- Aug 14, 2018 -

In some roadside stalls, there are often some selling socks, "10 yuan 3 pairs" or even "1 yuan 1 pair", many people buy. But sometimes consumers will find that when they buy it for a day or two, the socks are broken, and some socks have odors, which fade when placed in the water. These poor quality, fading, scented socks are not guaranteed in quality. Wearing such socks often poses a health hazard.

Experts remind that socks that have been shredded once or several times, unless the consumer wears socks because of some special reasons such as hooking of foreign objects, in general, the quality of such socks is definitely unqualified. Socks generally use cotton yarn, silk thread and synthetic fiber as the main materials, but it is necessary to add high-strength fibers at the toes and heels, and adopt a more scientific weaving process to ensure the wear resistance of the socks.

Compared with the situation of non-wearing and fading, the problem of excessive formaldehyde content in the socks and the presence of aromatic amines is even more terrible. Many consumers know that some unqualified clothing will have aromatic amines and formaldehyde exceeding the standard, which will affect human health, but it does not pay attention to the socks worn on the feet. This is actually a big mistake. Because the sweat glands, blood vessels, and nervous system on the feet are very developed, when they wear for a long time, they will have sweat. If the socks are added with banned aromatic amines, the sweat may decompose the dye to reduce the aromatic amines, and the socks are wrapped by the shoes, which are not easy to scatter harmful substances, frequently rubbed, and are easily absorbed by the body, which has an impact.

Socks fade because the color fastness of the product is not enough, it is not only the problem of dirty shoes, but more importantly, it can cause harm to human health. The color fastness of the socks is divided into 1 to 5 grades, and the 5th grade is the highest. According to the regulations, the color fastness of the socks should reach 4, so that it will not fade. However, some socks have poor color fastness indicators, and some are even only grade 1, which may cause skin damage to allergies. It is not recommended to wear them.

Most consumers only consider price, comfort, color, etc. when purchasing socks, and have never paid attention to the problem of poor quality socks. Experts remind the public that if you wear inferior socks that are inferior in quality every day, the harm to the body is great. It is recommended that the public try to buy socks in regular shopping malls. Don't buy "three no" products and socks with excessive smell.

Consumers should pay attention to the identification when purchasing socks. The regular socks are mostly made by large socks factory. The equipment is advanced, the process is mature, the raw materials are good, the quality is stable through the various processes, and the appearance is uniform. The fabric density is uniform and thick. The color is pure, the shape is well formed, and there is a formal trademark. Most of the miscellaneous products are simple in equipment, manual operation, poor selection of raw materials, thin and uneven fabric, low density, less color, more defects, poor molding, and no formal trademark.
