How is it that only one sock will go missing from an entire load of laundry? Every week I have at least one pair missing its mate and it inevitably turns up in the next load…or even in the dryer the next week! I usually just throw the lone wolf sock in the drawer and hope I find it’s mate soon, but sometimes it gets buried under the other socks never to be seen again, so I came up with a solution!MAke a fun laundry room sign and decor - add laundry room humor


We recently built a laundry room in our basement and now that I have a proper place to do laundry, I can be more organized! I decided to make a fun piece of chalkboard wall decor that also would hold my socks looking for a mate.
