Useful Tips on How To Reuse Your Old Socks


We've all lost a sock or two throughout the years, and believe us, we know how annoying it can be. But before you get frustrated, we're here to tell you something controversial - losing socks can be a good thing. Old or single socks can easily be used in many other innovative ways. Curious to find out more? Well, read on because today, we'll be going over some of the best ways to reuse your socks!


Keep Game Pieces Together


Do you keep losing your game pieces? No problem. You can use a sock to keep them together. All you have to do is tie the end of the sock with a knot to make sure that nothing falls out (otherwise, you may end up with the same problem on your hands you wanted to fix), and you'll have yourself the perfect pouch for storing your game pieces. Oh, and double-checking that there are no holes in the sock will help as well. And yes, sadly, we are speaking from experience.


DIY Sleeve for Your Cup


If you've been struggling to hold your cup because it's too hot, but you don’t want your drink to be colder either, we're happy to announce that there's a super easy solution to your problem - socks. Why spend money on coffee cup sleeves when you can put your partnerless but still cool socks to use? All you have to do is cut off the sections to customise them to your liking. For instance, you can cut off the toe part if you don't want to have the bottom of the cup covered, or you can cut off the top section of the sock, especially if it's too small.


Dust Your House


Using your sock for cleaning purposes is an excellent way to clean your house from dust. The sock will effectively trap dust, hair, and dirt on any kind of surface, including blinds, tables, and appliances. Don't believe us? Next time when you remove your shoes inside a house, check the bottom of your sock after walking around for a few minutes and simply look at all the dust it picked up. An added benefit is that you can reuse it as many times as you want, as it can easily be washed in a washing machine. 


Protect the Floors


No more scratching or leaving marks on the floor when moving furniture. Socks are an excellent way to protect your floors from damage when you need to move some furniture around, and it's too heavy to pick up. All you have to do is place socks on the legs of the furniture piece, and you're good to go.


Store Jewelry


Not sure where to put your jewelry when you travel? Socks will come to your rescue. Storing your jewelry in a sock is a convenient and easy way to keep all your jewelry in one place and even provide it with some cushioning. And who knows, maybe this will help you fool potential thieves, too?
