The mystery of the missing socks

Updated: Nov 16, 2023

How often do you miss a sock after doing the laundry?

Isn’t it the most annoying thing EVER?

Like, where the heck do they go?

In my case, I cannot count how many hours and brain cells, I have lost in my life looking for missing socks.

And I am not even going to get into the financial aspect of this because I would need a glass of champagne for that, and I can’t get one right now!


One day, after once again losing one of my son’s socks to this unresolved mystery of mankind, I had one of those genius ideas of mine, that earned me my Queen Of Life Hacks title.

I put it into practice and I have not chased socks since then. Not a single time.

Bye bye missing socks headaches. Hello stress-free laundry days.

So, here comes my life hack against missing socks

I am going to share this laundry life hack with you, and I want you to forward it to everyone you know that wears socks and has a washing machine, specially if they have kids. They need to know!

Here we go.

You probably know about washing bags.

If not, let me google that for you. (I know, I already used that in previous blog posts, but you know: YOLO!)

A washing bags exclusively for those socks IN your laundry basket.

At the end of the day, I directly put my socks in that washing bag.

When I want to actually do the laundry, I just put the washing bag in the washing machine.

Those socks cannot escape anymore, can they?

When the laundry is done, I just need to take the bag out and all the socks that came into the machine also come out of it.



So, to save yourself money, a lot of time and a huge amount of brain cells, try putting a socks-washing-bag directly in your laundry bag.

Until next time,
