Did you see the first rules of learning to fold clothes properly? If not, take a peek here.
So we’re going to start with socks. And I realize that seems like an odd choice when there are much bigger fish to fry with an out-of-control underwear drawer and all. Or the tshirts that are everywhere and your husband still can’t find the one he wants to wear.
Have no fear – all of these issues will be covered in the days to come.
We’re starting with socks because they are easy to fold, fast to fold…and you can make your sock drawer look great in 10 minutes or less.
If you can see quick, promising results, you’ll be motivated to move onto something a little harder or time-consuming. Before you know it, your whole dresser will be done!
So let’s get going…
This is the method that most of the world uses.
It is only because they don’t know a better way. So promise yourself that today will be the last day you use the Sock Ball Method.
1) Start with a clean pair of socks, lying in the same direction and smoothed out with your hands so there are no obvious lumps and bumps.
2) Place one sock directly on top of the other. Line up the toes and the heels precisely.
3) Using one hand to hold the heels in place, fold the right side of the socks over to the left.
4) Smooth socks with your hand to ensure there are no wrinkles and they are lying flat.
Here is another example with socks that don’t have a calf portion (sports socks):
Now wasn’t that easy?! You’ll have your whole sock drawer folded in a matter of minutes. Then it can look like this:
And you’ll be oh so happy.
