sock of the month: How to Use Socks Sensibly
How much do you love socks? If you’re like us, then you probably love them quite a bit—and that’s why we came up with this idea for an awesome new sock subscription service! We believe it’s time to stop keeping your favorite pair of socks in the drawer, hidden away from the rest of the world, and start displaying them on your feet where they belong! But while our sock of the month club isn’t just about socks, it certainly is all about putting those beloved pairs to use in creative new ways.
The right way to put on socks
You may think that you're putting on your socks properly, but there's still an art and a science when it comes to getting them on just right. First, find the seam in your sock. Then, pull one sock up over your foot and push it up over your heel. Next, roll down the top of that first sock so it's right below where you wear shoes. Now put on your second sock so it sits directly next to the first one. You can keep both socks tucked under or tug them out for a looser fit. Plus, if you have a pair of cool men's socks with an awesome design like purple ankle socks or colorful crew socks , you should show them off by pulling them up high!
Wearing socks with sandals
Some people believe that wearing socks with sandals is a fashion faux pas. This can be true, if you're wearing sloppy, old, and thin socks. But it doesn't have to be! I've compiled some tips on how to wear your socks with sandals in a fashionable way.
#1 Wear ankle socks. ankle socks are perfect for this look because they cover up more of your foot and there's no chance of them falling down into your shoe when you walk around. They also go well with different kinds of sandals like gladiator or flip flops.
#2 Don't wear white socks with sandals unless they're knee-high or over-the-knee length so they don't show off too much skin when you walk around!
When to throw away socks
- If a sock is dirty, it needs to be washed before wearing again.
- If you have a few pairs of socks that are missing mates, then it's time to start throwing them away. - When a sock has holes in it, throw it out.
- If you've worn one pair too many times and they start looking funky, chuck them out.
Ways to use old socks
-If you have a lot of old socks, put them in zip-lock bags and put them in your freezer. This is a great way to keep your produce fresh for longer!
-You can use old socks as dusters on delicate surfaces.
-Use an old sock as a pot holder when you're cooking in the kitchen! -Put an ice pack inside one of your old socks and wrap it around an injured area. This will help reduce swelling and bruising. -A sock can also be used as a belt if you are wearing jeans that are too big or small.
Caring for your socks
One way to get more value out of your socks is by taking care of them, because they don't last forever. To start, make sure you wash them at least once a week. If you want your socks to last longer, it's also important that you don't bleach or tumble-dry your socks. Finally, try not to wear the same pair two days in a row and never sleep in them!
