Make you Fink on Friday

Got smelly feet?

Do you suffer from foot odour?

All hail the silver socks…

Silver Socks

By now just about everyone has heard of the fabulous benefits from infusing silver nanoparticles into socks. No more foot odor, no more smelly shoes and sneakers, no more athlete’s foot when using silver socks.

Benefits of silver socks:

  • Silver kills odor-causing bacteria, preventing odors
  • Silver Socks promote better foot health and hygiene
  • Unique antimicrobial properties of silver fight athlete’s foot and odor

Make Silver Socks at Home For Pennies

No need to purchase high priced silver socks from specialty stores. Just spray MesoSilver on socks you already own. MesoSilver consists of silver nanoparticles that absorb into absorbent cotton fibers to produce the desired antimicrobial properties. Any sock that consists of cotton or has some cotton content will make a fine silver sock. To make silver socks from socks you already have could not be easier. Here is a simple four step process to make silver socks.

  • Find a pair of all cotton or cotton containing material.
  • Wash, rinse and dry the socks.
  • Spray on MesoSilver colloidal silver and let air dry.
  • Your socks are now impregnated with silver nanoparticles ready for use.
  • Reapply lightly after each wash.

Effectiveness of Colloidal Silver is Unparalleled

Colloidal silver is reported to be unparalleled at killing bacterial, fungal and viral pathogens hence very effective for making silver socks. Colloidal silver has a history spanning hundreds of years as an effective germ fighter. It is believed that the pathogens cannot become immune to the killing power of silver. The known germicidal properties of silver combined with the high particle surface area of silver nanoparticles provide unsurpassed antimicrobial properties needed to make the perfect silver socks.

What is the Active Ingredient in MesoSilver?

Mesosilver is 0.9999 pure silver sub-nanometer sized particles suspended in pure deionized water. This combination is called a colloid. The silver particles in Mesosilver have been measured to be 0.65 nanometers in diameter, which is less than three times the diameter of an atom of silver. Because these silver particles are so small and the concentration of particles is high, the result is a silver colloid with a very high particle surface area. In the world of chemistry, surface area determines how effectively a substance will react with its environment. It is the surface area of the silver particles coming in contact with the microbes that is believed to kill them on contact. The germicidal properties of metallic silver have been known for hundreds of years. While the silver particles are believed  to be one of the most effective natural agents known for killing pathogens, they are non-toxic to humans.

Mesosilver is the Most Effective Colloidal Silver

Many products are advertised as being colloidal silver, but in fact are mostly ionic silver solutions. A true silver colloid consists mostly of silver nanoparticles. Learn The Truth About Ionic Silver that other producers don’t want you know. Mesosilver has the highest percentage of its silver content in the form of silver nanoparticles, not silver ions, which make it perfect for making silver socks at home.

But wait!

This silver is smaller than microscopic, we are talking atom size here. Correctly the colloidal silver is Bacteriostatic Colloidal Silver…

Now read what Wiki has to say on this new word “bacteriostatic.’

“Some nanoparticle products may have unintended consequences. Researchers have discovered that bacteriostatic silver nanoparticles used in socks to reduce foot odor are being released in the wash. These particles are then flushed into the waste water stream and may destroy bacteria which are critical components of natural ecosystems, farms, and waste treatment processes.”Wikipedia

Wiki says ‘may‘, I have read sources that say ‘do!

The products are not harmful to humans on the skin, in fact silver has been used as an antibacterial since the time of Alexander the Great, because it’s effectiveness is as a catalyst, which means it doesn’t actually react with the body.

Apparently laboratory rats and mice inhaling these nanoparticles aren’t so lucky. In fact, there are thoughts as a result of this research that indicate these nanoparticles of colloidal silver could be as bas as, or maybe worse than asbestos if inhaled in sufficient quantities.

Which raises the question, is nanotechnology environmentally friendly?

Are your socks impregnated with colloidal silver?

After a comment from a reader, I will add this very important link:

  1. Size really matters in this case, because nanoparticles are novel compounds with different properties, even if they are made of familiar materials. There’s been so little research, public awareness, and regulatory caution around potential impacts of them that it’s a little disconcerting. I came across this article months ago:

  2. I have heard that silver has anti-bacterial qualities, viruses are no fan of silver either.

    • >Alex, a fact that was widely known in the past. I, however, was blythely unaware until researching for this post; although, I will say that there was a niggle in the back of my mind about the same and I wonder if that niggle may in fact be a remembrance from a past life or some such for I cannot remember ever having read it.
