Cleaning Dog Poop off of Socks
If you’re really unlucky, you had socks on when you stepped in the present that your puppy left for you during housetraining. This is especially disgusting, because dog poop on cloth just makes it uncomfortable and gross. Thankfully, it’s relatively simple to get rid of dog poop on your socks (and other clothing as well!).
What You Will Need:
- Rubber Gloves
- Cold water
- Baking Soda
- Soak your sock in cold water, or rub at it (while wearing gloves), before you put it in the laundry. Cold water will help to agitate the excess poop come loose; don’t use hot water, because the poop will get caked on from the heat.
- Wash your sock or other article of clothing as you normally would (cold water). In most cases, this will totally eliminate the issue and you don’t have to worry about it anymore.
- Check the article of clothing before switching it to the dryer. If there is still poop, give it another soak in cold water with baking soda. This will help to eliminate any leftover odor and will start to eat away at the poop.
- After allowing the sock to dry, try to scrape away what’s left and toss it in the laundry again. If it doesn’t work this time, then it may just be time for you to get a new pair of socks.
