Do your kid's socks still stink after you wash them?

Yes, I've noticed this too. Fortunately (or unfortunately, lol) I end up buying new socks quite often b/c both my boys are constantly getting holes in their socks. I swear, I don't know what they do to them to make them wear down so quickly!!

Two things that have helped us with the smell is to wash the socks in the hottest water possible and using baking soda while putting in on the soak cycle. Good luck!

I soak all of our socks overnight in hot water and Biz detergent. I then will run through the cycle in the morning, than do another hot wash with Tide Free and bleach. My boys socks don't smell after all of that ;)
