Do you sometimes think you are going mad when you end up having stray socks at the bottom of your washing basket? You think to yourself “where did I put my other sock”. Some of us just lose socks because we are disorganized or plain forgetful. But, even the most careful of people still lose their socks. On average, Brits lose 1.3 socks a month in their lifetime.
The myth has always been that your washing machine eats them. It does sound ridiculous, but there is genuine cause for concern in regards to your washers appetite for socks. When you look into it, there are many places your socks can disappear to when you put them in the wash.
