    Don't really think there is a way. No matter what is done they always seem to have a bit still left in them. That is why I have good socks and work socks. They are just going to have grass after them after the first lawn anyways. One thing I found that helps a bit is to let them dry out before you wash and swing them together so they entwine then pull apart. Not something I really worry about though.

    Mom said tell you guys to use hot water and a good detergent. I hardly ever get grass in or on my socks because 99% of the time I wear jeans when mowing and especially trimming. She said that the hot water and a good detergent gets out alot of stuff. The few times I do get grass in my socks she has always gotten it out, so this may work I dunno. Just have to try it.

    Shaking my socks out after hanging them to dry (sweaty feet) in the garage for a day prior to washing works well for me.

    thanks for the advice all. the dryer is where most of it comes out but not all of it. wearing jeans is out of the question. 102 degree heat index here yesterday, and feels about the same today. i guess ill just wash my work clothes from my casual clothes seperately. thanks again.

    You can take regular scotch tape reverse wrap it around you hand (sticky side out) then use it like a blotter. It will pick up most of the grass.

    I use a air hose and blow the grass off before washing

    best way I found is don't wear socks
