It’s laundry day. You have the laundry sorted, you have all your supplies, you are ready to get this task started and completed. Laundry is done, You sit down and fold all the laundry to put things away and realize half of the socks are missing! You know you started with matching pairs so you look inside the washing machine–nothing. You look inside the dryer–nothing. You look around both machines and can’t find the missing socks. You give up looking and continue to finish the laundry. On your next laundry session, you have the same issue.
This seems to be a never-ending issue. So, how do you make it stop? MESH BAG! Yes, you read that correctly. They come in varying sizes and most are labeled for use with delicates. Be sure to use a zippered mesh bag and not one with a drawstring.
The best way to utilize the mesh bag is to make sure each person has a bag for their socks to be used on laundry day. This works really well for infants, kids, and the no-show style socks. Washing the socks inside of the mesh bag is a guaranteed way to make sure all the socks that go in the washer and dryer come out when the laundry is complete.
An item as simple as a mesh bag can help you eliminate the stress and headache of trying to find those missing socks and eliminate having to constantly buy socks to replace the ones you lost! Give it a try and let us know how it works for you!
