How to make winter socks grippier
Woolly socks are lovely but slipping on a slippery floor isn't. Make your winter socks grippy by adding little Sugru pads to the soles.
- 1 pack white Sugru
- 1 pack blue Sugru
- 1 pack yellow Sugru
- A little washing up liquid
- A nice pair of woolly socks.
First: mix a single-use foil pack of blue Sugru and one of white Sugru, then add about a third of a yellow pack, to get the charming teal colour you see here.
Then I smush very small balls of Sugru right into the fabric, making sure it bonds with all the fibres, blending it into a circular patch.
It'll look a bit messy to start out with, but then you can add layers and use a little soapy water to make it smooth. You can even get a scalpel out and trim round the edges if you like (but they are just going on the bottom of your feet).
I would advise placing the Sugru dots directly where your toes would be, rather than in-between, as that proves to be a little uncomfortable (I pulled one off and re-did it because of this).
And if you have leftovers, you can put it to good use by making a teal seal like the one shown here!
