The Bottom Line: May 9th is Lost Sock Memorial Day!
The Full Story:
May 9th is Lost Sock Memorial Day! For every load of laundry you sort through, there are odd socks. Over time, you may even find that you end up with entire drawers and storage boxes filled with odd socks.
But worry not! Lost Sock Memorial Day is all about commemorating the other (lost) halves of the pairs of socks, which are still with us. Wanna honor their memory? Those spare socks can be reused (put a tennis ball inside with a knot to make a simple dog chew-toy, slip it on your hand for a duster, polish your shoes, or soak it into soapy water for use as a car-cleaning rag – and hello, sock puppets, anyone?)
Can use them all? You can donate the orphan socks.
