Tips & Tricks January 28, 2016

You know how the dryer eats socks, and you’re left with mismatched feet for the rest of your days? (Side note, I have a theory on this, comment for more details.)

I KNOW exactly where those socks go! They are eaten by the Tiffle Whiffle Piffle. This creature cleverly disguises itself as a dust bunny. They live under the dryer or the beds. They eat socks–preferably one from your favorite pair. The best protection for the socks is to put them in a lingerie bag before tossing into the washer and the dryer. Evidently, the Tiffle Whiffle Piffle cannot penetrate the bag’s net unless it has been carelessly secured. (Actually, the dryer is not the culprit–the washing machine is. The belt on my washer slipped its path. When I opened up the machine to replace the belt, I found about 5 dozen mismatched pair of socks.)

Thanks for sharing, Pam! I thought I was the only one who knew about the TWP, but it seems we’ve both been victims 🙂

Miranda says:

That’s hilarious!! I am passing this along. Although TWP may be eating my socks I’m pretty sure my teenager’s socks just come to the laundry without a mate. I think they go on vacation under his/her bed.

Genna says:

Ah, the wonderful tropical island of UnderBed…I think that’s where the TWP vacations when the dryer is not in use!

Jessy says:

Can you eat off of them if you paint the upper part..?

Genna says:

It depends on what type of paint you use- just make sure to read the label carefully!

Linda says:

It sounds goofy, but we are an older couple, and have time to use a safety pin to keep our pairs together.

Genna says:

Thanks Linda, that is a GREAT tip! You’re outsmarting the dryer troll!

Can you order for one person?

Genna says:

We are working on expanding our serving size flexibility, but in the mean time, we do have many happy single customers. They tell us that they appreciate the leftovers (everything freezes well)! Hope that helps! You can check out our upcoming classic box recipes here: http://bit.ly/1JuFYrc and our upcoming veggie box recipes here: http://bit.ly/1ZO9Ym6

Hi!!
Just want know is your products (fruits and vegetables, meat) are GMO, organic and free of hormones and antibióticos?
Thanks so much!

Genna says:

As of right now, we are still working on a certified Organic/GMO-free box, but we try to order Organic/GMO-free ingredients as much as possible! Many of our suppliers, such as Murray’s chicken are certified GMO-free, and we do use many of the “Clean 15” ingredients in our boxes. For further questions about specific ingredients, please feel free to reach out to our chefs at thekitchen@hellofresh.com, and check out our upcoming menu options here: http://bit.ly/1JuFYrc

There is no where on this site that says exactly what kitchen implements are needed to cook these meals. There are beginning cooks out there who may not have required knives or pots or graters or whatever may be required. Putting out a list of necessary items would be helpful.

Genna says:

Hi there! Very limited kitchen supplies are needed to cook our meals. Here’s the extent of it for most meals:
– Knife
– Cutting board
– Grater
– Spatula
– Pots/pans
– Oven/stove
