by Steph Pheonix

Simple tip so you don't blow out the ankles of socks! Also helps pack them tighter. Enjoy!


  • 1 Bunch Clean socks!!!
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    So this tip works with all types of socks, that's why I grabbed three types of socks.

    Step 2

    Tuck the toes together.

    Step 3

    Fold the elastic side over making thirds of the sock. As you can see I had an audience watching.

    Step 4

    Open the elastic of the of the folded side.

    Step 5

    Then tuck the toes of both socks in the elastic. And that's it. It seems slow but when your pairing socks it's quick.

    Step 6

    The ankle one makes a triangle but folded tight.

    Step 7

    Even these socks fold small.

    Step 8

    So turn your normal folded socks......

    Step 9

    Into this.......The three socks are flat and more space saving when packing also you don't stretch out the ankle elastic.
