Do they really get clean if you tie them together?
Mo's socks get funky. Seriously funky.
I've only seen that one Hoarders show but I have seen news reports about hoarders. I was surprised to see that there was a show about it because I never would have thought that it was a common problem.
We seem to have a lot of animal hoarders in the PNW (serial killers and animal hoarders -- what's up with that?) but it seems like these people usually start with good intentions and things just get out of control so I'm not sure it's hoarding in the classic sense.
