Today, we are tackling a subject that is as mysterious as it is widespread. You got it, we are going to try to solve the mystery of the socks that disappear. Just like us, it certainly happens to you to realize that one of your socks has lost its soul mate after washing, and that it is often impossible to get your hand (or foot!) back on its half. And then the dilemma arises: throw it away? keep it in the drawer? remarry her with another sock declared celibate?
We then conducted our investigation to understand what could be happening at the heart of the drum. And there are different theories...
Some, by dint of repeatedly losing socks, have really decided to believe that the machine was responsible for it and feeds cruelly on small socks. But it seems that it is not very serious...
Another explanation (a bit more realistic) would be that the socks simply disappear between the drum and the door, where there is a small plastic space, in which the smallest socks slip… but what are they leaking?
However, scientific studies tend to refute the responsibility of our washing machine (we have doubts about its innocence) and declare that it is very often a question of disappearance due to our inattention. So we are accused!
But between socks fallen between the wall and the washing machine, socks separated and put in different colored dirty laundry bins, bad associations when folding clean laundry, and socks fallen from the washing line and blown away by the wind… It is true that we would have the right to our share of responsibility in this story at the heart of our socks.
So… Take a look behind your washing machine, and tell us which version you believe in!
