Before I chuck them into the trash, I found that they are perfect for cleaning my outdoor clotheslines! We have a lot of birds at our house, so our outdoor clotheslines need wiped down before each use. I love that the seemingly unusable socks do the job perfectly and can be thrown in the wash with my cleaning clothes and reused. When they get too stained, I just use them to clean something icky like around the toilet in the bathroom and toss them in the trash.
When I was a kid, I remember going to my grandma’s house for summer vacations and she would always do her dusting and cleaning with old socks. I’m sure there are a million uses for them, so until my invisible monster decides to return all the disappearing socks, I’m just going to put the mismatched and holey socks to good use.
