Socks are clothing worn directly on the feet and legs. They have the functions of keeping warm, decorating or protecting the feet from being scratched by shoes or the ground. There are many materials, including cotton, nylon, and wool blends. In ancient China, socks were wrapped in white cloth, and then put on cotton socks, or "foot bags." Since the Americans invented nylon stockings, socks are basically made of chemical nylon, including stockings and trousers. Socks, suspenders, etc. have appeared one after another.
Health tips for socks:
Older people wear socks, don't have tight socks
In order to prevent the socks from falling, many elderly people prefer to choose tighter socks, and even have red marks on the ankles, which is very harmful to health. The ankle is an important gateway for the blood circulation of the foot. If the sock cuff is too tight, it will cause the venous blood that should flow back to the heart to stagnate near the ankle, which will increase the burden on the heart and cause high blood pressure in the long run. If the socks are too tight, you may wish to use an iron to “fatify” the socks: find a piece of cardboard with a moderate width, prop up the socks, and lightly iron them on both sides of the socks. , The tight socks can be much looser.
The socks have a peculiar smell and the white socks are always not clean. What should I do?
Add vinegar to taste. The main component of vinegar is acetic acid, which has the effect of cleaning and sterilization, and can also remove acid odor. It is a natural cleaning agent. When washing socks, put two drops of white vinegar first, and then soak for a while before washing. The vinegar can penetrate deep into the fibers of the socks, thoroughly descaling, and sterilizing the socks at the same time. Vinegar is also a natural softener, which can prevent the socks from becoming hard and compact.
Wash white socks with rice water. White socks are often soaked in rice water to avoid yellowing. If the socks have turned yellow and they can't be washed well, you can add bleaching powder to the soaked detergent solution, put the socks in and soak for 20 minutes, and then wash them. When using this method, you must pay attention to flushing several times to reduce the residual chemical substances.
Women choosing the wrong socks can endanger their health. There are three situations where socks should be eliminated
1. Loss of flexibility
If the socks lose their elasticity, they will increase the friction with the feet. When walking or exercising, they will not follow the feet. If they sweat, they will feel slippery and will be easily injured.
2. The heel becomes thinner and has holes
Wearing socks for a long time will inevitably become thinner, which can also cause heel injuries or blistering.
3. Uncomfortable to wear
When your feet feel tight, itchy, or markedly strangled, it means that the socks are not suitable.
