Now we start the hand-washing procedure. Place the dirty socks into the water and gently mix them around to break up debris and dirt that are attached to the socks. After a few swirls, you should see some dirt detaching from the socks. Maintain gentle movements throughout the procedures, as cashmere socks become more delicate when wet. Allow them to soak in the water for about 30 minutes, then drain the water into the sink. Refill your bucket with a new supply of clean water. Now you want to carefully squeeze out the soapy water from the socks. Don't wring or twist the socks, just do a gentle squeeze. After you have done this a few times, the soap should be completely removed. If not, keep dipping until it is gone.
Train them too to put their dirty socks in the mesh bag. Even if they're too young to do so, put all dirty socks in the bag and throw the entire thing in the washer. They come out clean and the washer doesn't eat the baby's socks.
Each day the child is given 5 points if all the dirty clothes is put in the laundry basket. If pieces of clothing are found around the room, a point for each piece of clothing will be taken away. At the end of the week, the points are added and they will receive a prize. A high score of 35 points, meaning perfect, will get them a favorite snack or toy. Include yourself as well. Make a score sheet for yourself and the rest of the family. Compete to see who gets the highest points at the end of the week. Have fun shooting dirty socks into the basket and see who makes the most shots.
