But there are a few simple sock hacks that can help you keep your socks organised and minimise the morning madness. Here are a few of our favourite sock hacks:

If your socks get old, don't throw them away.
Old socks have a multitude of uses. When you implement your new socks sorting system, we recommend wiping the slate clear and getting rid of your old odd socks. But don’t throw them out. Here’s a few uses for old socks:
- Old socks make great dust cloths. They're soft and absorbent, and they're lint-free. Simply cut the socks off at the ankle and use them to dust furniture, appliances, and other surfaces.
- They also make great pet hair removers. If you have pets, you know how much hair they can shed. You can use an old sock to remove pet hair from furniture and carpets. Simply wet the sock and wring it out. Then, rub the sock over the surface to pick up the hair.
- Pet toys: Old socks can be turned into fun and engaging toys for your pets. Simply stuff the socks with some fabric scraps or paper and tie them closed. Your pets will love to play fetch or tug-of-war with their new toys.
- Save for crafting projects. Old socks make great toys, puppets and can add texture to your next crafting project.
