Keeping Baby Socks Together in the Wash

December 6, 2010

After having a baby, I quickly learned how easily baby socks can get lost in the wash. Even if my son's tiny socks made it through the full laundry cycle, I was finding myself spending considerable time matching the socks with their mates. That's when it occurred to me! I saw a safety pin sitting on my table and decided to try safety pinning the socks together before they got thrown into the dirty laundry!

This has proven to be the best time saving trick I've ever implemented! So much so that I have even started safety pinning my own socks before they go into the wash! I highly recommend you give this one a try - you won't regret it and will quickly realize how much time you were unnecessarily spending matching socks.

Put your baby's tiny socks into a zippered lingerie bag when you put them in the washing machine. They won't get lost.

I use an under-bed organizer with dividers to sort my socks right out of the dryer. Each member of my household has a slot.

Having raised 4 daughters I always had tons of single socks to pair up. Many remained mysteriously single.

I use safety pins to keep socks together when washing. No more losing one sock. I also put a color stripe on sock so I know whose is whose.

Use a safety pin to keep socks together while doing laundry. It's so worth the time to safety pin them together right when you put them in the dirty clothes hamper.
