Even the most organised laundry masters can fall victim to Sock Gremlins—the invisible forces that seem to whisk individual socks away, leaving an unbalanced pair. Environment-friendly blog Planet Green has a few suggestions before you think about tossing that orphaned sock, including:
- Protect fragile holiday ornaments when you put them away for the year
- Use as a whiteboard eraser
- Send to Operation Happy Sock, where it’ll be stuffed with polyfill and catnip for cats at the local animal shelter
- Protect your MP3 player
Nifty ideas, and there are ten more at the link. Of course, you could also strive to avoid orphaned socks entirely with a no-sort system. Photo by kevin.
