Warming Socks are a historic home remedy for colds, tired feet, and insomnia:
- Take a pair of cotton socks and soak them in water of room temperature.
- Wring out so they do not drip, but remain saturated.
- Put socks on.
- Put on dry wool socks over top of wet socks.
- Go to sleep.
- Wake up with toasty feet and feeling better.
To get the joke in the title you would have had to watch a lot of television in 1994.
