#Holiday - Happy National Lost Sock Memorial Day!

Ansley Ansley


Dryers, pets, determined children who hate things on their feet...someday, somehow you're going to lose one of two in a pair of socks. You'll never see it again and you'll think you have lost your mind and your family members will find you muttering to yourself as you go about your daily business about something known as a sock-monster that has nothing better to do than steal your socks! So you throw the now single sock into a drawer forget about it and vow to buy more on your next trip to a place that sells socks.



It's a pain in the ass, no need to sugar-coat the facts here. There are a few ways you can deal with the problem before the load goes from washer to dryer: you can pin the socks together, you can throw them in a mesh garment bag for laundering, or you can throw caution to the wind and just go for it. (If the agitator on your washer ever starts seem weird...there's either a sock or a pair panties responsible, usually.)

Orrrrrr you can click here and find out how JS250 and others deal with having only sock.

For me? Personally, I don't mind mismatched socks and I like to have fun with them. I'll wear a Christmas sock with a Halloween sock or a blue sock with a green sock. Just depends on how I feel on that day.

And a bonus question - what do your favorite pair of socks look like? What's your sock style? Bright and colorful? White gym socks?

We just set them on top of the dresser until the match is found. For the kids we have started buying the same color/kind of sock to help out but my daughter has to have some variety.

My favorite are camo winter socks, to bad they are to hot to wear in the summer.

I use the ones we can't match for rags in the garage.

I'm so boring. I wear white socks. I LOVE toe socks and colorful socks with crazy patterns. The best pair I ever had was green and white with frogs all over them. But my funny socks always seem to wear out fastest, and I always feel guilty spending a lot of money on socks, so white socks it is!

Course, I have a habit of buying different types of white socks, so I still have this problem. I think the guy at the laundromat steals socks out of everyone's washer to keep us on our toes.

I'm totally kidding, but how crazy would that be?

I wear white crew socks--all the same. However, I do have the mysterious onesies from time to time on my other socks prior to my same sock decision. Those are fun to figure out how to use....

We started putting them in one of the Captains Cabinets under our water bed. Now, we have fully filled the entire cabinet! When you open it, you get assaulted by socks, all kinds of socks; baby socks, big man socks, lady socks, socks with holes, wool socks that I am allergic to, a pair of underwear that I have no idea how it got in there (it isn't mine.)

I keep saying, "I'll go through them and sort them." But, I am sure the partners of these socks are gone. I should throw them all out.

I just usually wear white socks that sometimes end up static clung to something of my husband's while in the dryer and they're found later on.
