Is your dryer hungry? Mismatched and misplaced socks are the blight of all laundry lifecycles, because they often get eaten by the dryer or lost on the clothesline. If this is a common problem at your house, try this simple laundry room hack – start hanging! Instead of throwing your socks and underwear in the dryer, hang them up with clothespins.

Grab some of 3M’s picture hanging strips and attach them to the wall at eye level in your laundry room. Fern uses a dab of hot glue that is easily removed from her tiled laundry room wall, but you could also use hanging strips for drywall.

Simply attach clothespins to these hanging strips (or hot glue) and clothespin your socks and underwear so that they can air-dry. Your socks will never have to experience separation anxiety again!
