Just wondering if anyone has found a really good way to deal with socks. With all this rain the grass is so juicy I have green paste in my boots.

I am tempted to just buy a pair for every day of my season (210)
and just throw them away at the end of the day.

Seriously these socks are nasty!:dizzy:

I don't know how mine get clean, I just throw them in the laundry hamper and a couple days later I find clean pairs in my drawer.:D I should ask the wife if she knows how they get there.

My local wholesale club store sells Docker Sports socks in 3pks. They come in dark green and brown as far as colors. I wear these instead of white socks. Don't show the dirt as much (blends in).

Lots of bleach, and I'm not afraid to throw 'em away! Kmart sells 6 packs for $5, I go through a lot of them.

Ok, now let me see if I understand this.

We work in dirt, mud, rain, grease, saw dust, dog poop, gas, mulch, and more dirt.

And we are worrying about green socks? :D Hahahahahahaha!

Guys they are SOCKS! Take them off each day, put on a clean pair the next morning. Wash them at the end of the week.

BTW how do you get the green stains out of your shirt and pants? Or do you just put on a new pair each day. Oh and take a good look at your favorite hats!

This is just tooooooooooooo funny!

I've started by buying the gray ones in the first place.. then bleach them anyway when they're real bad......
Who cares anyway... just gonna get greener next time......

Reminds me of a story a Cop friend told me once. He went on a call about a burglar. The woman told them that someone had been in her apartment, but only took her panties. Seems what had really happened is that she was sort of "simple" and her mother had died recently and the old lady had been washing the womans clothes and putting them in the drawer for her. She didn't know how they got there, just that when she ran out she figured they were stolen. Cops found the "dirty" ones in the hamper. Don't know if the taught her how to wash them.

Very nice! Those must be your favorites. I can almost smell ‘em from here.

BTW, most people actually wear shoes while working.

This has got to be one of the stupidest posts EVER! LOL It's kinda funny to laugh at...

I didn't click Harry's link but you could put walmart plastic bags over your feet before you put on your boots then put your jeans over your boots as usual, no one will know might be noisy though LOL should work fine.

PetalsandPines, I'm gonna write my moderator and request that you be banned!!!!!!!!! LOL

We have one lawn that has not been cut all year because it has turned into a swamp with all the rain and it is at least 15,000 square feet. Since It poured again today, 3 of Us decided to tackle it with weed wackers. In some areas of the lawn the water was up to my ankles.....The weather absolutely sucks here this year.....well wait a minute...the last 4 years the weather has sucked.

Try www.thetorcompany.com

You can buy socks in bulk for CHEAP.

I throw mine away everyday and get a new pair on in the morning.
