The Laundry Hack That'll Help You Find Pairs For Your Lost Socks

When it comes to laundry, it's inevitable that with each load you'll find a loose sock or two. While nothing new, lost socks can quickly build up, especially if you have a large family. Lost socks can happen in many ways, whether one is hidden in the machine somewhere, one was left behind in the laundry basket, or you simply can't match up a pair among the socks you have washed. However, another issue comes in when you absentmindedly put down the lost sock, only to have no idea where you put it when the other sock turns up.

This is where the following inexpensive laundry room hack comes in. So simple you'll wonder how you've never thought of it, this hack will make it a whole lot easier for you to keep track of which socks are missing so you can pair them up again quickly. Nobody likes having odd socks, but this hack will help you to keep track of any stragglers until your socks are ready to be reunited.

You'll never feel the frustration of loose socks again with this simple trick

All you need to get started with this hack is a magnetic board and some magnetic clips. This method will help you to organize your laundry room by keeping those pesky loose socks in place until you find the other one to complete the pair. Simply attach a lost sock to the board/clips each time you find one without its other half.  If you want to have some fun with it, swap out the magnetic board for a whiteboard and attach the magnetic clips (for the socks). 

With a whiteboard, you can personalize the hack by writing who the lost socks belong to so they know where to find them. If you don't have the wall space for a board, simply attach the magnetic clips to the side of any item you can in your laundry room. So long as you can keep track of the lost socks, it doesn't matter how you carry out this handy hack, and you'll never waste time trying to find a place to put unpaired socks until their missing pair turns up again.
