Keep socks from going missing

Doing the laundry is unavoidable for most of us and while things should often be a standard routine every so often a sock or two will decide to sneak off into the abyss never to be seen again. We've all been through it, playing detective Sherlock on a search for the missing sock, it can be so annoying. While some people think, no big deal - it is just a sock. Others will search high and low and even go as far as losing sleep trying to find the missing one in order lovely match their favourite pair of sock.

Sometimes you'll strike it lucky and that reunion can feel so food, while other times that long lost sock will never return. Whle there is not much we can do to help you find your missing socks, we can help you prevent it. Prevention is better than the cure, right?

7 Sure Ways to Never lose your socks again

  1. Pin socks together - Then you don't have to fold them. They are already together. You only take the pin off your socks long enough to wear them. And, even then you can leave the pin in one of the socks so as not to lose the pin. (My grandmother used to do this and she never lost her socks.)
  2. Use a laundry washing bag and put socks in there. Like this mesh laundry bag.
  3. Just like having a load of laundry for only your unmentionables. Have a load of nothing else, but socks.
  4. Match socks as soon as you fold that load of laundry. This is by far the easiest thing to do. And, if you have young children it is a great activity for them to do.
  5. Or, simply don't wear them and opt for flip flops more often.
  6. Hand wash your socks that way you can always keep track of the little buggers.
  7. Take apart that old washing machine and find out what's been hiding between the drum. This is in case of extreme measures only and we do not recommend it get this drastic. 

When going up against the laundry cycle you have to realise that there will be casualties along the way. Use these tips to avoid wasting time or annoying yourself searching for misplaced socks or having to buy new pairs. It may not be a costly item but these sock losses add up over time if you're not careful and those snazzy pair you forked out for are often the ones that go missing first.

So stay safe out there and we hope you keep your socks for as long as your feet start ripping through them.
