Repeat after me. I am reading CompassVermont.Com
The following is an adapted version of a blog post on the Darn Tough website. Darn Tough is a Vermont company known for making quality socks and giving back to the community.
A lost sock is any missing sock, also known as the "nowhere to be found" syndrome of garments. Perhaps you should check the slim crevice that runs from the end of the washing machine to the not-so-90-degree edge of the concrete floor in the basement if you have the stomach.
The Darn Tough Service Team helps customers find missing socks every day, so these five locations could solve your problem before you have to call.
IN YOUR CLOTHES
A 2016 study estimated that people lose 1.3 socks a month, which comes out to 15 socks per year.
One of the most common places we help people find lost socks post-laundry is up a pant leg. If that's the case, there's a high probability your lost underwear is up there too.
IN THE WASHER/DRYER
The more you wear your favorite socks, the more likely they will, at some point, become separated in a load of laundry. One solution is to wash your socks n a separate bag can help limit the number of socks that go missing in the first place.
IN YOUR CAR
Shucking off your socks after a hike or swim or throwing an extra pair in the back "just in case" are two reasons socks pile up in your vehicle and lose each other. Your back seat may seem small to you, but to a pair of socks, it's the Grand Canyon. Consider a search and rescue mission. Leave no stone unturned.
UNDER THE BED
The worst part about socks under your bed isn't that they are missing, it's that you have to look under there to find out. Lost socks are the reason smartphones added the flashlight app (maybe). If little ones are around, turning this into a game of hide and seek is always better. No matter your age, their eyes are better.
BOTTOM OF YOUR...
Backpack, or carry-on, or checked suitcase, or canvas-bag-purse-thing. The point is any of these vessels is a great place to hide if you are a runaway sock. It's a dark and deep reach with the hand and socks commingle with tissues, protein bars, hankies, mini flashlights, bagel wrappers, and all the other things only you can know.
Go on, empty that thing out. That second set of keys is just one bonus you will get out of the process. Along with your sock, of course.
