Do you ever wonder where all those socks go? Somewhere between your laundry hamper, the washing machine and the trip back to your room they have disappeared. We can’t solve the mystery of where those socks go, but we can prevent them going astray. Follow these tips to keep your socks two-by-two.
When a sock is missing in action. Stray socks need to be quarantined until their match can be found. When you find a lone sock, put it in a designated bag. When your clean laundry is ready to be put away, take out any solo socks and see if there are any matches for it in the unmatched sock bag. If you can’t find the match, add the new socks to the bag. If you use a shared laundry room or Laundromat, make sure you take a peek at the lost and found pile each time you are thereZmart If You Can Read This Novelty Funny Saying Socks B073F3P8H5 .
Pin them down. You can use safety pins to keep your matching socks together before throwing them in the laundry hamper. The socks will be washed and dried together, and there won’t be any strays. When washing socks, you can place them in a lingerie bag to keep them from getting lost along the way.
Lost in the shuffle. Often socks get lost when washed with larger items- caught in fitted sheets or in pant legs. Try doing loads of just smaller items-socks, undergarments, wash cloths- to prevent your socks from being hidden in larger things. Try counting the number of pairs of socks you put in the washer and recount when you take them out. You’ll have a better idea where to look for the lost ones, if you know where along the way you lost them. Be sure to repeat the count when you take laundry out of the dryer and when you put it away.
