Why Wash Socks in Cold Water

Washing socks in cold water has several benefits, including:

  • Energy efficient: Cold water washing uses less energy and is better on the environment compared to warm or hot water washing.
  • Color protection: Cold water helps to protect bright and dark colors from fading, keeping your socks looking vibrant for longer.
  • Fabric care: Delicate or high-quality fabrics can shrink or lose their shape in hot water. Cold water tends to be more gentle on these fabrics, preserving their appearance and longevity.

Tumble Dry on Low

Tumble drying on low is important when it comes to caring for your socks. High heat can damage the fibers in your socks, causing shrinkage, fading, and other damage. Tumble drying on low helps to avoid these issues and keep your socks in great condition.

Wash with Similar Colors

When washing your socks, it's important to wash them with similar colors. This helps to avoid color bleeding and helps to keep your socks looking vibrant.

Avoid Bleach

Bleach is a harsh chemical that can damage the fibers in your socks and cause fading. We recommend gentle laundry detergents.

Taking care of your high-quality socks by washing them in cold water with similar colors and tumble drying on low is important for maintaining their quality and longevity. By following these tips, you can ensure that your socks are always looking and feeling the best. And don't forget, if you are wearing your socks regularly, you may need to consider replacing them every six months.
