Millions of people lose socks every day when they do their washing, AEG have made light of this situation by creating a brainteaser that challenges you to find the odd sock
Created by the appliance company AEG, part of the Electrolux group, this tricky brainteaser tests even the sharpest of minds. We lose odd socks everyday through the laundry process. Whether this be as we’re taking them downstairs to the washing machine, in the washing machine drum, the tumble dryer, from the washing line or even in our own draws.
In fact, whether people wear odd socks or not often divides people too. But no matter where you stand on the debate, nothing is more frustrating than that odd sock that you just can’t seem to pair.
All socks (but one) have been paired in the brainteaser above. Can you find the odd sock placed alone without its matching pair in the brainteaser: www.aeg.co.uk
Socks are great at hiding, and this one is nestled carefully amongst the dirty clothing and washing baskets above.
With a mix of colours, patterns, and clothing types- from spotty trousers right through to stripey bras- this brain teaser is sure to test your visual and problem-solving skills.
To make things even harder, there is a whole load of things ready to go into the washing machine in this load.
It’s also pretty small but try to do it without cheating and zooming in.
That’s enough to go with in the way of clues so you’re on your own for this one now.
The fastest time stands at 35 seconds, but some people have taken up to 4 minutes to solve it! Can you beat the record for this one?

AEG comments “Odd socks are inevitable when you’re doing your washing, drying and ironing. Even the most tidy and organised people are partial to losing a sock or two along the way. We wanted to make light of this situation through a fun and light-hearted brainteaser that challenges just how quick we can find an odd sock. And if you’re not bad at finding an odd sock in a brainteaser, how do you fare when it comes to finding them in reality?”
