      I admit I was skeptical when I tried this. I used this treatment on 4 socks at various stages of dirtiness, boiling them for 5 minutes. I put safety pins on them, and then washed a batch of socks. After they were done, we compared the treated socks and the untreated socks. There was no visible difference.
