I’ve been thinking about writing this post for a long time but it’s such a random topic that I wasn’t sure if I should. But I finally decided that because I like to keep my clothes, blankets, socks, etc. soft, that I’m sure there are others out there that might want to know how to keep their things soft too.
For years I hated when I’d buy a super soft pair of socks and then a few months later they wouldn’t be soft and cozy anymore. I mean the reason you buy them in the first place is because they are super-dooper soft, like walking on a cloud, right? And my daughter’s baby blanket, I bought it for her because it was the softest, coziest thing I’d ever felt but now she calls it her “scratchy blanket”.
After years of getting fed up with soft things turning “scratchy”, I decided to experiment. Last year my mother-in-law got me a pair of soft white socks for Christmas and I was determined to keep them soft, I did. So how did I do it?
I didn’t put them in the dryer. I know socks seem like a silly thing to not put in the dryer, but I have found that anything super soft, will stay soft if you don’t put it in the dryer, and hang it on a dry rack instead.
Since trying my little experiment with my socks I have also tested a few other things. My daughter received a super soft blanket for Christmas last year, and even after multiple washings it is still very soft, I’ve also kept soft the inside of a sweatshirt, my daughter’s fuzzy PJ bottoms, fuzzy slippers, other pairs of socks soft, and more!
As silly as it may seem, this is one of my favorite tricks because I’ll be honest, I like soft and cozy things. 🙂 With Christmas, and all the fuzzy things that come out this time of year, make sure you pin this to remember how to keep them soft and cozy!
