Has that ever happened to you? Well, maybe you're not as anal about your socks matching as I am. But I have been in the predicament where my child had an off-white shirt and no socks to match. And I just can't bring myself to put white socks on them! (Sorry, it's a sickness!)
So, what do you do if you really, really, really need off-white socks and only have white?
Tea bags, I say!
Yes, you take your white socks (or other white clothing item) and dip them in a bowl of freshly prepared tea. You only have to leave them in there for a second.
Take them out, wring them, rise them in cold water, and wring them again.
Toss them in the washing machine and wash as normal.
And, voila, off-white socks!!
Someday you'll thank me.
