When I was little my dad used to use a big brass safety pin and pin his socks together before going in the washing machine. I thought he was such a weirdo, but now I TOTALLY GET IT!
I have a big Lululemon shopping bag FULL of unmatched socks. Where do they all go? I’m sure some of the matches are in the bag, but there are some that are now lonely singles. Does the washing machine really eat socks?
How do you solve this problem? I’m worried the safety pins would pull and mishapen the socks, otherwise I would totally copy my father’s idea. Do you use a lingerie bag for socks? I’m thinking that might not be a bad idea, but socks in our house are usually pretty dirty and I’m wondering if they would get clean enough in a lingerie bag.
Meanwhile I will search sweatshirt sleeves and pant legs for stowaway socks.
What is you method for keeping socks together in the wash?
