Time for another tip, and today's tip is a time saving/cleaning tip.
- To keep from losing socks in the wash, give each member of your family one of those zippered mesh laundry bags that people use for lingerie. Put socks in there, then throw all the bags in the washing machine together. This way, everyone's socks stay separated and you won't have the onesies that happen when you start missing socks. If someone happens to have socks that are really nasty or have lots of grass on them, make sure you shake the stuff off of them outside before you put them in the bags and get different sizes of bags (since I assume that everyone in the house doesn't wear the same size sock).
