    White socks - only ever wash them with white things, but even so, they go grey after a bit. As for the hat - just wash it with a little detergent on a sponge?


    We need a Washing forum!;)

    Wear once, wash once. That should delay the greying process!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Or get white sox from Primark. They go grey, but they're so cheap it doesn't matter. An endless supply of mitteny dusters or cleaning rags.

    Haven't they got those little sheets that you can put in the wash to absorb leaking colour?

    No idea if it will work but just a thought.

    Indeed so. If you go in the Stevenage Asda without Burburry on you get stopped by the door staff.
