    Can the water absorbing socks be washed in a washing machine?

      Hi there, thanks for your question. Absorbent socks should not be washed in a washing machine. The filler inside the socks soaks in liquids, so when they are placed in a washing machine they will do exactly that: absorb all of the water that they can possibly hold, which usually causes the washing machine to go off balance, and may permanently damage it.

      As a side note: absorbent socks should also not be dried in a home or commercial dryer. The particulate in the filler will cause the dryer to overheat.
