How do washing & drying methods effect sock wear and tear?
During happy hour on Friday, I shared my Smartwool experiment idea and one co-worker mentioned that perhaps it is not the Smartwoolness of the socks, but rather the process of cleaning and drying any wool sock that wears it quickly. Since this is a valid hypothesis and why-the-heck-not, I have decided to make my project more complex. I will wash and dry the socks in different ways to see if how socks are cleaned and dried makes a difference in how long they last. Here is the which sock gets washed and dried which way chart.
