a very small shock kind of feeling and you might as well see sparks between your hand and that object!!

    You would never know that there's static on your body unless it is discharged after being in contact with another conductive or semiconductive material.
