Cleaning tennis socks
Okay this might seem like a stupid question and non-specific to tennis, but on the insole of my white adidas barricade Vs, the black adidas logo wears and marks off onto the heel of the socks, and when I run my socks through the wash they still come out looking dirty in that area. I wear thorlos which specifically say not to bleach. I don't seem to have this problem with my nike courtballistecs, as the ortholite insole doesn't seem to rub off onto the sock, and I don't really wear white socks for anything but tennis.

Adidas, switch to ortholite!! Anyways, does anybody else have this problem and has found a way to keep the socks looking white? Cheers

Good question ... maybe I'm a clean freak or something :-?
I guess it just looks kinda grotty...

sometimes I get this feeling, too, especially for new stuff even when they develop a blemish somewhere that only I know its existence, but unless it doesn't affect its functionality I get over it quickly.

Maybe it's the 10 price tag per thorlos sock :neutral:

I just had this happen with a brand new pair of socks that I wore with new shoes. The swoosh on the insole stained the sock. It didnt come out in the wash. Not happy since the socks werent cheap but you cant see it when you wear them so I'll deal with it.
