Philosophy 2) Wear Them Sooner

Wear your socks sooner and they'll last longer. That's according to a new study by Dr. Linda Amaya-Amaya, a professor of chemistry at Bakersfield College in California. She did her research on cotton/nylon blend socks, finding that as soon as you take them off your feet and put them back in a drawer or hamper, bacteria start forming on them and eating away at the cotton fibers. This process is known as fermentation, which creates heat that breaks down the cotton fibers even faster over time.
