Man: Honey where’s my other blue sock?
Wife: I don’t know, I guess it got lost in the dryer again.
Have you ever wondered how socks can get lost in a dryer? I mean where do they go?
If you spend time looking for lost socks or matching the ones you have, here’s a technique that will save hours of your time. Watch for a good buy on socks. Then purchase a large number of the exact same sock. By having all blue or all white for example, you eliminate the need to carefully sort and match. And if that doesn’t work for you, try delegating this simple task to children. Very young ones may not get it 100% right but the time you invest in training them can save you lots of time in the long run.
Here’s one more laundry tip. When ironing, take a moment to pray for each family member as you iron their clothes. It will make the task much more enjoyable and help you to redeem the time.
