The washer ate my sock, and spit it out as lint?

The washer is notorious for eating socks. It’s happened to the best of us at some point. You throw in the wash, and sure enough only one sock remains. No matter how hard you search, it will be in vain. The lone sock is gone.

I’ve been doing laundry for about a week straight. All of the blankets, towels, baby clothes (even the ones he’s outgrown), mommy and daddy clothes. Not to mention the kitchen towels and the fact that several loads had to be rewashed when the dogs decided my laundry looked like a good bed. All the while my son is pulling out the clothes I wanted washed or sneaking his toys in with the clothes.

This being said, I have finally figured out the mystery of the missing sock! In my quest for finishing all of the laundry, I have had to check my lint filter continuously. Somehow it seems to get more and more lint with each wash….. and then I spotted it. Green fuzzy lint of what used to be my warm cozy sock. Sure enough, I looked everywhere. Matched every pair of socks, yet my warm cozy green sock is missing! All that remains of my favorite socks is a bit of tale tail green lint.
