Do how you wash your socks make a difference?

Do how you wash your socks make a difference?

Some people will tell you it does not, that you can just throw your individual socks in the washing machine with all your other items and hope for the best.

Even though you may love your Offbeat Socks and proudly display them to the world, it may not mean we are treating them with the love and care they deserve.

Fortunately, there are several easy steps you can take to ensure long-lasting quality and longevity of your sock designs and we are here to tell you how.

Our material composition, quality control and design standards are paramount to the team at The Offbeat Sock Company.

Your Offbeat Sock composition of 80% Combed Cotton, 15% Nylon, 5% Spandex is the result of a rigorous testing process to ensure the very best in quality control.

With such a specific composition we recommend that when caring for your Offbeat Sock collection you follow the below guidelines:


  • Washing in a temperature of 40°C/104°F
  • Turn your socks inside out when washing
  • Allow the garments to drip dry
  • Do not bleach
  • Do not tumble dry


Adopting our tips and practices into your washing methods will serve a variety of added purposes including protecting your sock material and vibrant colours, providing a more thorough clean of your socks while removing most of the odour-causing bacteria that build up inside of the sock.

For extra optimal longevity of your socks, we recommend washing them in our Official Offbeat Socks Wash Bag to better protect the high-quality standards of your garments.

If you take the time to care for your collection, then the socks will reward you by giving you a longer-lasting product and in turn more time to show that you indeed do Live Life Offbeat.
