Even if socks are a daily necessity, most people will not take it into their minds or spend time taking care of socks like other clothes.

But still pay attention to the instructions on the washing label, some socks can not be dried with a dryer. It is best to let the socks hang naturally to dry. This is one of the most important considerations for taking care of socks. But don't hang the soaked woolen socks to dry, and lay them dry.
