Single socks in your drawer? Use socks as pot holders. One fits over the handle of any fry pan and two are great for picking up hot casserole dishes from the oven or microwave. You can easily slip them over your hands especially men's size.

I am sure this works well but I personally don't want anything that has been on feet around my food no mater how many times it has been washed. But that's just me.
Yes Ditto That! Pot holders are cheap! Go to the dollar store and get a few for a dollar. They also can hang up next to the stove where I use mine.
Yes, I especially like men's heavy socks like red wing. I don't even own a regular pot holder! Glad you thought to share this idea. My kids think I am silly! Lilac: buy new socks at dollar tree. Less expensive than a quality pot holder.

I buy heavy men's black socks at the Dollar Store, and cut above and below the heel leaving a "pocket" which easily slips onto a hot pot or skillet handle. Then, I use the cuff as pot holders to remove hot dishes from the microwave. Four pot holders for the frugal price of a $1 pair of socks. These are flexible and easier for my small hands to grasp items rather than buying bulky square quilted pot holders which do not bend.

Another very good idea. On my way to the dollar store!
