Works For Me
The thief striks again…the sock thief that is. Oh, you know who I am talking about.
That little guy that lives in your dryer. The one who takes one of your socks, for whatever reason. Maybe he makes sock puppets with them? Or maybe he fills them with rice to warm up to soothe his aching muscles after taking the socks!
For whatever reason, he takes them and NEVER returns them. It can be quite annoying. Especially if it’s your favorite pair of socks. Oh come on, you’ve got a favorite pair, too. Don’t you?
Finally, and end to the missing sock problem! My husband came up with this (while I won’t call it his own original idea, I am sure others do it too!) idea so we didn’t have to go out and buy one of those fancy, over-priced garment bags! We had this old mesh bag hamper that was falling apart and we saved the mesh bags. I was just getting ready to toss them when Mr. Lovely came to me and asked if he could use that for our ‘sock bag!’
Several loads of whites later we have yet to find a stray sock! It also helps that my rule is when you take a pair of socks off you MUST ball them up so they stay together till time to go in the wash! What a genius this husband of mine.
This nifty, and might I add re-purposed, laundry bag ‘Works For Me!’ See what works for others at Rocks In My Dryer!
