I thought it was only Americans who made this simple mistake, but I've recently seen it written by apparently educated Brits, even some GOM are guilty!

Let it loose, but don't lose it.

The garment is loose fitting.

Footloose and fancy free.

Loose women are to be applauded.

Loose nuts can be dangerous.

Loose change can be handy.

You can't loose a bet, a race, an election, your keys or wallet.
