To make sure you enjoy a long and pleasurable sock experience we have collated our five vital sock survival tips.
1. Do not expose your socks to sharp objects!
Sharp objects such as kitchen knives, fountain pens, letter openers, corkscrews or heaven forbid… long toenails, can irreparably damage the fabric leaving you deprived from further sock pleasure. Side note: Gentlemen, if you wish to get OR hold on to a girlfriend, long toenails should be banished now and forever in any case.
2. Never scald your socks!
Treat your socks like living beings. Sure, they want to feel clean, but this is no reason to boil them alive. A bath at 40°C is sufficient to maintain good foot hygiene.
3. Don’t wage chemical warfare against your socks!
Socks are one of the few garments you wear close to your body. It is not fair to torture them with bleach or stain-remover. A bit of water and washing powder will do nicely in most cases.
4. How would you like being trapped in a spinning sauna?
Tumble drying is a torture device for your socks if you care about their longevity. A dryer produces lots of hot air and that becomes unbearable after a while. Spinning and hot air pulls small fibres from your socks so do keep your favourite socks away from those shuddering beasts!
