Ever worn the wrong style socks for your shoes and found yourself in a dilemma?

The clothing retailer shared the handy hack on its Instagram page, which has racked up more than 421,000 views and hundreds of comments from amazed fashionistas, The Sun reported.

They captioned the video: “Fashion hack alert. Caught out with the wrong socks? Try this.”

The clever video shows a woman with a pair of normal neon pink socks that would clearly be visible with her silver, metallic loafer shoes.

She then pulls down the sock over her toes as if she were taking them off so only the tip is still attached to her foot.

She then wraps the top of the sock under her foot and secures it over her heel.

And as a result, she’s created hidden pop socks that aren’t seen when she puts on her shoes.

The handy hack appears to best work with tight, thin socks that can easily fold over and fit inside your shoes and help you out in a tricky situation.

Many ASOS followers were quick to praise the sock tip and said they’d try it themselves.

“Mind blown, life changed,” one person commented.

“This is revolutionary,” added another.

“This is life changing hahaha,” a third said.

“What kind of magic is this??” questioned another.

But not everyone was sure it would work for them, with one person saying: “I’m not convinced it will stay there,” while another agreed, adding, “There is no way your socks are not going to slip down into your shoe.”


The sock trick isn’t the only hack to go viral.

A lot can be done with an old tea bag too it appears.

With tea being a chock-a-block full of antioxidants and goodness, it would be a shame to throw it out after just one use.

Here are some handy ways you can get the most out of your tea bags.

1. Soothing minor skin irritations like sunburns, mosquito bites and cold sores

2. Remove dark circles and rejuvenate tired, puffy eyes

Soak a used tea bag in warm water and gently place under the eye area.

3. Tea bags can make great deodorisers

To keep your footwear scent-free, tuck a dry tea bag in each overnight to absorb any odours.

4. Want to freshen up your fridge?

Place a few tea bags into a plastic container and place them in your fridge

5. Degreaser

Soaking your dishes in the sink overnight with a few tea bags will help remove tough, baked on grease. The next morning, they’ll be much easier to clean.


Earlier this year, a $5 cleaning hack sent the internet into a spin.

The $5.49 denture cleaner called Polident has been praised by a number of different users, who said it transformed their mucky kitchen tiles, revitalised old couches and even wiped out nasty odours from smelly shoes.

It all started with a simple post in an Aussie Facebook group, Mums Who Clean, where a woman shared her impressive before and after shots of her beige sofa after giving it a good scrub using the denture cleaner.

After mixing just three of the tablets with some warm water in a spray bottle, she said she let the solution soak in for five minutes before scrubbing the sofa “hard” with a dish wash brush — using a towel to absorb the dirty water.

The mum repeated this trick until the towel came back clean, using three bottles of water and nine tablets in total to make her sofa look as good as new.
