Do you even remember how many times you bid a socks farewell forever when doing laundry, or have you already lost count? At first, you might have thought that it stayed in a laundry basket, but after a few more mysterious disappearances, you knew something was not right. Your socks are eaten in the laundry by your washing machine!

You might think you will never see again those already lost. But there is hope. Brace yourself for the next laundry and learn some tricks to save all of your socks.

Even if you think it's silly, missing socks are really ruthlessly devoured! Every washing machine has socks-liking parts, where careless underwear might get lost. They might be trapped under the agitator or the wash plate. Some of them are pushed into the filter, and the other socks hide in the rubber gasket in the door. To put it shortly - missing socks are probably stuck in parts of the laundry machine never seen before.

Is there a way to stop the cycle of lost socks during the laundry? You’ll be relieved to hear that there is, and not only one. Here are some useful tricks to keep the socks in pairs and save them from eternal loneliness.

Use a laundry bag

Be smarter than your washing machine and put your precious Rainbow Socks in a laundry bag. Once they are all in one container, they will be safe. They say that strength is in numbers, so in a fight against missing socks, you should keep them together in one bag.

A closed bag simply saves the socks from getting tangled and stuck in different parts of the washing machine.

Use safety pins

If you pin a pair of socks together, there is nothing that could split them up. Not even a washing machine! Take each sock of the pair, put them together, and clip them with a pin. Lost socks during the laundry are not your problem anymore.
