My reason: Why I do not put my socks in the dryer

I hope that my explanation makes sense.  It works for me and it helps me to avoid headaches.

As a visually impaired person, I depend heavily on all of my available senses to help me with my daily life.  They all help me to compensate for my loss of vision and in this case the sense of hearing is what I depend on. 

So picture this:  I have just finished doing my washing and am about ready to put my clothes into the dryer.  Socks are very small and if they fall out of my hands I would never hear them falling. 

I would not miss them until I check things out as I either start to place my clothes in the dryer or afterwards when I remove them from the dryer.

If the socks have fallen, I now have to go searching.  I would have to feel around on the floor, close to the washer, and if I am unable to find them there then I need to search my washer.

Until I decided not to put them into the dryer, this was a very trying time for me.  So here is what I do.  After the laundry is done, I go to great pains to check every piece of clothing as I remove them from the washer.  I look for my socks and upon finding them I then hang them up on my clothes line to dry.

This is what works for me.
