We all have experienced wearing a sock that has a hole, at least once in our lives. Socks are kind of having it rough: you walk in them for hours, you run in them, and they keep getting friction. That is why we want to share to you how to keep them last longer.
TURN YOUR SOCKS INSIDE OUT
This kind of applies to most - if not all - of your clothing items. By turning your socks inside out, the outside part will then receive less friction - which means less damage.
PUT YOUR SOCKS IN A LAUNDRY BAG.
You can get laundry bags from your nearest supermarket. Even better, you can put them in a microfibre laundry bag, to minimise the release of microplastic down the drain. But other than that, putting your socks in a laundry bag protects the socks better from friction - thus they will last longer. Also check out our washing instructions here.
FOLLOW THE WASHING INSTRUCTIONS
We have put our "care" instructions on each of the product page, as well as on the hang tag of our socks. Basically there are a couple of things that you need to do: wash cold when you can, or 30°C max. We recommend air dry for your socks. But if in the case you need to tumble dry, make sure you set it to low. Read our washing instructions in full here.
USE MILD SOAP
Clothing soap/detergent that are made for wool or delicate fabric would be your best bet. That way, the soap would be more gentle to your clothing. Do not use bleach for your socks, it will ruin them. Fabric softener is also not necessary, as our socks are naturally already soft. Check them out for yourself!
SOCKS STILL PILLING? NO STRESS.
Unfortunately, your socks will pill overtime once you wear and wash them. That is totally normal! In fact, it is a sign that your socks are made with natural fibre. Our socks are made with organic cotton, so they will pill overtime. The most important thing is that they aren't prone to wear and tear so quickly! If you follow the above tips, hopefully you can keep your socks a tad bit longer. Best of luck!
