How to Wash Your Socks to Make Them Last

After a few cycles of washing, we’ve all been through seeing the once vibrant colours of our socks grow duller, finding new holes, or having a couple pairs go missing. To help you improve the longevity of your socks, here are some tips you could follow:

1. Check the laundry care label

This is a step many people often forget before throwing out the label of their new socks. Most often, these labels suggest the following:

  • Gentle wash in cold water
  • Avoid tumble drying
  • Avoid bleaching
  • Avoid ironing

2. Use a mesh laundry bag

Using a mesh laundry bag will help minimize abrasion from the washing machine as well as lint pickup. Although washing your socks inside-out is a nice alternative, a bag may prevent socks from going missing (it IS possible for them to disappear in the machine).

3. Leave them to air dry

Hang or spread your socks to air-dry. Though tumble drying may be more convenient, the heat from the dryer will shorten the life of the elastic, and can cause shrinkage in even the highest quality pair of socks.

Where can I get a high quality pair of socks?

Check out Society Socks! We do our best to ensure that all of our pairs are durable and of the highest quality. Depending on the handling and care, your Society Socks should outlast other lesser quality products.

We at Society Socks have worked closely with our manufacturers to create a pair of socks that would outlast dozens of loads of laundry. Our use of combed cotton in our socks provides a soft and comfortable feeling after many uses.
