4 Time-Saving Tricks for Perfectly Folded Clothes
The worst part of doing laundry just got a whole lot easier.
The not-so-funny thing about laundry day is that most taxing part comes at the very end of the chore. Come on, engineers. We’ve got machines to wash and dry our clothes, but not fold them, too? Luckily, Buzzfeed recently highlighted some creative ways to make the drudgery of folding a little bit easier. Watch the video for a full demonstration, but here’s a sneak peek at their handy tips:
1. Tuck socks into themselves
This method makes sock storage tidy and efficient — and no more digging through your drawer to excavate a matching set.
2. Do the T-shirt twist
This trick requires a little geometry (just a little!), but once you master the pinch-and-twist move, all of your tees will look as crisply folded as they did at the store.
3. Employ a magazine to help with button-downs
Its sharp edges and handy size make it the perfect guideline for getting this task just right.
4. Stop sweaters from stretching
Style guru Clinton Kelly is a fan of this trick, which really helps when you’ve run out of room in your sweater drawer. Instead of hanging your favorite fuzzy pullover from the shoulders, fold it over the hanger so it won’t get misshapen.
