How to Get Grass Seeds Out of Socks


Grass seeds are tiny and annoying, but they can be even more annoying if they get stuck in your feet. The good news is that removing grass seeds from your feet is pretty easy, especially if you're not doing anything too strenuous or muddy. Here's how to remove grass seeds from socks:

Wear closed-toed shoes.

If you're going to be mowing, gardening or otherwise walking on grass, wear closed-toed shoes. This will avoid getting your socks wet and causing seeds to stick to them. If you do this while wearing open-toed shoes (e.g., sandals), the seeds will most likely get stuck to your feet instead because they'll have more places to go.

If you still want to wear open-toed shoes when mowing, consider wearing a pair of rubber boots over them so that any stray grass ends can't get into the shoe's sole; or at least have a towel handy for wiping off any debris before taking off your footwear after being outside for too long!

Don't touch the seeds.

  • Don't touch the seeds.

  • Don't pick at the seeds.

  • Don't rub your feet on the ground.

  • Don't walk barefoot on the lawn.

Get a pair of tweezers.

  • Get a pair of tweezers.

  • Put the tweezers in warm water to soften up the seeds so they can be removed with the tweezers more easily.

  • Remove each seed from your sock by pulling it out with the tweezers, but don’t touch them directly with your hands—they may cause an allergic reaction!

Wash your hands frequently.

  • Wash your hands frequently.

  • Wash your hands before you eat.

  • Wash your hands after you touch your face.

  • Wash your hands after you touch the grass and then again to make sure that any germs from the grass have been killed by soap, which they probably will be because this is 2018 and we invented soap in like 1918 or something.

Don't do the barefoot lawn mowing thing.

Don't do the barefoot lawn mowing thing.

This is a big one for me because I know a lot of people who do this. Do not, under any circumstances, mow your lawn without shoes on and if you are going to walk around in your yard barefoot, wear closed-toed shoes. While it may seem counterintuitive to wear closed-toed shoes when you're out in your yard, doing so will keep bits of grass seed from getting stuck between your toes and under your nails (and eventually into your socks).

If you have small children who like to run around outside and play on the grass while they're wearing flip flops or sandals? Don't let them do that either! These types of footwear just don't offer enough protection against small particles like grass seeds getting into sensitive areas like between their toes or under their nails where they could cause an uncomfortable itch or worse—infection!

Shower immediately with antibacterial soap.

To remove grass seeds from your socks, it's best to use antibacterial soap. You shouldn't use water that is too hot or cold, as this can irritate the skin. You should also avoid scrub brushes, vinegars or bleach solutions because they may cause further damage to the skin. Finally, do not use a razor blade on any part of your body; this can result in cuts and infections. A bar of antibacterial soap will be best for cleaning out all those grass seeds!

There are a lot of ways to get grass seed out of your feet, but it's easy to avoid them altogether.

  • Wear closed-toed shoes

  • Don't touch the seeds

  • Get a pair of tweezers

  • Wash your hands frequently

If you don't want to remove grass seeds from your feet, there are a few other things you can do:

  • Don’t be a barefoot lawn mower. This is probably the best way to avoid getting grass seeds in the first place. If this isn’t an option for you, though, here are some other tips:

  • Shower immediately after coming inside (or even just walking through the house). Using antibacterial soap will help kill any bacteria that may have come in contact with your skin while outside; it’s also good practice for general hygiene and health reasons. Padding around on freshly shaven soles is not only painful but also very uncomfortable—and often leads people right back outside again!

  • Don dark clothing when going out into tall or long grasses—making sure they cover everything up to above the knees helps keep things cool and prevents scratches or bruises too!


So to sum up, there are a lot of ways to get grass seed out of your feet but it's easy to avoid them altogether. Just wear closed-toed shoes, don't touch the seeds, get a pair of tweezers and wash your hands frequently.
