Oh no… where’d that sock go?
Laundry can be quite the chore, especially when you’ve got a full household and mounds of clothes to add to the cycle. Hip2Save reader Chrystal has a helpful tip for how to wrangle an endless amount of socks AND prevent them from getting lost in the wash!
Doing laundry for a family with kids is a never-ending job. The job had become a nightmare in my house because we were always losing socks and getting socks mixed up within the household. I finally decided to make a change and bought lingerie bags with zippers from Walmart. They were a whopping .99 each and this has saved my life!
Each person has their own bag that hangs in their room. As soon as dirty socks are removed we place them in our own bag and on laundry day we zip them and throw the bags into the regular wash. They clean perfectly well and go straight to the dryer still zipped.
Now we never lose any socks (saving us money) and never waste time sorting socks either as each person gets their own laundry sock bag to match!
Excuse me while I head to Walmart (or even the Dollar Tree) to copy this hack!
It’s so simple, yet so effective, no matter the size of your laundering loads.
Thank you, Chrystal, for sharing this easy way to make laundry day a bit less laborious.
