Regularly mow your lawn and find there's all sorts of junk embedded in your socks? Lifehacker reader Tom solved that problem with a simple clothing hack.
Here's Tom's trick:
When trimming the edges and mowing, my socks get all sorts of grass and garden debris lodged in them. It doesn't seem to matter how much I wash them, they are like that for life.
I had an inspired moment yesterday before starting the mowing. I snipped the ends off the arms on an old tracksuit top and presto! Recycled, washable sock protectors.
My socks were still a bit dirty, but completely free of grass, so they should wash a lot better.
Definitely beats picking out the seeds afterwards. Thanks Tom!
