We want your socks to last and stay in great shape for as long as possible. It’s our hope you only come back to order more socks when you need to top up your supplies (#wheredoalltheoddsocksgo #wedontknow) or order a new size for your growing kid’s feet. Here are our tips on caring for your dot on a sock socks:
Tip #1 Use a hosiery bag
Use a washing bag to prevent socks from snagging on zippers, buttons etc. and from becoming tangled with other clothes and stretching out of shape. If you purchase more than 5 pairs of dot on a sock socks - a complimentary wash bag will be included with your purchase.
Tip #2 Do not overcrowd the machine
If you wash socks without a hosiery bag with lots of other clothes they may tangle with other clothes and stretch out of shape, so be sure to not overload your machine.
Tip #3: Add a little fabric softener love to your cycle
No doubt your kids will be telling you just how fabulously comfortable the dot on a sock socks are. To maintain their softness, add a little fabric softener love to the wash cycle.
Tip #4: Use a gentle setting on your washing machine
Use a gentle cycle setting on your washing machine. If the socks are dirty, you may need to use a setting with more agitation or soak them first (see tip #7)
Tip #5: Use cold water only
Use cold water to prevent the colour running.
Tip #6. Use drier with caution
We understand that life is busy (and sometimes Mother nature is just in a bad mood for too many consecutive days). While we don’t recommend it, if you do need to use the dryer, please dry socks using a medium temperature.
Tip #7: for particularly dirty socks with dots
If your kids are anything like ours, they might love to walk around the house or the yard in their socks! Here’s our 3-step method to get those socks nice and bright again:
- Soak. In a little bit of soaking in warm water and a mild detergent for 3-5 minutes.
- Wash. For mildly dirty socks, move them around the soapy water for a couple of minutes. For particularly dirty socks, gently rub them against each other to remove the dirt.
- Rinse. In cold water. You may need to rinse two or three times to get all detergent out. Once you’re done, squeeze (but don't wring!) out an excess water and hang them out to dry.
