Singleton socks?

Here’s an easy way to keep mates together. Take a lesson from pro laundries and wash napkins or socks in mesh bags. Fill the bag half way and secure with a pin or zip, then toss in the machine. Pairs stay matched, and you save time sorting the cleaned clothes. Give your kids their own bag so they do the sorting for you and say goodbye to the elusive sock monster.

Turn down the heat

To get more life from home washables, air dry or use a no heat setting on your dryer. High heat and over-drying damage most fabric fibers and weaken construction. What is dry enough? Clothes should feel a little moist coming out of the dryer. Cotton fibers have a 6% natural moisture level — if you overdry they just reabsorb moisture from the air. Take them out a little damp and hang in fresh air for final drying to avoid shrinkage and fading that tend to happen in the last 15% of dryer time. If you’re lucky enough to have outdoor hanging space, your clothes will dry naturally, smell fresh and lose a couple of wrinkles from a relaxing hang in the breeze.
