Extend laundry day! Trips to the laundromat notforthcoming, wash socks and underwear in a wide mouth jar or water bottle (nalgenes are good if you've got butterfingers like me). Just rub a little natural soap on those puppies (I use peppermint dr. Bronner's) and chuck a few pairs in said vessel. Fill 3/4 with warm water, lid that shit and sh-sh-shake it like a Polaroid picture. It's like a mini agitator in your kitchen. Let soak for awhile if they're super festy socks, drain water, refill with clean water to rinse and shake again. Voilà, hang dry (or blast with a hairdryer if you're in a hurry) and you've got 3 more days of cleanliness!
