My question is: what is the best way to go about washing these socks?
I don't want to overthink it since at the end of the day, they're socks, but at the same time, I don't want to trash them either. What I've been doing is throwing them in the washing machine with my other clothes and some detergent, and then hanging them up to dry. However, when they come out of the washing machine, they're always very "unpleasant" to the touch. I'm not sure how to describe it. They're just not that soft anymore.
