Tip on avoiding losing socks!
I have not lost a sock in over 30 years. When I take my socks off I roll them together and turn the cuff down to cover the ball. It then goes into the hamper and the socks are opened just as I put them in the washer. One Christmas I gave my grandchildren a small (indoor) basketball hoop to hang on their bedroom door. When they roll their socks into a ball they can toss them into the hoop and a waiting bag below. It works.
