Sock Missing Its Mate? Here’s How to Prevent Losing Socks in the Wash

December 10, 2014 1:04 pm

Losing socks in the washer is one of the unexplained mysteries of the universe. No matter how careful you are while doing laundry, it always seems that you’re left with a lonely sock that's missing its mate. Here are a few brilliant tips to help keep your socks together from washing to folding.

  1. Change your thinking. If you think that your washer or dryer is mysteriously eating all of your socks, you might want to retrace your steps. Sometimes the socks simply aren’t organized well and go missing before you even do the laundry. Try starting a smaller hamper specifically for socks.
  2. Start using a laundry bag. Small mesh laundry bags are designed for small items like socks and underwear. Toss your socks in the bag before washing to make sure that they all stay together through the wash cycle.
  3. Buy socks that are all the same. This is possibly one of the most fool-proof sock solutions out there. By buying only pairs of the same socks, you’ll never have to sort, fold and keep track of individual pairs again.
  4. Use a safety pin. If you’ve exhausted all of your options, simply pin the socks together using a safety pin to stop the missing socks once and for all.
