If you ever wonder how two socks go in the wash and only one comes out, you are not alone. Your washer and dryer are continuously getting a bad rap and reputation for eating socks. The key to hanging on to your socks- as well as their matches- is to keep the pair together throughout the laundry process.
Some ways to keep your socks together in the laundry are:
Roll ’em Up
Lay your pair of socks flat and roll them up, folding the cuff down over the pair.
Pin ’em Together
Use metal safety pins or wooden clothespins to secure your pair of socks together in the laundry.
Clip ’em Tight
Invest in some heavy-duty binder clips at a stationary or office-supply store and keep socks together in the wash.
Wash ’em Separately
Start a separate hamper and laundry routine for washing socks. Encourage others to put their socks in a special basket, and launder as you normally would. Fold and evaluate immediately to determine if all the socks made it through!
Toss ’em in a Bag
Use a mesh bag intended for laundering delicates to keep socks together while they wash.
Keep your socks together and never lose another one! Use these tips to keep socks paired-up and to have the same number going in the laundry as you do coming out.
