How to fold a t-shirt properly

Keeping your closet, closet or dresser in order is an art that requires some skill. In this article, we want to offer simple recommendations on how to fold t-shirts neatly and compactly to avoid deformation of the fabric and to use the space efficiently.

Why is proper folding important?

The ancient Chinese art of organizing space feng shui says that a well-groomed and organized closet creates favorable energy in the home, promoting harmony and well-being of its inhabitants. Proper placement and stacking of things in the closet helps keep positive energy flowing and also improves the aesthetics of the space.

However, a neat, organized closet is more than just aesthetically pleasing. Keeping things in order can make your life much easier without much effort. First of all, it affects time saving - you don't have to spend time looking for the right thing if everything is neatly stacked and laid out. Besides, clutter in your closet can be a source of stress, while even the very process of putting things in order has an anti-stress effect. Especially if you are skilled at quickly folding t-shirts, shirts and other closet items.

Benefits of folding t-shirts properly:

  • neatly folded items take up less space than those that are just thrown in the closet;
  • When things are folded by category and color, it's easier to find what you're looking for;
  • neatly folded items give your closet a more aesthetically pleasing look;
  • proper folding helps to keep things in perfect condition, preventing them from warping and creasing.

Thus, proper folding of t-shirts in your closet not only saves space, but also helps to improve the overall order and usability of your closet.

3. the "2-second method":

  • lay the T-shirt backside down and straighten it out;
  • mentally draw a horizontal cross line down the center of the garment, then draw a longitudinal line to the left of the neck so that it separates about a third of the shirt;
  • mark three points: A at the intersection of the two lines, B at the collar line, and C at the end of the lengthwise line;
  • grasp the fabric at point A with your left hand and at point B with your right hand;
  • holding the shirt in the middle, connect point B to point C;
  • holding the fabric at points B and C with your right hand, pull outward with your left hand to the center of the T-shirt where mark A is. Place the item horizontally on the table.
  • fold the T-shirt so that the front covers the protruding sleeve.

The garment can be left as it is or folded in half again.
