Do you genuinely put fresh socks on everyday?

i accidentally wore yesterday’s socks again today as i got ready in a rush

feel minging

will occasionally re-wear socks if i’m working from home and have no plans to go any further than the corner shop that day, especially if i’m running low on socks or want to keep some good socks for another day

if i’m going to be in polite society then absolutely change them


i only put mine on to go out so if im just popping out for a short while i will then take off at home and reuse many many times

You may be correct, however, if socks get a hole in them, I will mix and match to make up pairs if needed.

  • I throw socks in the bin as soon as I notice a hole in them
  • I persist with them

Persist for a few more wears while the hole is small. As the hole gets bigger I will rip it into a massive hole (satisfying) and bin them


Don’t understand this laundry x socks point. Socks don’t take up any laundry space at all. Do people have less than a week’s worth of socks or something?


Don’t even know why I’m replying to this clear bait thread.

Used to work with a chap who wore brand new socks every day

Double sock for football so socks with holes generally end up becoming the undersock

  • Mend them (or, realistically, put them in my mending pile, never to be seen again)

Big disgraced emo fan?


Persist for a bit, then wear them as undersocks for hockey (beneath the ankle supports I have to wear), then put them in the fabric recycling bin.

The time and effort required to darn a sock means that it’s just not a worthwhile exercise.

  • I rewear clothes many times before washing
  • I don’t for some reason

Enjoying @barleysugar’s responses in here



Wash after one wear: socks, pants, t-shirts, shirts (if no t-shirt underneath)
Wear more than once before washing: everything else to varying degrees. Stuff like jeans and wool jumpers get loads of wears. A shirt that’s had a t-shirt underneath usually two wears then wash. Other stuff like shorts, sweatshirt, etc. somewhere in between depending on use.


Completely this


I also do the same thing with t-shirts as I do socks:

On a bad day I can pull a muscle putting my right sock on


Socks go in the laundry basket thing when they’re taken off, and nothing comes out of there unless it’s going straight into the washing machine.
