Edgar’s blog: a pair of socks should stay a pair

For a four footed creature like me it’s ridiculous to walk with odd socks. For a long time I have spent hours matching socks that came out of the laundry. I tried out a lot of hacks to keep my pairs a pair. Some ideas worked a bit but mostly it took more time then matching the pair of socks.

One day I was swimming along in the river Maas just in front of the Rotterdam Building and suddenly it hit me. A button! That’s it, just a button. Buttons have been used for ages in almost every kind of clothing. Even boxer shorts have buttons. And yet nobody had put buttons on a sock.

So I tried it out… It worked great!

On one sock there is a button and on the other sock there is a buttonhole. Button them up before you throw them in the laundry. Put your pair of socks in the washing machine. And best of all, take your pair out of the washing machine! Besides the fact that they stay together in the washing machine you also save time hanging them out on the drying rack. Yes! No more faff with pegs.

I most def made my life a lot easier. I hope it will make yours a lot easier too!

Cheers, Edgar
