The Perfect “Summer Nights” Sock (Hold in the Moisture)

Has anyone picked up on the title of the post? What was I watching while I cut the toes off my socks? If you guessed Grease, you’re right! If you’re not in the mood to watch the entire movie, at least watch “Summer Nights” on YouTube. Would you believe me if I said singing along helps?

Applying lotion to my heels is one of the last things I do each night before heading to bed.Living in Atlantic Canada most of the year I am happy to follow this application with a pair of socks (though in my adult life I can probably count the number of times on one hand that I have gone to bed with socks and woken up still wearing them). However, from late spring/early summer to early fall I can’t stand the thought of wearing socks to bed.  Fortunately, I found this link while browsing Pinterest. Isn’t Pinterest fantastic? Anyway, immediately after finding this I went in search of socks and scissors!


This is as simple as it looks – cut the toes off of a pair of cotton socks. After applying lotion to your heels before bed slip these socks on to hold in the lotion.

Am I the only one who thinks these are absolutely adorable?

    I must try this! I hate wearing socks to bed but some wiggle room but just be the trick. Thanks for sharing.

      Have you tried it yet? I am so happy I found this on Pinterest and gave it a shot. Sleeping with socks on has never been so comfortable!
