Everyone is familiar with the phenomenon of losing the one sock, and people don’t know what to do with another one. But it’s not as useless as we think. There are many ways how can we use them. Here are some examples:

Fill the sock with baking soda or coffee, than put it in the shoes. Next morning you will be surprised.
