Do you often find yourself searching for a sock and end up getting late for work? Well, so do many others and it not just wastes your time but is also very frustrating. Citrusox brings you some clever tips to end the mystery of disappearing socks and to make sure you don’t miss another sole mate.
1) Tie them before washing
Some pairs don’t even make it to the washing machine together. The first tip to build a long lasting relationship between your pair of socks is to tie them as soon as you take them off and put them in the wash basket.
2) Use a washing bag
The invention of a washing bag has been a great relief. Depending on the size of your washing bag simply put all the socks you want to wash and put it in the machine. This will not only extend the life of your socks but will also keep them together.
3) Dry them together
The next step is drying them on the washing line. At this point check whether all the socks have their pairs and then hang each pair using one clothespin or close to each other. Once they’ve made this far, the chances of staying together till they reach your drawer increases.
4) Clever folding technique
Once they have managed to survive blowing winds or any other calamity it’s time to place them where they belong. For this you need to learn this clever folding technique— lay them on top of each other and starting rolling from the toe up to the cuff area and then tuck them inside the cuff of one sock. This way they will not just stay together but will also demand less space.
5) Be different
There will be days when you are too tired or bored to follow the above tips and you might end with two different socks. Wear it like that unless you’re going to work and call it your own style! Because life’s too short to find matching socks! 😉
