Invincible Teabag v. Missing Sock Syndrome

You are probably familiar with the Missing Sock Syndrome which, no matter how careful and methodical you are, causes odd socks to disappear when processed through the washing machine and tumble dryer. It's an inescapable part of life - socks have their own reality which occasionally departs from ours. But imagine my surprise when, after unloading the tumble dryer,  instead of losing socks we had gained two fully intact teabags!
Enquiries are ongoing but the suspicion is that our Phil is the root cause of the phenomenon. He has been known to grab teabags on his way out to work and stuff them in his pocket, for later use. It seems the teabags somewhow escaped from Phil's pantaloons during the washing/drying process and proceeded to flavour everything with green tea and lemon. Considering that in this load of washing we did not lose any socks, perhaps we have accidentally hit upon the secret of restraining sock reality...
