The words loose and lose are mixed up in writing. Look what they mean and then read a tip how to remember them.


Lose

to suffer the loss of, to miss

He's always losing his car keys.

She lost a lot of blood in the accident.

I win! You lose!

 


Loose

the opposite of tight or contained

Wear comfortable, loose clothing to your exercise class.

My shoes are loose.

There were some loose wires hanging out of the wall.

 

How to remember?

It's easy! Lose means the loss of, to miss. So when you don't know how to write, take the loose with two o, think that you miss an o and you have... lose!
