Wardrobe-How to Fold Your Clothes-01
We thought it might be a good idea to post on how to maintain ones wardrobe properly. I am sure people have their own ways of maintaining their own wardrobes. Whatever suits you fine is alright. If you think you have a better solution or think your solution works better for you, then by all means do let us know as to how.
We has earlier touched upon organising clothes here:
With a few years of ironing experience behind me, I thought I’ll show people how to fold clothes before putting them in your wardrobe. This is just my way of doing things, and if you feel you have a better way of accomplishing the same, do let us know.
Folding a Half Sleeve* Shirt** in 10 Easy Steps:
Take you half sleeve shirt and fold the collar.
Lay it out flat, the buttons facing you and even the surface out. This is shown below
This is optional. You may want to button up a few buttons as you will be flipping the shirt later. If you feel, you can flip it without soiling it, then you can skip this step. (With some experience, you will find that you can skip this.) The downside of this is that, when you take your shirt out to wear it, you have to un-button it first and this takes time and can be annoying when you are in a hurry.
Flip the shirt over. Now fold one side of the shirt as shown in fig.
Now, just fold one of the sleeves as shown in the fig. below. Make sure all along that there is no wrinkling when you fold it.
Repeat Step 04 with the other side of the shirt. i.e., fold the other side of the shirt inwards. Make sure the spacing is uniform.
Repeat Step-05 with the other sleeve. There are two ways of folding sleeves. If you notice carefully, you will see that this sleeve has been folded differently compared to the way the sleeve was folded in Step-05. Both of them work equally fine. This is just to illustrate that it can be done in more than one way. However stick to the same kind of fold on both sleeves.
Now fold the shirt along the horizontal centre inwards, as shown in fig. below.
Flip the shirt over and you are done. Hopefully, it should come out as shown below , if you followed the instructions carefully. Now go ahead and out it in your wardrobe.
*Colloquially we refer to it as Half Shirt. However, half shirt means short tops and hence the usage is not appropriate.
** – It is assumed that you are using a wrinkle free shirt. Otherwise, it is better to iron your clothes. Even with wrinkle free clothes, ironing is suggested.
