The sock monster: Why your socks always disappear in the laundry
How many times have you lost your favorite socks in the laundry? And how many times did you find them again, among the heap of clothes? This can only be called sock hell and it’s happened to everyone, right? Well, not anymore! The sock monster has arrived to your home, ready to eat all your missing socks and bring them back to the laundry basket. Introducing PhiloSocks, the sock of the month club! This article will explain why your socks keep going missing, and will show you how Philosocks can help you avoid this problem from now on.
Why they go missing
It's quite common for socks to go missing in the laundry. No one knows why they do, but they just do. One theory is that they could be eaten by a sock monster, but nobody has ever seen the sock monster, so no one can say for sure. The sock monster is a myth and those socks will never come back.
It could also be because of static electricity. If you put two socks on and take them off quickly enough, one sock will get stuck on each other and then it'll get lost in your clothes hamper or somewhere else in your house.
How to prevent them from doing so
Washing socks with other clothes will cause them to become tangled and knotted, so it's best to wash socks by themselves. You should also avoid putting them in the dryer, as this will cause them to shrink and wear down more quickly. Instead, put them on a drying rack or hang them up on a clothesline to let them air-dry outside. Socks can be washed together on cold water cycles, and they should be washed at least every three wears.
Ways to keep them organized
The sock monster is a real thing. You know, that one sock that disappears when you're doing laundry? Well, it's not just a myth. Socks are the number one item to go missing during wash cycles. What's worse is that there is no accountability for the disappearing socks. There are many ways to keep them from going MIA again, but it all comes down to what type of socks you have and what kind of washer you have. As this blog post will show you there are many ways to keep those socks from getting lost again!
Methods of dealing with missing socks
If you're tired of losing socks when they go through the washer or dryer, there are a few options you can take. These include buying brightly colored socks that stand out, placing two pairs of socks into one sock (one to wear and one as a spare), or getting a subscription box that sends you new socks every month so you're never without. The most important step is to know where all your socks are at all times!
Tips on buying replacements
If you want to buy replacements for the socks that have disappeared, there are many online shops you can use. One of these is Miss Allie's Sock Store, which has a sock subscription service where they send out fresh pairs of socks every month. If you're looking for something more specific like colorful socks, there's a store called Sock Madness that has a huge selection of crazy color dress socks and cool socks for men. If you're shopping at Nordstrom, they have an awesome sock club where they'll give you a pair of ankle socks every month (plus free shipping!).
